Rumi Poetry

.
For all you poetry lovers, here's some of my favourite poems of Rumi, compiled into one

Your task is not to seek for love,
but merely to seek
and find all the barriers within yourself
that you have built against it.

--------------------

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.

--------------------

The wound is the place where the Light enters you.

--------------------

Don’t grieve. Anything you lose comes round in another form.

--------------------

Dance, when you're broken open.
Dance, if you've torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting.
Dance in your blood.
Dance when you're perfectly free.

--------------------

If you are irritated by every rub,
how will your mirror be polished?

--------------------

Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.

-------------------

There is a candle in your heart,
ready to be kindled.
There is a void in your soul,
ready to be filled.
You feel it, don't you?
