Rumi Volume 2 – I am your only Friend

Recording of some of my favorite Rumi poems.

Didn’t I tell you
Do not leave me for I am your only Friend,
I am the spring of life.
Even if you leave in anger for thousands of years
You will come back to me for I am your goal and your end.
Didn’t I tell you
not to be seduced by this colorful world
for I am the Ultimate Painter.
Didn’t I tell you
you are a fish do not go to dry land
for I am the deep Sea.
Didn’t I tell you
not to fall in the net like birds
for I am your wings and the power of light.
Didn’t I tell you
not to let them change your mind and turn you to ice
for I am your fire and warmth.
Didn’t I tell you
they will corrupt you and make you forget
that I am the Spring of all virtues.
Didn’t I tell you
not to question my actions
for everything falls into order, I am the Creator.
Didn’t I tell you
your heart can guide you home
because it knows that I am your Master.

There is a force within Which gives you life– Seek that.
In your body Lies a priceless gem– Seek that.
O wandering sufi, If you want to find The greatest treasure.
Don’t look outside, Look inside, and seek That.

Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.

Oh my Beloved! Take me, Liberate my soul, Fill me with your love, And release me from both worlds. If I set my heart on anything but you, Oh fire, burn me from inside! Oh my Beloved Take away what I want, Take away what I do, Take away everything that takes me from you.

The wound is the place where the light enters you.

You have to keep breaking your heart until it opens.

These pains you feel are messengers. Listen to them.

Know that one day your pain will become your cure.

What hurts you, blesses you. Darkness is your candle.

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.

Your heart is the size of an ocean. Go find yourself in its hidden depths.

Wherever you are, and whatever you do, be in love.

I prayed for change so I changed my mind.
I prayed for guidance and learned to trust myself.
I prayed for happiness and realized I am not my ego.
I prayed for peace and learned to accept others unconditionally.
I prayed for abundance and realized my doubt kept it out.
I prayed for wealth and realized it is my health.
I prayed for a miracle and I realized I am the miracle.
I prayed for a soul mate and realized I am with the One.
I prayed for love and realized it is always knocking, but I have to allow it in. “

Whenever you are alone, remind yourself that God has sent everyone else away so that there is only you and Him.
