Rumi Sufi

I never understood the dances of the Dervish, the sufism, until I knew Rumi through his wisdom, peaceful heart & mind .

Your calling my name is My reply.  Your longing for Me is My message to you.   All your attempts to reach Me  are in reality My attempts to reach You.  Your fear and love are a noose to catch Me.    In the silence surrounding every call of “God”  Waits a thousand replies of “Here I am.” - Rumi #sufism #whirling #dervish #mevlevi #sufi #rumi

"Reason has no way to say its love. Only love opens that secret.  If you want to be more alive, love is the truest health." ~~Rumi~~

The poem by Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi is beautiful, as always. He has spoken only beautiful words. He is one of the most significant poets who are.
