Did I Not Say To You

Did I not say to you,

“Go not there, for I am your friend;

in this mirage of annihilation …..

I am the fountain of life?” 

Even though in anger you depart a hundred thousand years from me,

in the end you will come to me……

for I am your goal. 

Did I not say to you,

“I am the sea and you are a single fish;

go not to dry land, for I am your crystal sea?”

Did I not say to you,

” Go not like birds to the snare; come, for

I am the power of flight and your wings and feet?”

Did I not say to you,

“Be not content with worldly forms,

for I am the fashioner of the tabernacle of your contentment?”

Did I not say to you,

“ They will waylay you and make you cold,

for I am the fire and warmth and heat of your desire?”

Did I not say to you,

“ They will implant in you ugly qualities

so that you will forget that I am the source of purity to you?”

Did I not say to you,

“Do not say from what direction the servant’s affairs come into order?”

I am the Creator without directions.

If you are the lamp of the heart, know where the road is to the house;

and if you are godlike of attribute, know that I am your Maser.

secret of love


desires that……

this secret should be revealed,

if a mirror reflects not….. of what use is it?

Know this……

why thy mirror reflects not?

Because the rust has not been scoured from its face.

If it were purified from all rust and defilement,

It would reflect the shining of the SUN Of GOD.

O friends, ye have now heard this tale,

Which sets forth the very essence of my case.

path of eternity

Spirit …..

find your way….

in seeking lowness like a stream…

and tread the path of selflessness into eternity.

Remember God so much that you are forgotten…..

Let the caller and the called disappear;

be lost in the Call.

Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi
(1207 – 1273 )

nectar of eternity

Any Soul That Drank the Nectar

Any soul that drank the nectar of your passion…. was lifted.
From that water of life….now that is in a state of elation.

Death came…..

smelled me….. and sensed your fragrance instead……
From then on…… death lost all hope of me.

Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

All through eternity

All through eternity
Beauty unveils His exquisite form
in the solitude of nothingness;
He holds a mirror to His Face
and beholds His own beauty.
he is the knower and the known,
the seer and the seen;
No eye but His own
has ever looked upon this Universe.

His every quality finds an expression:
Eternity becomes the verdant field of Time and Space;
Love, the life-giving garden of this world.
Every branch and leaf and fruit
Reveals an aspect of His perfection-
They cypress give hint of His majesty,
The rose gives tidings of His beauty.

Whenever Beauty looks,
Love is also there;
Whenever beauty shows a rosy cheek
Love lights Her fire from that flame.
When beauty dwells in the dark folds of night
Love comes and finds a heart
entangled in tresses.
Beauty and Love are as body and soul.
Beauty is the mine, Love is the diamond.

They have together
since the beginning of time-
Side by side, step by step.
