A Little Rumi for Ya

“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”

“Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.”

“What you seek is seeking you.”

“If you are irritated by every rub, how will your mirror be polished?”

‘Forget safety. Live where you fear to live. Destroy your reputation. Be notorious.”

“Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.”

“Set your life on fire. Seek those who fan your flames.”


I hope we’re fanning your flames a little today!
