“Knock, and he’ll open the door. Vanish, and he’ll make you shine like the sun. Fall, and he’ll raise you to the heavens. Become nothing, and he’ll turn you into everything” – Rumi
I’m sure you guys have heard of Rumi…the 13th- century Persian poet and Sufi mystic.Well, I am a huge fan. He has such an amazing collection of written works including poems and quotes…you might enjoy checking them out in your spare time.
The above quote is really speaking to my soul…probably because it closely mirrors the vision of the divine Beloved dwelling spiritually within us. By you directing the spotlight in the divine Beloved’s direction…He, in return, will make you shine.
Personally, I love to read the writings of Rumi, and any other sacred text for that matter, from the point of view of the Beloved self. All sacred text is describing you and your journey as the divine, awakened Beloved.
Basically, what I’m trying to say is that sacred text was written by the inspiration of God’s one holy spirit. To understand it’s meaning it must be read in the spirit that it was written…do this by tapping into the mindset of the eternal Beloved identity that lives within. See everything by this new perspective. This is when “enlightenment” happens and this will be transformative to your world.
Just wanted to put that out there. Have a Beloved day!
