Selected Poems of Rumi
Selected Poems of Rumi | Jalalu'l-Din Rumi
29 posts | 5 read | 4 to read
In recent years the stirring, unforgettable poetry of Jalālu'l-Dīn Rūmī (1207-1273), the great Sūfi teacher and the greatest mystical poet of Iran, has gained tremendous popularity in the western world. Although he died over 700 years ago, his poetry is timeless. In the best modern translations, the passion and playfulness of his words reach across the ages to communicate themselves to people today with an undiluted fervor and excitement.Rūmī produced an enormous body of work -- as many as 2,500 mystical odes, 25,000 rhyming couplets, and 1,600 quatrains -- some of it instructional, some personal and emotional, much of it sublimely beautiful. The present volume includes over 100 of his finest lyrics, including "The Marriage of True Minds," "The Children of Light," "The Man who Looked Back on his way to Hell," "The Ascending Soul," "The Pear-Tree of Illusion," "The Riddles of God," and many more."In some of these poems," says A. J. Arberry in the Introduction, "the mystic's passion is so exuberant, his imagination so overflowing, that we catch glimpses of the very madness of Divine experience."

Several of Rumi‘s writing draws upon on these types of contrasts and comparisons on how everything manifests in relation to another and everything, both good and bad, is therefore necessary. An interesting point of view.

“Sit with your friends; don‘t go back to sleep.
Don‘t sink like a fish to the bottom of the sea.”

Nothing to do but stay warm and read.

tpixie @Faibka yes!! Another reason I wish my mom was around! I could sit and cuddle and read as opposed to doing all the cooking and cleaning!! ♥️😍 but glad for the rest of the family!! I had to go into work today and so my son helped make the rub for the pork roast we‘re having tomorrow! (edited) 13mo
Faibka @tpixie sounds yummy! Bummer that you had to go to work but good of your son to help out! And yes, today again I‘m shameless lounging around wearing a Santa hat and reading. I worked so hard the whole year, I think I deserve it 😜 13mo
tpixie @Faibka yes! You do!!! 13mo

With love your inner voice will find a tongue
Growing like a silent white lily in the heart”

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I'll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in the grass,
the world is too full to talk about.

Rumi, from A Great Wagon

Ok Littens. I've been progressing in my post-election existential crisis and I'm passed depression, on to... voracious contemplation of the meaning of life and our place in it. I am looking for recommendations: books that opened your eyes, opened your heart, were life-altering and soul-searching. Religion, philosophy, psychology, mysticism, social justice... hit me with your recommendations. If it rocked your world-view, I want to read it!

HardcoverHearts This Rebecca Solnit book has saved my sanity this year. I clutch it close and recommend it far and wide. 2y
Claireluana @HardcoverHearts awesome! Thank you! I will check it out! 2y
