Rumi in Love

When I touch the ground in prayer
I have no other purpose
but You.
all else i speak about
gardens, flowers, nightingales, whirling
is only an excuse.

understanding poetry is usually a lost cause for me, I'm very much more a logic, methodical guy. This however is self-explanatory.

i remember this one, kimmi

makes my mind whirl, its so beautiful!

the ultimate Love..

thats right, SG, explanatory it is, but words still fall short of the absoluteness of the Love felt/aspired to, inshallah.. anon: this is the Ultimate, so true.. and any other form of love no matter its intensity and sincerity, pales in comparison..

wen i touch my forehead to the ground its the highest form of humility because i Love Him with every fibre of my being..

i am because He Is.

if only we could cut ourselves loose from ourselves and feel it - just once.

sometimes, the Self is a just a little paperboat tethered to the burdened, self-conscious, socialself.. its easier said but oh-so-freeing to untie that knot of derision and truly feel the glory of this Love.. it isnt too far away i might add. just dig deep into ur heart and He will reveal to you!

the danger to disappointment is in assuming that any form of human love might live up to this Higher Love :)

rumi said it, and he meant it.
we say the words, but mean nothing!
