Hi there, Clark here. Today we’ll be appreciating more of the wisdom of Rumi, because his quotes are just so profound and ahead of his time. Remember, he was living in the 13th century as you may have read in 3 Most Profound Rumi Quotes and Sayings. That’s long before the existence of internet or even the widespread publication of books, so how did he managed to think of and say such profound things? So again, below I am going to look at only THREE Rumi quotes, so that you can take the time to appreciate each one more deeply.
“As you start to walk on the way, the way appears.”
Dream as big as you can. That’s what I understand about this saying. You don’t have to know how you are going to achieve something. Just hold steady to the belief that you already have it, and as you begin your journey, the details will fill in. Your next step will be revealed to you, and then the next, and then the next.
We can only see how something is going to turn out by looking backwards. Hindsight is always 20/20. If you truly desire something, then go for it. It is kind of like driving. You know where you want to go, but you’ve never been there before and right now you can only see what’s directly in front of you. But you still believe enough to start your journey. You trust that as you follow your GPS you will eventually, but surely, reach your destination.
Of course, knowing how the universe works and consciously lining up with its laws will accelerate your getting there. To help you out further, you can read How to make believe – Manifesting the life I want, as well as Meditate and Manifest.
“We carry inside us the wonders we seek outside us.”
Whatever you want to be, do, have or experience, the way to it starts within you. You can’t control external circumstances, at least not to a great extent, for everybody is looking out for themselves.
But if you can “be there” inside you, then the wonders you seek will also appear to you externally.
How can you “be there” internally? What happens when we travel to a place and see wonderful sights, when we hear wonderful words being spoken, when we have wonderful things, when we experience something wonderful? We feel wonder inside us, isn’t it? So feel the wonder of this life. Feel the wonder of having your loved ones, of nature, of emotions, of how good it feels to be joyful, excited, appreciative, loving. Mark my words, when you feel the wonder within you, you will also see wonders appearing in your life in almost no time at all.
“You have to keep breaking your heart until it opens.”
This has to be one of my favorite quotes of all time, it’s just so unbelievably romantic. For those who have had their heart broken, or torn to pieces before, do not stop loving. We are here to love, to experience joy, to experience this physical life in all its glory. So don’t let anyone ever stop you from loving.
Take A Moment, Close Your Eyes, and Savor…
Because these are real gems from someone who lived many centuries ago. People during that time probably have no idea what the heck he was talking about. But now, with so much personal development materials available to us, we can sort of make out what he meant. I seriously think we are in the golden age of understanding the laws of the universe and how to align ourselves with them. Before I end today’s article, please do not hesitate to leave your questions and comments below. Till the next time, cheerio!
