Quotes by Rumi
Love is a mirror.
In it you see nothing but your reflection.
You see nothing except your real face.
If everything around you seems dark, look again.
You may be the light.
This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all! Even if they are a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still, treat each guest honorably. He may be clearing you out for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice. meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.
Be grateful for whatever comes. because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.
Be like the sun for grace and mercy.
Be like the night to cover others faults.
Be like running water for generosity.
Be like death for rage and anger.
Be like the earth for modesty.
Appear as you are.
Be as you appear.
