On the path of Love,
We are neither masters
Nor the owners of our lives.
We are only a brush
In the hand of the Master Painter.

Doing Things From Your Soul

Morning Walk on April 1st, 2012

When you do things from your soul,
you feel a river moving in you, a joy.
When action comes from another section,
the feeling disappears.

~ Rumi

Tender Words

Tender words we spoke
to one another
are sealed in the secret vaults of heaven.
One day like rain,
they will fall to earth
and grow green
all over the world.

Jalal ad-Din Muḥammad Rumi

Knock, And He’ll Open The Door

Knock, and He’ll open the door.
Vanish, and He’ll make you shine like the sun.
Fall, and He’ll raise you to the heavens.
Become nothing, and He’ll turn you into everything.

–  Jalal ad-Din Muḥammad Rumi
