Patience does not mean to passively endure. It means to be farsighted enough to trust the end result of a process. It means to look at the thorn and see the rose, to look at the night and see the dawn.
Impatience means to be shortsighted as to not be able to see the outcome. The lovers of God never run out of patience, for they know that time is needed for the crescent moon to become full.
Breathtaking. Entrancing. Exhilarating
Lovingly presenting the short video ‘Introduction to Hu, The Zikr’ with the soul-stirring narration by beloved Anandmurti Gurumaa. It features the ecstatic poetry of Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi coupled with captivating music that truly enthralls. Watch, awaken, and don’t go back to sleep.
Rejoice watching it!
I want to see you.
Know your voice.
Recognize you when you
first come ‘round the corner.
Sense your scent when I come
into a room you’ve just left.
Know the lift of your heel,
the glide of your foot.
Become familiar with the way
you purse your lips
then let them part,
just the slightest bit,
when I lean in to your space
and kiss you.
I want to know the joy
of how you whisper…
When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.” Rumi
Those who don’t feel this love pulling them like a river, those who don’t drink dawn like a cup of spring-water or take in sunset like supper,
those who don’t want to change, let them sleep.
This love is beyond the study of theology, that old trickery and hypocrisy.
If you want to improve your mind that way, sleep on.
I’ve given up on my brain, I’ve torn the cloth to shreds and thrown it away. If you’re not completely naked, wrap your beautiful robe of words around you, and sleep.
