When You Dance the Whole Universe Dances. What a Wonder, I’ve Looked and Now I Cannot Look away, Take Me or Do Not Take Me, Both are the Same As Long as There is Life in this Body, I am Your Servant. Jalal-Al-Din Rumi (via mariaodorosariosbellini)
Sufi semazens in Mevlevi ritual. The theme of Rumi's thought, like that of other mystic and Sufi poets, is essentially that of the concept of union with his beloved – from which/whom he has been cut off and become aloof – and his longing and desire to restore it.
