Romancing Mystic Love Of Rumi: By Kamaljeet Grewal

Rumi: Was a superstar while he was alive and he has been admired. Loved and cherished in the East ever since and in the West and globally since the 1990s. Rumi -The great Poet of mystic Love, of the 13th century has composed his poems and prose works in Persian. Rumi was the most famous personality in the region and his fame and unique mystic poetic style full of Romance had already spread 3,000 miles away to India during his lifetime.
Mevlana Rumi-The Sufi poet of Mystic Love

It's impossible today to imagine how popular poetry of Love with a mix of mystic was at the time of Rumi. It was the pop music of its time. Rumi is sometimes called the Master of Mystic Love because the Sufi path strives for ecstatic ego and annihilation in the fires of Divine Love.

Mevlana Rumi's Shrine in Konia--Turkey
His Sufi poems and works have the real essence of union with Beloved God, " the primal - The God", the concept of tauhid (Indivisible Oneness of God).

Rumi's unique style of poetry became all the rage at the time. He blended romantic imagery of classical Persian poetry that features a beautiful female companion, a cup of wine, a flower garden, moon lit night and candles burning with quotes.

In his poems he added mystical references, direct emotional expressions, issues involving maturity and growth of the soul and even anecdotes about daily life.There are four major themes that run in his Sufi words: Heartache, Drunkenness, Disagreeable Lover and Aloneness.

Feel the romance that Rumi has captured here so beautifully.
“Your eyelashes will write on my heart
The poem that could never come from the pen of a poet.” 

Translation is an art but to explain the poem in simple words, expressing what the poet wants to convey is a science.It is difficult to follow in depth the message and spirit of Rumi's poems, based only on translations.

Because I cannot sleep 
I make music at night .

Seekers and Lovers are creative by nature!
The stillness of the night...
When scattered emotions are gathered...
And are deeply felt and embraced by the loving heart.
The night becomes a catalyst!

It's deep felt feelings...Yearnings...Longings..
Desires...All culminate to a positive and beautiful outburst:
The most melodious and soothing Music springs forth
That soothes...Calms and balms...The burning fires of separation from the Beloved beloved!

Music is the wine of love...The whispers of the soul are drowned in the cacophony of confusion and din of the day.
But night provides the silence for the soul to display its abilities and divine music is born!
Soul is the origin of soulful music!

I feel, when u are awake at night, n even, if u r sighing for ur mortal beloved, u r so much closer to God.....ishq khuda se mila deta hai.. love takes you to God...u cry n u weep n you sing...n you dance....twist n turn...n cry in estacy of pain, o Lord, may my beloved be happy n well, o alighty, let me hear from him, o good, bring him to me...or take me to my beloved...we talk to we look for our beloved...just a thought

The bonds are felt stronger in the silence of night..when the mind is shut off from cares and responsibilities of the day ...and in this calm state music flows spontaneously from the depths of the soul !

Drink all your passion and be a disgrace.
Close both eyes to see with the other eye.
Open your hands if you want to be held.

You have to move and make sincere efforts to reach the Beloved.
He has blessed you with this beautiful life, movement, will and a mind...Along with a feeling heart and eternal soul.
You have come to this world with such treasures...
Use it judiciously...

Rumi guides...Love with extreme passion .without thinking of others verdict .This Love is between you and your Beloved...Do not allow anyone to build a wall by his criticism...

When in deep Love with your Lord ...close yourself from the world outside by closing your worldly eyes and allowing your inner eye to behold His light ...
Throw your hands up to him total acceptance and surrender. facilitate yourself to be held in His embrace...

It is only in this state when you offer yourself holistically at His altar...Does that ultimate merge with the beloved, take place.
Shun the superficiality ...offer yourself completely to Him...

Highly mystical n inspirational words...True loving demands perseverance n consistency in all our actions n deeds so as reach destination.... The right course is persistency despite hurdles n challenges.....enduring pains with courage n building strong connection with the beloved (Allahswt)

Love is fearless
In the midst of
the sea of fear !

Love is bold and Beautiful!
Love in its natural form is docile..calm ..and soft ...but if it is challenged can become the bravest..Fearless warrior!
It will never accept defeat!
Love is pure and genuine ...and that which is untainted by selfish a a WINNER...all the way!

Love is like a gushing stream down the mountainside...unstoppsble ..cuts through the steep cliffs ...unharnessed !
Do not ever try to come in the way of Love!
Allow Love to flow in its melodious fluidity!
And see it spreading fragrance...all the way!

Requires balance . . . is not a matter of intensity but a balance and order and rhythm and harmony. Fortunate , indeed , is the man who takes exactly the right measure of himself and holds a just balance between what he can acquire and what he can love . . . don't loose your balance in the processing of loving , it's better to rise from love as from a banquet -- neither thirsty nor drunken.

 Love itself is bravest and purest... Love can make its way through all the troubles... love crosses all the hurdles and reaches its destination... It's fragrance make u feel it... Even if it is miles away...

Rumi is only sending us a Reminder..  We know that Fear is the weapon of Ego.. a disaster in life. Cheers to Love, Faith and Hope. Let´s focus in the colourful essence of LOVE!

universal truth.....God, Himself is love Love is everything....true n divine love never get fear of just keep going on where time never ends....boundlessly...

Love is usually tender, gentle and calm but when it is challenged or provoked it is like a storm in an ocean- it cannot be controlled, calmed or defeated. It breaks all boundaries and overcomes all hurdles. The power of love should never be underestimated.

What a joy 
to travel 
the way of the heart.

The heart and its positive functions provide joy and happiness to the total being ...his mind...Soul ...and the moments that he goes through!

Rumi , the great seeker ...always gave importance to pursue actions and paths the destination of which is ultimate joy !

Little joys of life like pleasant surprises ...worldly relations blossoming beings entering our lives ...successes ...travels ...all these are sources of joys.

Then we move to a higher plane ...where spiritual pursuits ..become important ...and the seeker heart now aspires a path to take him to this enlightened 

I am blooming from the wound ...
...where I once bled.

Wounds and bruises that life gives us are 
undeniably painful !
Yet the lessons that they leave behind for us, are wise ..sagacious and astute ..that no book or school can ever teach !

“The wound is the place, where the light enters ' another quote of Rumi stresses the same!

Friends...wounds we all have had in different forms...but these have left us enlightened and discerning...

Diamond is the result when a stone is brought under high pressure and the flower which is result when a seed is sowed in dust the pearl that is the result when a drip of water is stored in darkness ...similarly a thought that undergoes intense pondering.

When a star shines, it consumes its very being marvellous is the result of comfort....yes when a thought is matured and is decorated with experience of odds and even...It becomes wisdom , when a wound is deep and is cared lovingly then it blooms ....reflects light .

True that.... the universe works for us not against us!!! If a rough patch/troubles cross our path and after intial panic if we pause and analyze m so damn sure that we DO find a reason which makes us understand for our own betterment... cuz God cannot talk to us therefore, he opts for diff ways to communicate wd us by giving happiness or sorrows!!!!

The wounds maybe healed but the scars remained, that remind us always of the pain we went thru, getting over it is real hard but the fruit of it is sweet and triumphant.
Time heals every wound in our lives but don't dwell on the past your story can't be erased but your future is yet to be written make the most of what's going to happen instead of worrying what you can't change enjoy the moments in which you could be happy. What the world needs, is Love.What the world no longer needs, is the lack of Love.
How to achieve this?
All our brain, thoughts, movements, behavior, and especially, feelings
create our universe from inside out.
This is it!
Love starts always in the heart.
No other option.
Peace also.
Why do we create and the more, why do we accept the absence of peace?
Why do we tolerate and even more, put people with obviously no inner peace and Love inside on the top of our nations of the world, or as leaders of our companies that rule the world in their own way of gaining profit above all?
Why don´t we support the ones that dare to resist and go for the Good?
Why don´t we take a risk and reveal our own power of creating consciously?

Inner Truth of highest purity.
Who dares to take all his veils from the wounded heart inside and goes through the responsibility of being the source of all the lack of Love inside oneself as Alpha – Sender to Omega? What comes around goes around.
This is all about.
Still one is untrue to oneself.
The more, the less.
Still one resonates to this unwanted - so choose to let go and resonate higher in Love, peace, joy, compassion, kindness, forgive. .
Strive for your true heart purpose and take nothing for granted.
What is given, may be taken.
Just like that.
And Vice versa!
This is the gift.
What was lost shall easily be given back!
Go for it.
Be True.
Be You.
No more, no less.
Just Love.
From within.
We are.....
You are.....
I am Loved

All wounds bleed, but eventually heal. They are painful but in the process of healing, they teach us about life. We tend to mature and getter wiser after a difficult period of pain or grief. 

Life wound reshape us...This wounds with time become points of strength in our life...No need to be shame of them because they show that we are a warriors are the only ones who have wounds so be proud of yourself and don't worry.
