Thought-of-You-ryan-woodward

Rumi –
Again I am raging, I am in such a state by your soul that every
bond you bind, I break, by your soul.
I am like heaven, like the moon, like a candle by your glow; I am all
reason, all love, all soul, by your soul.
My joy is of your doing, my hangover of your thorn; whatever
side you turn your face, I turn mine, by your soul.
I spoke in error; it is not surprising to speak in error in this
state, for this moment I cannot tell cup from wine, by your soul.
I am that madman in bonds who binds the “divs”; I, the madman,
am a Solomon with the “divs”, by your soul.
Whatever form other than love raises up its head from my
heart, forthwith I drive it out of the court of my heart, by your soul.
Come, you who have departed, for the thing that departs
comes back; neither you are that, by my soul, nor I am that, by your soul.
Disbeliever, do not conceal disbelief in your soul, for I will recite
the secret of your destiny, by your soul.
Out of love of Sham-e Tabrizi, through wakefulness or
nightrising, like a spinning mote I am distraught, by your soul.

  2. Rumi is sublime!

    Here is a compilation dedicated to Rumi. You can get mp3’s or get a new or used disk if you like it.
    Beautiful!

    BTW, when the lyrics talks of death, it does not mean literal death. But death of the ego. And of course reference to intoxication, is referring to love, not drink. It’s allegorical.

    This compilation does tend to express temporal love, as well as divine love.
    Though pure Rumi, only expresses the love of God, that is so focused and intense that the world, the temporal, fades away. The death of his best friend, Shams Tabris was the catalyst, for all his sublime expressions. The grief of loss was so deep, he turned to God. Truely, the wailing of broken hearts is the doorway to God.

    Enjoy! :)
    Peace-

    P.S. Another mystical poet Hafiz wrote a simple poem, which is profound truth.
    “The world is a paradise to the unbeliever, but is a prison to the true believer.” I cried when I first heard that poem, as I felt the meaning to the core of my being. Because we all are souls trapped in a temporal world. And as we all know TPTB concept of paradise is diametrically opposed to a true paradise. As they demonstrate daily.
