Maulana's Love Lessons

Fall in Love in such a way
that it frees you
from any


God turns you from one feeling to another
And teaches you by means of opposites
So that you will have two wings to fly
Not one.


Reason is powerless
in the expression of Love.
Love alone is capable of revealing
the truth of Love and being a
Lover. The way of our prophets is
the way of Truth. If you want to live,
die in Love; die in Love if you
want to remain alive.


In truth everything and everyone
Is a shadow of the Beloved
And our seeking is His seeking
And our words are His words...
We search for Him here and there
While looking right at Him.
Sitting by His side, we ask:
'O Beloved, where is the Beloved?'


My Beloved, do not let anger estrange my heart
be generous, invite me to Your feast.
Let no one be deprived of the joy
of Your company.

Maulana Jalaluddin Rumi
