Two Wonderful Rumi Quotes on LIFE

Hello there, Clark here. Continuing on from my previous Rumi article: The Divine Wisdom of Rumi, here are two MORE wonderful, absolutely wonderful, Rumi quotes on life. When I wrote my first Rumi article, I didn’t know that this would become a series of articles. But his quotes are so deep that I have to do them justice by dissecting more of them on this site, and lead you readers on a journey to appreciate them.

“Gratitude is the wine for the soul. Go on, get drunk!”

Gratitude and appreciation has long been touted as a miracle worker by personal development teachers worldwide and through the years. How it works is like this: you feel gratitude in your heart for everything. You try to see things from a gratitude perspective. And you feel grateful for the life that you dream of, as if you are already living that kind of life. And then you see your life becoming more and more incredible with each passing day.

When I first heard about this, it kind of felt to me like accepting all the injustices of the world. Everyone can do whatever they want and I’m supposed to be grateful for it!?? So I can also do bad things and others should be grateful to me yeah?

But now I understand that it does not mean that. In every moment, everyone is attracting into their lives what they give out on a feeling level. So when you are grateful, you would start to attract less of those people who made you feel ungrateful. You would find yourself, through a series of seemingly coincidental events, spending less time with them. Or you would begin to look at things a little differently. Something that bugged you in the past might no longer matter so much.

And those people who wronged you in the past? They will attract what they sent out into the universe. Although it is up for debate whether they really did wrong you, for everyone is just looking out for themselves all the time.

“Whenever you are alone, remind yourself that God has sent everyone else away so that there is only you and Him.”

I think there could be many interpretations of this. But the one I’m on currently, the one that’s in my head today (that’s right, my interpretations could be different on different days), is that this quote reminds me to meditate. When I find myself stuck at home, or feeling lonely without a partner, this quote makes me realize that this is my opportunity to meditate, or delve into whatever self-help practices that I’m on that week.

All that you could ever want, you can obtain through meditation (it is said), that’s why I talk about meditation a lot on this website. Because meditation brings your state of being closer to who you really are, and if you want to know more please feel free to read: Meditate and Manifest

Savor These Quotes, My Friend…

For (at least to me) they are real gems. On “bad days” they gave me the push to continue my meditation and other self-help practices that I have promised myself to do. And on good days, they inspired me even more to keep on studying and practicing. As always, let me know what you think in the comment box below, and I’ll see you in the next one!

  1. I must say I haven’t heard of Rumi before I read your post, but I have heard a lot about the concept of gratitude lately. I love the quotes that you have provided, especially the first one. Which is your favorite?

    I always try this exercise when I wake up in the morning. I close my eyes and think of ten things that I am grateful for in my life. Over time this has changed my perspective of things a lot, as I realize that I have enough and I don’t need anything more as far as material things is concerned to make me happy. It also made me realize how lucky I am as others have so little.

    • I love quite a lot of his quotes, so it’s really quite difficult for me to pinpoint one favorite.

      If there is one thing I can add to your comment, it’s that don’t look at other people as having little, see them as having the potential to be abundant as well, which is true. Because the universe provides enough for everyone, and it is up to each individual person to reach out and take it.

  2. Hello Clark,

    As you know, there are two kinds of people. 

    One who believes that nothing is a miracle and the one who believes everything is a miracle.

    Rumi is one of my favorites. He is as great a soul on earth as it is in heaven.

    There is no coincidence in this world. Things happened because they have to happen. 

    For everything, there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.

    I really did enjoy reading your post and I was so in tune with it as it resonated with my spirit. 

    Thank you ever so much for sharing your post. You are really making a huge difference in this world through your writings and especially encouraging and inspirational messages.

    Be well and may you move forward to your expanded good divinely guided and lavishly prospered.

    God bless you, Clark.


    • Yes, you may believe that everything is a miracle, or that nothing is a miracle, and whichever you choose to believe you are right, and the world will show you evidence of it. I’m glad you liked my article, and please feel free to read more. I have a whole series on appreciating Rumi’s quotes.
