Quotes to Live By, by Rumi

Don’t grieve.  Anything you lose comes round in another form.
Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.
Everything in the universe is within you.  Ask all from yourself.
You were born with wings, why prefer to crawl through life?
Ignore those that make you fearful and sad, that degrade you back towards disease and death.
The wound is the place where the Light enters you.
Where there is ruin, there is hope for a treasure.
In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.
Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment.
Dance, when you’re broken open. Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you’re perfectly free.”“Your heart is the size of an ocean.  Go find yourself in its hidden depths.”


Things don’t go wrong and break your heart so you can become bitter and give up.  They happen to break you down and build you up so you can be all that you were intended to be. ~ Charlie Jones

Accept — then act.  Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it…  This will miraclulously transform your whole life. ~ Eckhart Tolle
