Default Rumi!

Offshoot of two recent sigs by Parmanand which I really really loved.

Please feel free anyone to post some nuggets of wisdom, poetry, video or vlogs or blogs of this great saintly figure.

My favorite and an old one:

Quote:
Not Christian or Jew or
Muslim, not Hindu,
Buddhist, Sufi, or Zen.
Not any religion

or cultural system. I am
not from the east
or the west, not
out of the ocean or up

from the ground, not
natural or ethereal, not
composed of elements at all.
I do not exist,

am not an entity in this
world or the next,
did not descend from
Adam and Eve or any

origin story. My place is
the placeless, a trace
of the traceless.
Neither body or soul.

I belong to the beloved,
have seen the two
worlds as one and
that one
call to and know,

first, last, outer, inner,
only that breath breathing

human being.

sufi mystic - jelaluddin rumi - 13th century

I'm gonna paraphrase,

"Wounds are pathways for light to reach the heart."

By the way, I absolutely adore this individual. His poetry is soothing and very simplistic. It touches you, it provides inspiration to live and enjoy life!

@Gopal, thanks for opening this beautiful thread. I will share some more.

Love and peace be with you my friend

idumb once said that I have been the best thing that happened to this forum. lol!

To pass on the baton (or torch? what is more politically correct? don't wanna offend anyone here...) YOU have been the best thing that happened to this forum so far. I say this because although tryna shun weed some day I wish to toke with you and discuss Rumi.

But I am thoroughly incognizant about him. Also loved that quote. As if everything this man says is nurdles of gold. (Whatever that means. Don't wanna offend anyone.)

Finally to be on topic here is an animation about his life:



Again apologies in advance if I offended anyone with the embedding code.

Although I care nothing about others' approval, but coming from someone highly intelligent as you, Dinraat, really means a lot to me.

First of all, iDumb was correct. You are like the Erwin Schrodinger of this forum...your wit and writing is mirrored to his crazy equation on quantum physics.

Now, if you are passing the baton onto me, I gotta be Usain Bolt to take it to the next level. I am not to versed with one of the primary languages of this forum(Bangla), and that bars me from reading Zaved Bhai's superb stories. I don't burn th3 grass, but I am up for impromptu discussions about anything.


Again, I think I am taking this off-topic. I am here for Rumi. You are here for Rumi. A genuine lover of life. He was a keen observer of the way humans communicate with one another, the minute inklings of awe; and what contributed to that awe.

Girls post his quotes on Instagram without ever digging deeper into the man's life and who he was...As I said some time ago, we have to do it for the love and not for the likes; substance over quantity.


Once more,

"You have to keep breaking your heart for it to open."

This is deep as %&@#

Parmanand do you have any recommendations that are highly useful for someone to get their feet wet in Rumi's nectar? LOL
