Hello Rumi Tuesday

 

Summer

Love so needs to love

that it will endure almost anything,
even abuse,

 

just to flicker for a moment.
But the sky’s mouth is kind,

 

its song will never hurt you,
for I sing those words.

 

by Jalal id-din Rumi

 

The love that exists inside our hearts

is so strong, it never stops yearning.

No matter what happens in life

to dampen the flame of love inside the heart,

the love still yearns for itself.

The more love gets constricted inside,

the louder it cries out.

But the flame never goes out.

Love beats the heart, breathes the chest,

speaks every word and advances every footstep.

It waits for the oil lamp to pour its oil

and enliven the eternal flame once again.

Love is from the One,

placed inside the heart by the One,

to know Itself,

the Essence of the One.
