    Default Rumi so drunk, secret flying out of his lips

    If there is any lover in the world, 0 Muslim, it is I.
    If there is any believer, infidel, or Christian hermit, it is I.
    The wine, the cup-bearer, the musician, the instrument and the music,
    The beloved, the candle, the liquor and the inebriation, it is I.
    The seventy-two religious sects in the world
    Do not really exist;
    I swear by God every religious sect-it is I.
    Earth, air, water and fire: do you know what they are?
    Earth, air, water and fire-and the soul as well; it is I
    Truth and falsehood, good and evil, pleasure and suffering, beginning and end,
    Knowledge, learning, asceticism, devotion and faith-it is I.
    Be assured that the fire of hell and its flames,
    Paradise, Eden and the angels of heaven-it is I.
    Heaven and earth and all they hold: angels, demons, and men - it is I.

    Don't laugh like children! You do not understand my state.
    Read a chapter from me, unfold a secret from her [the creative Force]:
    I am drunk of that wine forbidden by the lawgivers;
    I am drunk of the wine of oneness; I am free of color and smell.
    I am oblivious to this place; my mind is elsewhere;

    O Thou Soul who art free of "we" and "I,"
    0 Thou who art the subtle Essence of the souls of men and women,
    When a man or woman unites with Thee, Thou art that One; when their individuality is obliterated, Thou alone art.
    Thou didst contrive this "I" and this "we" only so that Thou mightest play the game of worship with Thyself,
    So that all "Is" and "Thous" should become one Soul, immersed at last in the one Beloved.

    know that the World of Unity lies in the other direction from the senses. If you want Oneness, go in that direction!

    What can I say about the stations of those who have attained union except that they are infinite, while the stations of the travelers have a limit? The limit of the travelers is union. But what could be the limit of those in union? -- that is, that union which cannot be marred by separation. No ripe grape ever again becomes green, and no mature fruit ever again becomes raw

    How could the rays of God's light fit into the heart? Yet when you search you will find it there, not from the point of view of containment such that it could be said that the light is in that place. You will find it through that place …

    All the hopes, desires, loves, and affections that people have for different things -- fathers, mothers, friends, heavens, the earth, gardens, palaces, sciences, works, food, drink -- the saint knows that these are desires for God and all those things are veils. When men leave this world and see the King without these veils, then they will know that all were veils and coverings, that the object of their desire was in reality that One Thing… They will see all things face to face.

    In a human being is such a love, a pain, an itch, a desire that, even if he were to possess a hundred thousand worlds, he would not rest or find peace. People work variously at all sorts of callings, crafts, and professions, and they learn astrology and medicine, and so forth, buth they are not at peace because what they are seeking cannot be found. The beloved is called dilaram because the heart finds peace through the beloved. How then can it find peace through anything else?

    Now some men have followed the intellect to such an extent that they have become totally angels and sheer light. They are the prophets and saints…

    In some men sensuality has dominated their intellects, so that they have totally assumed the properties of animals.

    And some men have remained struggling. They are that group who feel inside themselves a suffering, a pain, a distress, a longing. They are not satisfied with their lives. These are the believers. The saints are waiting to bring the believers into their own houses and make them like themselves. And the satans are also waiting to drag them down toward themselves to the lowest of the low (Koran 95:5).

    Man is called a rational animal; therefore, he is two things. What feeds his animality in this world is passion and desire; but the food for his essential part is knowledge, wisdom and the vision of God. Man's animal nature avoids the Real, and his human nature flies from this world. One of you is an unbeliever, and another of you is a believer. (Koran 64:2).

    Intellect is good and desirable to the extent it brings you to the King's door. Once you have reached His door, then divorce the intellect! From this time on, the intellect will be to your loss and a brigand. When you reach Him, entrust yourself to Him! You have no business with the how and the wherefore. Know that the intellect's cleverness all belongs to the vestibule. Even if it possesses the knowledge of Plato, it is still outside of the palace.

    You seek knowledge from books. What a shame! …
    You are an ocean of knowledge hidden in a dew drop…

    Someone was saying: "I have studied so many branches of knowledge and mastered so many concepts; yet I still do not know which concept in man will abide forever. I have not discovered it yet."

    If it could be known by means of words, there would be no need for the annihilation of individual existence or for so much suffering. You must strive to rid yourself of your own individuation before you can know that thing which will remain.

    wonder from these thousand of "me's",
    which one am I?
    Listen to my cry, do not drown my voice
    I am completely filled with the thought of you.
    Don't lay broken glass on my path
    I will crush it into dust.
    I am nothing, just a mirror in the palm of your hand,
    reflecting your kindness, your sadness, your anger.
    If you were a blade of grass or a tiny flower
    I will pitch my tent in your shadow.
    Only your presence revives my withered heart.
    You are the candle that lights the whole world
    and I am an empty vessel for your light.

    Inside this new love, die.
    Your way begins on the other side.
    Become the sky.
    Take an axe to the prison wall.
    Escape.
    Walk out like someone suddenly born into color.
    Do it now.
    You're covered with a thick cloud.
    Slide out the side. Die,
    and be quiet. Quiteness is the surest sign
    that you've died.
    Your old live was a frantic running
    from silence.

    The speechless full moon
    comes out now.

    oh! Supreme Lover!
    Let me leave aside my worries.
    The flowers are blooming
    with the exultation of your Spirit.

    By Allah!
    I long to escape the prison of my ego
    and lose myself
    in the mountains and the desert.

    These sad and lonely people tire me.
    I long to revel in the drunken frenzy of your love
    and feel the strength of Rustam in my hands.

    I'm sick of mortal kings.
    I long to see your light.
    With lamps in hand
    the sheikhs and mullahs roam
    the dark alleys of these towns
    not finding what they seek.

    You are the Essence of the Essence,
    The intoxication of Love.
    I long to sing your praises
    but stand mute
    with the agony of wishing in my heart.

    My, soul said:
    They brought me to God's workshop,
    Where all things take form, and I flew.
    Before this form of mine
    even took shape-I flew and I flew.
    And when I could fly no longer
    They dragged me into this form,
    and locked me into this house,
    of water and clay.

    The Lover is ever drunk with love;
    He is free,
    He is mad,
    He dances with ecstasy and delight.
    Caught by our own thoughts, we worry about every little thing,
    But once we get drunk on that love,
    Whatever will be, will be.

    When you dance, the whole universe dances.
    What wonder!
    I've looked, and now I cannot look away.
    Take me, or do not take me, both are the same
    As long as there is life in this body, I am your servant.

    Love came and it made me empty.
    Love came and it filled me with the Beloved. It became the blood in my body,
    It became my arms and my legs. It became everything!
    Now all I have is a name, the rest belongs to the Beloved.

    Someone asked what there was that was superior to prayer. One answer is that "the soul" of prayer is better than prayer. The second answer is that faith is better than prayer.
    Prayer consists of five-times-a-day performance, whereas faith is continuous. Prayer can be dropped for a valid excuse and may be postponed by license; faith cannot be dropped for any excuse and may not be postponed by license. Again, faith without prayer is beneficial, whereas prayer without faith confers no benefit.

    Wisdom is like the rain. Its source is unlimited, but it comes down according to the season. Grocers put sugar in a bag, but their supply of sugar is not the amount in the bag. When you come to a grocer, he has sugar in abundance. But he sees how much money you have brought and gives accordingly.
    Your currency on this Path is resolution and faith, and you are taught according to your resolution and faith. When you come seeking sugar, they examine your bag to see what its capacity is; then they measure out accordingly.
