Now give yourself

                     a smile.

                               What is

                                   the worth of a diamond,

                                             if it doesn’t smile.

                                                    ~ Rumi ~ 💜


"The Invitation" by Oriah Mountain Dreamer

“There are lovers content with longing.
I’m not one of them.”

I came across the above Rumi quote, for the first time, today. I love it and I think it could serve as an epigram for another poem I recently came across called “The Invitation” by a Canadian poet, I’d never heard of before, named Oriah Mountain Dreamer. 1.034 kata lagi

Quote Of The Day

Walk Out of Your House like a Shepherd

Be a lamp or a lifeboat or a ladder. Help someone’s soul heal. Walk out of your house like a shepherd.

– Jalaluddin Rumi


Rūmī : Your Task

Yayoi Kusama, I’m Here, But Nothing…

“Your task is not to seek love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” 12 kata lagi

Hate stalks us all, when it finds you look around for the light.

“Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.”


The corollary to the above quote might be ‘Those we hate don’t just come along, they’ve been in us all along’. 315 kata lagi

New Seeds

Its good to leave each day behind,

like flowing water,

free of sadness.

Yesterday is gone

and its tale told.

Today new seeds are growing.

~ Rumi


He's free

Take someone who doesn’t keep score,
who’s not looking to be richer, or afraid of losing, who has not the slightest interest even
in his own personality: he’s free.
