“He is a letter to everyone. You open it. It says, ‘Live!’”

“Let’s ask God to help us to self-control for one who lacks it, lacks his grace.”

“No mirror ever became iron again; No bread ever became wheat; No ripened grape ever became sour fruit. Mature yourself and be secure from a change for the worse. Become the light.”

~ Rumi from Rumi: Daylight

Mevlana Rumi: The great Islamic Persian poet and mystic.

If you’ve ever heard of Sufism or the Whirling Dervishes, then you’ve probably been exposed, at least in part, to some of Rumi’s teachings. Born in modern day Afghanistan in the 13th century, he was one of the greatest Sufi philosophers and was the inspiration for Sema, the “universal movement” practiced by the Whirling Dervishes.

If you haven’t had the chance to enjoy some of Rumi’s incredibly beautiful poetry before, you’re in for a treat. :)

Rumi lived his life in Konya, Turkey, which was, at the time, the capital of the dominant Western Seljuk Empire. Rumi was a Professor of Religion at Konya University and was respected as an incredibly mystical and spiritual man; in fact, he was known as the “spokesman for the religion of love in the language of the heart.”

Rumi’s poetry has been captured in a number of different collections. In all, one is exposed to the manner in which Rumi demonstrates the unbridled joy that comes from living life fully, while urging us always to put aside our fears and take the risk required to do so.

This is a useful book, although I found the excerpts too short. I might have misunderstood the purpose of the book and was looking for more full poems.
