Rumi


The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don't go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don't go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth
across the doorsill where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don't go back to sleep.

If your guidance is your ego, don't rely on luck for help.
You sleep during the day and the nights are short.
By the time you wake up your life may be over.

Let the beauty we love be what we do.
Let yourself be silently drawn by the
stronger pull of what you really love.
Become the light.

“The minute I heard my first love story I started looking for you,
not knowing how blind that was.
Lovers don't finally meet somewhere.
They're in each other all along.”

“This is love: to fly toward a secret sky, to cause a
hundred veils to fall each moment.
First to let go of life.
Finally, to take a step without feet.”

Silence is the language of God, all else is poor translation.”

“Pilgrimage to the place of the wise is to find escape

from the flame of separateness.”

We come spinning out of nothingness, scattering stars like dust”


Reason is powerless in the expression of Love.


The only lasting beauty is the beauty of the heart.

The fragrance my friend, that floats to you this moment,
streams from the tent, of the secrets of God.

Coming here to bask in the beauty and the Truth that your Spirit guides you to in your travelings is like coming to a fountain of Truth, of Light, of Love, and I without fail leave your place energized in body, heart, mind, and Spirit. These words, every one an inspiration, every one a Truth that resonates deep within..something of harmony, of synchronicity. You are a kindred spirit, my dear friend....truly.

My humble gratitude to you for being a beacon of Light and Love and Peace and Truth.
