Rumi is one of my favorite poets, all his words of spirit are full of inspiration, love and peace for the soul. Perhaps most of all I Love Love, as Liviu Gheorghe recounts, you find at the end of the post. Until then, however, I have collected several Rumi quotes that if I assimilate, I would live much better.

Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhī, also known as Rumi, was a 13th century Persian poet, but also a jurist, theologian and Sufi mystic, who wrote some of the most profound and most beautiful poems of all time. But do not forget that reading and awareness is only the first step, because if you do not put into practice and act and everything is in vain.


"Study as much as you will, you will not know me, because I am different in hundreds of ways of your perception of me. Put yourself behind my eyes and see me how I see myself, because I have chosen to live in a place you can not see "- Rumi
You will then read about the 20 lessons you can learn from Rumi to have a more authentic, beautiful, loving life.1. Stop acting without meaning. You are the constantly moving universe.
"You were born with potential. You were born a god, full of self-confidence. You were born with ideals and dreams. You were born full of greatness, with wings. You were not made to coexist in a larval state, so do not force yourself there. You have wings. Use them and learn to fly. "
"Why should I stay at the bottom of the well when I have a strong rope hanging by my hand?"
"Become the sky. Dismiss the prison wall. Free yourself "
"Do you know what you are? You are the manuscript of a divine letter. You are a mirror reflecting a noble face. The universe is not outside of you. Look in your interior, everything you want to be, you are already. "2. Your job is to live your life in a way that makes sense to you, not to "you".
"Start a great, stupid project like Noah ... no matter what people think about you."


3. Never give up on yourself
"When you go through a difficult time, when everything seems to resist you, when you feel that you can not resist for even a minute, never give up. Because then is when life changes its course. "
"Suffering prepares you for happiness. She purges all that you have in the house of the soul with violence, that happiness may take place. Blow yellow leaves, so fresh green ones can grow in place. Remove the old roots so that new ones grow from underneath. Any kind of suffering afflicts your soul takes place to make places for good things to come in. "4. Ignorance is the closure of God
"Ignorance is the prison of God. Knowledge is the palace of God. "5. The treasures found outside you can not compare to the inner ones
"You look from the room in the room the diamond necklace that's already on your throat."
"If you knew each other, if you could see the most beautiful face, maybe you would not dive into your clay house. Why do not you move into a house of happiness that shines from every corner. You are the one who holds the treasure and you have always been. "
"Everything in the universe is in you. Ask yourself".
"Why are you so excited about the outside world, when a gold mine lies in you?"
"A fountain is inside of you. It does not go with an empty bucket.


6. When you give up who you are, you become who you could be.
"Knock at the door and Nothing will open to you, and will make you shine like the autumn sun, will make you rise up in heaven becoming nothing and turn you into everything"
"Forget about safety. Live where you're afraid. Destroy your reputation. Become known ".
"Do not be satisfied with stories about others. Become your own myth.
"Give your fire to life, and surround yourself with those who have the fire."
"Be the snow that melts. Wash yourself. "7. You do not have to be the whole scale, just be the first step
"As you walk on your way, it appears."8. When you want to do something, do it wholeheartedly.
"Half the measure does not bring you close to greatness. If you propose to find God, but then you stop for long periods on the road, you never get anywhere "
"Wherever you are and whatever you do, be in love."9. Good things come to an end for even better things to happen
"Do not get sad. Every piez is returning in another form. "10. The grave is the place where light enters you
"What hurts you blesses you. Dark is your light "
"When you are a ruin, there is hope for treasure"
"Suffering can be the garden of compassion. If you keep your heart open for everything, pain can become your ally in search of love and knowledge. "
"You have to hurt your heart until it opens."


11. Think Less. Feel more.
"Reason has no power in the expression of love."
"Spend your thoughts, do not let them obscure the moon's heart. Quit thinking. "
"Only from the heart can we reach heaven".12. Love deserves everything
"Play everything for love if you're really a human being. If not, leave the game. "
"Let your lover be mad and dreamy. Any waking man would worry that things would not work well. Let your lover be. "13. Change the world by changing yourself.
"Yesterday I was smarter, I thought I could change the world. Today I am wiser, so I change myself "14. We are made of love and love
"We are born of love, love is our mother."
"Your job is not to seek love, but to seek and overcome the barriers in thee that you have built against you."
"By love all that is bitter becomes sweet, by love all that copper becomes gold, by love all water becomes wine, through love all suffering becomes medicine"
"I have no companion outside of love, no beginning, no end. Soul shouts in me: Ignorant, release me! "15. Your soul is not part of this world, body yes
"When I die, I will go to angels, and when I die as an angel, I will become something you can not imagine"16. At the soul level we are all one
"All religions sing one song. Differences are just illusions and vanities. The sunlight looks different on this wall than on the other, and much differently on the other, but the light is all light "
"I'm not either East or West, there are no boundaries in my soul"17. Choose your life partner carefully
"Choose someone who does not score, who does not seek to be rich or is afraid to lose, who has no interest in his own personality: who is free"


18. True love transcends the material plane and even if the two bodies are separated, the souls will always be connected

"Separations are just for those who love their eyes. Those who love with heart and soul do not have such a separation. "
19. Quietness is the language of God

"Quietness is the language of God, everything else is a bad translation"

"Words are pretexts. The subtle connection attracts one another, not the words "

"Eloquence is quiet."

"Change your words, do not lift the tone. In the rain grow flowers, not under the sound of thunder "
20. Just living is not a suffix

"Do you think you're alive just because you breathe? Be ashamed that you are living so limited. Do not stand without Love, otherwise you will feel dead. You die in Love and live forever "
