Daily Rumi
 
     

The beloved 13th century mystic and poet Jelalludin Rumi is one of the most widely quoted and loved spiritual teachers. The original inspiration to create the Winter Feast for the Soul was from a Rumi quote. His words can be enjoyed on many levels, even in translation, and during the Winter Feast you may find daily inspiration here.

  1. “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?”
    —Rumi
  2. “Respond to every call that excites your spirit.”
    —Rumi
  3. “Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.”
    —Rumi
  4. “The wound is the place where the Light enters you.”
    —Rumi
  5. “What you seek is seeking you.”
    —Rumi
  6. “Try not to resist the changes that come your way. Instead let life live through you. And do not worry that your life is turning upside down. How do you know that the side you are used to is better than the one to come?”
    —Rumi
  7. “Don’t grieve. Anything you lose comes round in another form.”
    —Rumi
  8. “If you are irritated by every rub, how will your mirror be polished?”
    —Rumi
  9. “Christian, Jew, Muslim, shaman, Zoroastrian, stone, ground, mountain, river, each has a secret way of being with the mystery, unique and not to be judged”
    —Rumi
  10. “Dance, when you're broken open. Dance, if you've torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you're perfectly free.”
    —Rumi
  11. “Knock, And He'll open the door
    Vanish, And He'll make you shine like the sun
    Fall, And He'll raise you to the heavens
    Become nothing, And He'll turn you into everything.”
    —Rumi
  12. “My soul is from elsewhere, I'm sure of that, and I intend to end up there.”
    —Rumi
  13. “Sit quietly and listen for a voice that will say, "Be more silent." As that happens, your soul starts to revive.”
    —Rumi
  14. “Silence is the language of god, all else is poor translation.”
    —Rumi
  15. “Everything in the universe is within you. Ask all from yourself.”
    —Rumi
  16. “Let yourself be drawn by the stronger pull of that which you truly love.”
    —Rumi
  17. “Love is the bridge between you and everything.”
    —Rumi
  18. “I closed my mouth and spoke to you in a hundred silent ways.”
    —Rumi
  19. “You have to keep breaking your heart until it opens.”
    —Rumi
  20. “Try something different. Surrender.”
    —Rumi

  21. “Why should I stay at the bottom of a well when a strong rope is in my hand?”
    —Rumi
  22. “Limp along until your legs are spent,
    and you fall flat and your energy is drained.
    Then the grace of the Divine will lift you.”
    —Rumi
  23. “The only lasting beauty is the beauty of the heart”
    —Rumi
  24. “When you lose all sense of self, the bonds of a thousand chains will vanish.
    Lose yourself completely, return to the root of the root of your own soul.”
    —Rumi
  25. “This place is a dream. Only a sleeper considers it real. Then death comes like dawn, and you wake up laughing at what you thought was your grief.”
    —Rumi
  26. “You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop.”
    —Rumi
  27. “Love is the whole thing.
    We are only pieces.”
    —Rumi
  28. “Only from the heart can you touch the sky.”
    —Rumi
  29. “Into this new love, die
    your way begins on the other side
    become the sky
    take an axe to the prison wall,
    escape
    walk out like someone suddenly born into color
    do it now”
    —Rumi
  30. “Flow down and down in always widening rings of being.”
    —Rumi
  31. “A wealth you cannot imagine
    flows through you.
    Do not consider what strangers say.
    Be secluded in your secret heart-house,
    that bowl of silence.”
    —Rumi
  32. “Sometimes you hear a voice through the door calling you... This turning toward what you deeply love saves you.”
    —Rumi
  33. “Peaceful is the one who's not concerned with having more or less.
    Unbound by name and fame, he is free from sorrow from the world and mostly from himself.”
    —Rumi
  34. “Never think that you are worthless.
    God has paid an enormous amount for you,
    and the gifts keep arriving.”
    —Rumi
  35. “Let the waters settle and you will see the moon and the stars mirrored in your own being.”
    —Rumi
  36. “I made an oath to myself:
    as long as I live
    as long as my soul remains in this body
    I won't deviate from the right way
    but later I looked to my left and then to my right
    and I saw our beloved everywhere
    how could I make a wrong turn?”
    —Rumi
  37. “We are the mirror as well as the face in it.
    We are tasting the taste this minute of eternity. We are pain
    and what cures pain, both. We are
    the sweet cold water and the jar that pours.”
    —Rumi
  38. “Get yourself out of the way, and let joy have more space.”
    —Rumi
  39. “The art of knowing is knowing what to ignore”
    —Rumi
  40. “On a day when the wind is perfect,
    the sail just needs to open and the world is full of beauty.
    Today is such a day.”
    —Rumi
