Rumi & The Law of Attraction Rich Science Secret

Updated on May 13, 2013

Rumi and What He Tells Us

The law of attraction rich science secret is available to you. The hypnosis law of attraction free for the taking and science of getting rich the law secret attraction is there within your being. We try yet, none of us are perfect... did you know that? We are not perfect nor are we expected to be. Rumi gave me that. When I read from his poetry I feel his imperfections and yet his continual longing to do better, reach higher. What a relief! I am not alone in messing up and neither are you!. Ever read "The Four Agreements" by Miguel Luis? Such a treasure, it reminds us of the value of our own being and that the goal is to 'try'. Ahhh sigh... ahhh relief. I have posted "The Four Agreements" below as well as other things that will help you along your way. One step at a time, right to left I tell myself.. do your best.

I first came across the writings of Rumi while joining a book club of all things. I selected a set of books that gave me a broad sense of philosophy wanting to round out my library as well as my thinking.

The day my six for a dollar books came in the mail I was excited of course. I sent away for art books as well and quickly went through them first. I had no idea at the time how one book within the package would bless me later and to this day. Sipping freshly ground coffee one day I sat in my favorite chair and looked through my set of six small books on philosophy. Quite a deal to get six books that only counted as one I thought. One book stood out though, The Book of Rumi. I looked through the pages and felt the human spirit of its author. I was surprised to read such honesty. It gave me hope in my own propensity of trying to be a 'good' person. I came across this quote:

"Out beyond ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing there is a field. I'll meet you there."

~Rumi

This quote is just the most perfect one a person could ever find and say to themselves. It tells a tale of wanting to do right but sometimes failing. We all do! It is OK we all do, we are human. We do the best we can but sometimes we fail. We fail and others fail as well, no one is perfect.

I loved this quote so much that I made little cards of it. I wrote the quote in calligraphy, painted little flowers on the border and gave them to friends. I also put one in my bathroom. I always have a little space kind of like an alter in my bathrooms. Funny place? Well I figure it is a space where company goes as they take a second for themselves. Many of my friends do the same thing now as well. I love that I could have influenced them in such a positive way.

Jalalud'din Rumi is one of the world's most revered mystical poets. During his lifetime he produced a prolific range of inspiring and devotional poetry which encapsulates the sufi's experience of union with the divine. These timeless classics have enjoyed a renaissance in recent years, as Rumi has become one of our most popular poets. Although Rumi was a Sufi and a great scholar of the Qu'ran his appeal reaches across religious and social divisions. Even during his lifetime he was noted for his cosmopolitan outlook. His funeral, which lasted 40 days, was attended by Muslims, Jews, Persians, Christians and Greeks.

Rumi was born in 1207 on the Eastern shores of the Persian Empire. He was born in the city of Balkh( in what is now Afghanistan), and finally settled in the town of Konya, in what is now Turkey. It was a period of remarkable social and political turbulence. The 13th Century was the era of the crusades; also the area where Rumi lived was under constant threat of Mongol invasion. The great upheavals Rumi faced during his life is said to have influenced much of his poetry.

Rumi met many of the great Sufi poets. For example, as a young boy he met the Sufi Master, Attar. Attar is said to have commented about Rumi.

"There goes a river dragging an ocean behind it."

However the most important turning point in Rumi's life was when he met the wandering dervish Shams al- Din. Shams was eccentric and unorthodox, but was filled with heart - felt devotion, that sometimes he couldn't contain. Shams appeared to be quite different to the respectable and prestigious scholar, (as Rumi was at that point.) However Rumi saw in Shams a divine presence. This meeting and their close mystical relationship was instrumental in awakening Rumi's latent spirituality and intense devotion. It was at this point Rumi abandoned his academic career and began to write his mystical poetry.

Rumi's poetry is wide ranging and encompasses many different ideas but behind all the poetry the essential theme was the longing and searching for the union with the divine. Rumi was himself a great mystic. His outpourings of poetry were a reflection of his own inner consciousness. Ironically Rumi said that no words could adequately explain the experience of mystical union. Yet his words are inspiring signposts which point towards the divine.

In his poetry Rumi frequently uses imagery which may be unexpected. For example although Islam forbids alcohol, he often describes the sensation of being "drunk and intoxicated with ecstasy for his beloved." Here drunk implies the bliss of the divine consciousness. Love is a frequent subject of Rumi's poems, descriptions of seeming romantic love is an illusion to the all encompassing pure, divine love. Metaphors such as this are common to other Sufi poets such as Omar Khayyam, Hafiz, and Attar.

Rumi's poetry is so widely appreciated because it has the capacity to uplift our own consciouness. Reading the words of Rumi can awaken in ourselves, our own spiritual self.

Rumi Quotes

Don't grieve. Anything you lose comes round in another form.

Rumi

Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart.

Rumi

It may be that the satisfaction I need depends on my going away, so that when I've gone and come back, I'll find it at home.

Rumi

Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.

Rumi

Something opens our wings. Something makes boredom and hurt disappear. Someone fills the cup in front of us: We taste only sacredness.

Rumi

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you; Don't go back to sleep. You must ask for what you really want; Don't go back to sleep. People are going back and forth across the doorsill where the two worlds touch. The door is round and open. Don't go back to sleep.

Rumi

This is love: to fly toward a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment. First to let go of life. Finally, to take a step without feet.

Rumi

I am an artist... poetry and music are my muse.

I write poetry, stories, paint and sculpt. Rumi plays a big part in how I feel about myself in all of my endeavors.

OUT BEYOND IDEAS

Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing,

there is a field.

I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass,

the world is too full to talk about.

Ideas, language, even the phrase

each other

doesn't make any sense.

Rumi

(Sufi Mystic 1207-1273 A.D.)

translation by Coleman Barks

About Rumi:

Jalal al-Din Rumi , also called by the honorific Mawlana the greatest Sufi mystic and poet in the Persian language, famous for his lyrics and for his didactic epic Masnavi-yi Ma'navi ("Spiritual Couplets"), which widely influenced Muslim mystical thought and literature. Rumi's influence on Turkish cultural life can scarcely be overstated.

5 Ways to Feel Better and a Whole Lot Younger

BY Kathy Ostman-Magnusen

In the spirit of Rumi:

"5 Ways to Feel Better and a Whole Lot Younger"

I wake up each morning

to a little doggie.

She depends

on me.

My canine wags her tail

as I make my coffee.

I almost think she's

making lists

of what today

might lead to discover

anticipation of new spectacular things.

I confess

I want to claim that ticket

make the best of the days

unknown thicket.

Little doggie in waiting

and me?

This is ONE.. hun!

GET A DOGGIE!

Yes I confess

my own life is indeed

in mind.

With a smile

it unwinds

for the brighter side of a doggies

energetic side.

Putting on coat in Winter

cool breezes that blow

meet me in the mornings

where new days do

glow.

I see that day and Ohhh!

Meeting the day

a GRATITUDE JOURNAL

known.

I write about everything my life meets

and the ways I've grown

It is TWO full blown.

SUNRISE meets upon the sky

if I

gather my senses early enough

to meet such a life

true high

and that is THREE.

Miracles not to be missed

high signs

bring you extreme liberty.

MUSIC and DANCE meet my muse

a nebulous theme

yet so much to use

with a rhythm sublime

meeting the who

that is I.

It is all so clear

in the self discovery

time

line

Dance and sing

to feel sublime.

FOUR floors me

so obvious the cure

to a lack of imagination

better do ART

for a mind to be secure.

Do it

color the lines in-between

feel the hues

or clay between your fingers

consider the possibilities

no time to linger.

FIVE? Mind your souls heart

RUN TO the MAGIC

and define all your longings.

It's a seductive life's cure

claim it

its yours.

Life sublime

live it to the fullest

and the dream you live

will be everything

you imagined

and concluded

as the very best

way to feel a whole lot younger.

So get to it

create your own thunder!

Nothing Lasts Forever by Poet : Rabindranath Tagore - Photo by Dennis G Magnusen

Nothing lasts forever

No one lives forever

Keep that in mind, and love

Our life is not the same old burden

Our path is not the same long journey

The flower fades and dies

We must pause to weave perfection into music

Keep that in mind, and love

My beloved, in you I find refuge

Love droops towards its sunset

To be drowned in the golden shadows

Love must be called from its play

And love must be born again to be free

Keep that in mind, and love

My beloved, in you I find refuge

Without seeing my love, I cannot sleep

Let us hurry to gather our flowers

Before they are plundered by the passing winds

It quickens our blood and brightens our eyes

To snatch kisses that would vanish

If we delayed

Our life is eager

Our desires are keen

For time rolls by

Keep that in mind, and love

My beloved, in you I find refuge

Beauty is sweet for a short time

And then it is gone

Knowledge is precious

But we will never have time to complete it

All is done and finished

In eternal heaven

But our life here is eternally fresh

Keep that in mind, and love

Poet : Rabindranath Tagore

KATHY NOTE:

There is a story in this book, the COMPANION to the first book, that changed my life. It is the story of the how we are perceived by our family, friends, etc. that seems to define us to our own selves. Is that really WHO WE ARE though? In reading that passage I realized that 'no', I still needed to define myself and that I was not (and probably still not) who they saw me. Discover WHO you are! I am working on that too!

More Rumi Wisdom

Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love.

No longer a stranger, you listen all day to these crazy love-words. Like a bee you fill hundreds of homes with honey, though yours is a long flight from here.

If your guidance is your ego, don't rely on luck for help, you sleep during the day and the nights are short. By the time you wake up your life may be over.

There is no 'other world.' I only know what I've experienced. You must be hallucinating.

My friend, the Sufi is the friend of the present moment. To say tomorrow is not our way.

Travelers, it is late. Life's sun is going to set. During these brief days that you have strength, be quick and spare no effort of your wings.

The rain-weeping and the sun burning twine together to make us grow. Keep your intelligence white-hot and your grief glistening, so your life will stay fresh. Cry easily like a little child.

God is never seen immaterially; and the vision of Him in woman is the most perfect of all.

Ohhh I love this one! Soo dear and soo true!

Only from the heart Can you touch the sky.

I saw you and became empty. This emptiness, more beautiful than existence, it obliterates existence, and yet when it comes, existence thrives and creates more existence!

Stay with friends who support you in these. Talk with them about sacred texts, and how you are doing, and how they are doing, and keep your practices together.

O, happy the soul that saw its own faults.

The middle path is the way to wisdom.

So delicate yesterday, the night singing birds by the creek. Their words were: You may make a jewelry flower out of gold and rubies and emeralds, but it will have not fragrance.

Reason is like an officer when the king appears. The officer then loses his power and hides himself. Reason is the shadow cast by God; Go is the sun.

I died a mineral, and became a plant. I died a plant and rose an animal. I died an animal and I was man. Why should I fear? When was I less by dying?

Come out of the circle of time And into the circle of love.

Let the lover be disgraceful, crazy, absent-minded. Someone sober will worry about events going badly. Let the lover be.

Loosen the bonds of avarice from your hands and neck.
