One of the things that Rumi
has taught us is to listen to your heart for your heart holds the answers. The answers in love and the answers in life are within your heart. Stop for a moment and feel your heart beating, can you feel it telling you anything? Is it full and does it feel well? Clear your mind and just listen.
“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” – Rumi
Many people put up walls and barriers to love within their hearts, to keep their heart safe, but in the end it only leaves us lonely. Find your walls and take them down. It may not be easy but, in the end it will be worth it. You can share your love with the world then and love will come in return. The adventure of an open heart is well worth tearing down your barriers.
“That which is false troubles the heart, but truth brings joyous tranquility.” – Rumi
Indeed falseness troubles the heart and you feel the misery dragging you down. When you sense the falseness your heart has a way of telling you as when it is true your heart can sense that it all feels alright. This is one of the things that you learn to listen to your heart for, the truth. It may take some practice with listening to your heart to develop the skill but, it is more than worth it.
“What you seek is seeking you.” – Rumi
One of Rumi’s most famous quotes, some people say that like attracts like unless it’s a magnet in which the opposite poles attract. If you have the right attitude and seek others who fan your flames then you will find each other. It might all seem a bit crazy but it’s how things work with people, many people who are alike group together. Make sure that you can get with the right group for you.
“Do you know what you are? You are a manuscript oƒ a divine letter. You are a mirror reflecting a noble face. This universe is not outside of you. Look inside yourself; everything that you want, you are already that.” – Rumi
Ultimately this last quote says that we are all the universe, we are all made of stars if you will. In your heart exists the universe and the universe is your heart. You are the universe and the universe is you. Everything is the universe looking back on itself, that includes you. So take heart and know that your heart has the answers and will lead you in the right direction.
