Lessons of love

Love sometimes wants to do us a great favor:

hold us upside down

and

shake all the nonsense out.

Rose is not fair

THE rose is not fair without the beloved’s face,
Nor merry the Spring without the sweet laughter of wine;
The path through the fields, and winds from a flower strewn place,
Without her bright check, which glows like a tulip fine,
Nor winds softly blowing, fields deep in corn, are fair.

Two kinds of Intelligence

There are two kinds of intelligence:

one acquired,
as a child in school memorizes facts and concepts
from books and from what the teacher says,
collecting information from the traditional sciences
as well as from the new sciences.

With such intelligence you rise in the world.
You get ranked ahead or behind others
in regard to your competence in retaining
information.

You stroll with this intelligence
in and out of fields of knowledge, getting always more
marks on your preserving tablets.

There is another kind of tablet, one
already completed and preserved inside you.


A spring overflowing its spring box . A freshness
in the center of the chest. This other intelligence
does not turn yellow or stagnate.

It’s fluid,
and it doesn’t move from outside to inside
through conduits of plumbing-learning.

This second knowing is a fountainhead
from within you, moving out.

Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

Dance of Existence

dance-4

I am filled with You.

This dance is the joy of Existence.

ram footnote :

Love is your inner wealth ,

seed of which you bring in your closed hands

to plant in this world

to make it a tree of happiness.

New Challenge

A new challenge everyday
You keep away and delay;
When I act to close the gap
Fate says there is a bigger play.

Only God

Watching my hand;

God is moving it.

Hearing my voice;

God is speaking…

Walking from room to room —

No one here

but

only

God

Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi(1207 – 1273 )English version by Andrew Harvey

Original Language Persian/Farsi

Love all.

Gifts of God

There are so many gifts
Still unopened from your birthday,
there are so many hand-crafted presents
that have been sent to you by God.
The Beloved does not mind repeating,
“Everything I have is also yours.”
