    In December 1273, when Rumi fell ill, he predicted his own death and composed a ghazal which begins with the verse:

    '' How doest thou know what sort of king I have within me as companion?
    Do not cast thy glance upon my golden face, for I have iron legs. ''

    i was introduced to sufism through rumi. i got turned on to him by my brother who passed on the poem given the title the many wines in coleman barks' the essential rumi.

    then i was introduced to hafiz...

    rumi is among my three current favorite poets. there would be too much to say in praise of his poetry, and it's better, of course, to actually read it. one may need, however, to have some taste of the mystical experience to appreciate it. as paul says in 1 corinthians, only the spirit (of God) searches and understands the spirit.

    t doesn't matter where from Rumi was..what matteres is he has given us the largest of the treasures of Sufi Poetry ever produced.
    His poetry classified as Sufi Poetry is in fact the basic truth of this Universe.

Best Poem of Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

Be With Those Who Help Your Being

Be with those who help your being.
Don't sit with indifferent people, whose breath
comes cold out of their mouths.
Not these visible forms, your work is deeper.

A chunk of dirt thrown in the air breaks to pieces.
If you don't try to fly,
and so break yourself apart,
you will be broken open by death,
when it's too late for all you could become.

Leaves get yellow. The tree puts out fresh roots
and makes them green.
Why are you so content with a love that turns you yellow?

Read the full of Be With Those Who Help Your Being

Laila And The Khalifa.

The Khalifa said to Laila, "Art thou really she
For whom Majnun lost his head and went distracted?
Thou art not fairer than many other fair ones."
She replied, "Be silent; thou art not Majnun!"


If thou hadst Majnun's eyes,
The two worlds would be within thy view.
Thou art in thy senses, but Majnun is beside himself.
