Tell all people, My daughter, that I am Love and Mercy itself.

Like the way a garden burns
in a hundred shades of orange in the fall,
a Lover's heart shrivels for a sense of the Beloved's touch.

Rumi

This morning,Contemplation led me to a garden
Neither outside this world nor within it.
"Garden of miracles!" I asked,"What kind of garden are you?"
It smiled. "One that fears nether winter nor autumn."

Rumi

May a wind from His garden breathe you this secret:
It is not only i who am speaking here
But you,too,your own soul,your own heart-
Only for you are we ever apart.

Rumi

Cupbearer,pour the vine! Let it flow and keep flowing!
I am sick of swinging between hope and fear.
Shatter thought,i want nothing to do with it!
Tear from my heart all unsable imaginings!
Hack from their chains the shameless joys of passion!
Dance into our assembly,Beloved,unveil Your Face!
Scatter graces with each swirl of Your robe of flame.

Even to detachment the heart can be attached,God knows,
For the heart is net spread for misery.
Transform my heart to a placeless place of safety,
Carry it to the mountains where it dies into You.
Come quickly! My body's tired of this country;
Make it drunk,set it free,call to it,"Come quickly!"
Offer me a cup overflowing with the vine of wonder
So i can no longer tell my heart from my feet.
Don't give me bread,or water,or peace,or sleep;
Thirst for You is the blood-money for a hundred souls like mine.

Rumi

God has crated the world in play, as it were. This is called Mahamaya, the Great Illusion.
Therefore one must take refuge in the Divine Mother, the Cosmic Power Itself.
It is She who has bound us with the shackles of illusion.
The realization of God is possible only when those shackles are severed.

Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa

Oh,where is this heart going,'I cried,
'My so intoxicated heart?'
And then the king of kings replied:
'Be still,it is coming towards you.'

Rumi
