Rumi Poems Volume 1 – Candle in your heart
My first recording of some of my favorite Rumi poems
There is a candle in your heart, ready to be kindled. There is a void in your soul, ready to be filled. You feel it, don’t you?
Grief can be the garden of compassion. If you keep your heart open through everything, your pain can become your greatest ally in your life’s search for love and wisdom.
Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. Because for those who love with their heart & soul. There is no such thing as separation.
Do not feel lonely, the entire universe is inside you. Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion. Set your life on fire. Seek those who fan your flames.
Like a Life-Giving Sun
You could become a great horseman
And help to free yourself and this world
Though only if you and prayer become sweet Lovers.
It is a naive man who thinks we are not Engaged in a fierce battle,
For I see and hear brave foot soldiers All around me going mad,
Falling on the ground in excruciating pain.
You could become a victorious horseman
And carry your heart through this world.
Like a life-giving sun.
Though only if you and God become sweet Lovers!
A guide has entered this life in silence. His message is only heard in silence. Take a sip of his precious wine and lose yourself. Don’t insult the greatness of his love, For he helps all those who suffer, in silence.
Polish the mirror between the breaths. Go with him, beyond words. He knows your every deed. He is the one who moves the wheel of heaven, in silence. Every thought is buried in your heart; He will reveal them one by one, in silence. Turn each of your thoughts into a bird And let them fly to the other world. One is an owl, one is a falcon, one is a crow. Each one is different from the others But they are all the same in silence.
To see the Moon that cannot be seen Turn your eyes inward and look at yourself, in silence. In this world and the next, Don’t talk about this and that; Let him show you everything, shining as one . . . in silence.
