„The human body and the universe
grew from this, not this
from the universe and the human body.“

—  Rumi
Context: This that we are now created the body, cell by cell, like bees building a honeycomb. The human body and the universe grew from this, not this from the universe and the human body. "This We Have Now" in Ch. 25 : Majesty. p. 262

„Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field. I will meet you there.“

—  Rumi
Context: Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I will meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about language, ideas, even the phrase each other doesn't make any sense. "The Great Wagon" Ch. 4 : Spring Giddiness, p. 36 Variant translations: Between wrongness and rightness there is a field. I will meet you there. As quoted in Counselling Psychology : Integration of Theory, Research and Supervised Practice (1998) by Petruska Clarkson Out beyond the world of ideas of wrong doing and right doing, there is a field. I will meet you there. As quoted in Lightning in a Bottle : Proven Lessons for Leading Change (2000) by David H. Baum Out beyond ideas of right and wrong doing, there is a field. I will meet you there. As quoted in Architects of Peace : Visions of Hope in Words and Images (2002) by Michael Collopy, p. 109 Out beyond ideas of rightdoing and wrongdoing There is a field. I will meet you there. Strategic Learning in a Knowledge Economy : Individual, Collective and Organizational Learning Processes (2000) by Robert L. Cross and Sam B. Israelit

„There is no worse sickness for the soul,
O you who are proud, than this pretense of perfection.“

—  Rumi
Context: There is no worse sickness for the soul, O you who are proud, than this pretense of perfection. The heart and eyes must bleed a lot before self-complacency falls away.

„This is what is signified by the words Anā l-Ḥaqq, "I am God." People imagine that it is a presumptuous claim, whereas it is really a presumptuous claim to say Ana 'l-'abd, "I am the slave of God"; and Anā l-Ḥaqq, "I am God" is an expression of great humility“

—  Rumi
Context: This is what is signified by the words Anā l-Ḥaqq, "I am God." People imagine that it is a presumptuous claim, whereas it is really a presumptuous claim to say Ana 'l-'abd, "I am the slave of God"; and Anā l-Ḥaqq, "I am God" is an expression of great humility. The man who says Ana 'l-'abd, "I am the servant of God" affirms two existences, his own and God's, but he that says Anā l-Ḥaqq, "I am God" has made himself non-existent and has given himself up and says "I am God", that is, "I am naught, He is all; there is no being but God's." This is the extreme of humility and self-abasement. Commenting on the famous expression of Mansur al-Hallaj, for which al-Hallaj was executed as a blasphemer, in The Mathnawí of Jalálu'ddín Rúmí, Vol. 4, part 7, edited by Reynold Alleyne Nicholson (1940) p. 248 Variant translation: People imagine that it is a presumptive claim, whereas it is really a presumptive claim to say "I am the slave of God"; and "I am God" is an expression of great humility. The man who says "I am the slave of God" affirms two existences, his own and God's, but he that says "I am God" has made himself non-existent and has given himself up and says "I am God", that is, "I am naught, He is all; there is no being but God's." This is the extreme of humility and self-abasement.

„My head is bursting
with the joy of the unknown.“

—  Rumi
Context: My head is bursting with the joy of the unknown. My heart is expanding a thousand fold. Every cell, taking wings, flies about the world. All seek separately the many faces of my Beloved.

„You knock at the door of Reality.“

—  Rumi
Context: You knock at the door of Reality. You shake your thought wings, loosen your shoulders, and open. "The Gift of Water" Ch. 18 : The Three Fish, p. 200

„Spring is Christ,
Raising martyred plants from their shrouds.“

—  Rumi
Context: Spring is Christ, Raising martyred plants from their shrouds. Their mouths open in gratitude, wanting to be kissed. The glow of the rose and the tulip means a lamp is inside. A leaf trembles. I tremble in the wind-beauty like silk from Turkestan. The censer fans into flame. This wind is the Holy Spirit. The trees are Mary. "Spring is Christ" in Ch. 4 : Spring Giddiness, p. 37

„When I have sacrificed my angel-soul,
I shall become what no mind e'er conceived.
Oh, let me not exist! for Non-existence
Proclaims in organ tones, To Him we shall return.“

—  Rumi
Context: I died as a mineral and became a plant, I died as plant and rose to animal, I died as animal and I was Man. Why should I fear? When was I less by dying? Yet once more I shall die as Man, to soar With angels blest; but even from angelhood I must pass on: all except God doth perish. When I have sacrificed my angel-soul, I shall become what no mind e'er conceived. Oh, let me not exist! for Non-existence Proclaims in organ tones, To Him we shall return. "I Died as a Mineral", as translated in The Mystics of Islam (1914) edited by Reynold Alleyne Nicholson, p. 125 Variant translation: Originally, you were clay. From being mineral, you became vegetable. From vegetable, you became animal, and from animal, man. During these periods man did not know where he was going, but he was being taken on a long journey nonetheless. And you have to go through a hundred different worlds yet. As quoted in Multimind (1986) by Robert Ornstein

„Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking.
Live in silence.“

—  Rumi
Context: Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking. Live in silence. Flow down and down in always widening rings of being. "A Community of the Spirit" in Ch. 1 : The Tavern, p. 2

„I am God's Lion, not the lion of passion....
I have no longing
except for the One.
When a wind of personal reaction comes,
I do not go along with it.“

—  Rumi
Context: I am God's Lion, not the lion of passion.... I have no longing except for the One. When a wind of personal reaction comes, I do not go along with it. There are many winds full of anger, and lust and greed. They move the rubbish around, but the solid mountain of our true nature stays where it's always been. "Ali in Battle" in Ch. 20 : In Baghdad dreaming of Cairo

„Drunkards vaunt their bravery when you speak of war.
But in the blaze of battle they scatter like mice.
I'm astonished by the man who wants purity
And yet trembles when the harshness of polishing begin...
When a man beats a carpet again and again
It's not the carpet he's attacking, but the dirt in it.“

—  Rumi
Context: "There's no courage", The Prophet said, "before the war has begun." Drunkards vaunt their bravery when you speak of war. But in the blaze of battle they scatter like mice. I'm astonished by the man who wants purity And yet trembles when the harshness of polishing begin... When a man beats a carpet again and again It's not the carpet he's attacking, but the dirt in it. Mathnawi

„Little by little, wean yourself. This is the gist of what I have to say.“

—  Rumi
Context: Little by little, wean yourself. This is the gist of what I have to say. From an embryo, whose nourishment comes in the blood, move to an infant drinking milk, to a child on solid food, to a searcher after wisdom, to a hunter of more invisible game. Think how it is to have a conversation with an embryo. You might say, "The world outside is vast and intricate. There are wheatfields and mountain passes, and orchards in bloom. At night there are millions of galaxies, and in sunlight the beauty of friends dancing at a wedding." You ask the embryo why he, or she, stays cooped up in the dark with eyes closed. Listen to the answer. There is no "other world." I only know what I've experienced. You must be hallucinating. As quoted in The Enlightened Mind (1991), edited by Stephen Mitchell

„Who looks out with my eyes? What is the soul?
I cannot stop asking.“

—  Rumi
Context: Who looks out with my eyes? What is the soul? I cannot stop asking. If I could taste one sip of an answer, I could break out of this prison for drunks. I didn't come here of my own accord, and I can't leave that way. Whoever brought me here, will have to take me home. "Who says words with my mouth?" in Ch. 1 : The Tavern, p. 2

„I can't stop pointing
to the beauty.“

—  Rumi
Context: I can't stop pointing to the beauty.Every moment and place says, "Put this design in your carpet!" "Put This Design in Your Carpet" Ch. 11 : Union
