Rumi, Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhī, was a 13th-century Persian poet, jurist, theologian, and Sufi mystic who, and in my personal opinion, wrote some of the most beautiful and most profound words that were ever written.

Rumi’s poetry is a series of spiritual and mystical experiences. It is a reflection on Divinity, on nature’s beauty, a song and dance, an intense feeling… anything that stirs our soul.

He is among the poets that show us the importance of every experience, be it good or bad.

Rumi’s words, his verses and his poetry has always inspired me. Its moved me at the soul level. Its made me understand so many of life’s truths that sometimes when I sit to soak in his words, I am astounded by what they reveal. You can read the same poetry a hundred times over and each time you will come to understand another layer of the wisdom it offers. Amazing right?!

Its funny how this down time forced by the pandemic has given us all time to rethink our whole life.
