Example text

But whenever we use the term divan in this book, it refers only to Rumi’s work. Rumi began to compose elementary poetry in his mid- to late 20s, and he saved many of his compositions through the intervening years, thus giving us a record of the development of his thoughts. He didn’t become “prolific” in the full sense of the word, however, until after his brief time spent with the enigmatic mystic, Shamsuddin of Tabriz. Rumi had formed such a strong bond with him in such a short time that when his friend disappeared, Rumi had no other outlet than to compose poetry to console the sudden emptiness he felt in his heart.

Starting with the angels, they are completely rational. They have no material concerns and know of no other reality than to be in complete awe and worship of the divine beauty of God. They’re in a perfect state of unity. 28 Part 1: Meet the Master The animal state, however, covers those creatures that are governed by instinct more than anything else.

The worker is always looking to be wrapped in honor and to receive a salary; the lover is wrapped in the honor of seeing the Object of his love. Love isn’t found in mere words or hearsay; Love is an ocean whose bottom you can’t see. The drops of the sea can never be numbered; all the water in the seven seas is nothing compared with the Ocean (of God’s Love).
