9 Healing Life Lessons from Rumi

my_wallpaper_

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?!

Rediscover Your Life’s Purpose

“We are all visitors to this time, this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love… and then we return home.” ~ Australian Aboriginal Proverb

What is the purpose of my life?
What is the meaning of true fulfillment?
What do I really want?
Why am I really here on this planet?

With the new reality we are all in, where everyday is a blessing and every thing around us is crumbling, thinking about purpose is so imperative. This is a time when all our plans have gone up in the air. Nothing planned makes sense in the wake of the pandemic. Our lives have completely changed and most people are now realising that the way they had been living before this pandemic, was so far away from their true purpose. Its funny how this down time forced by the pandemic has given us all time to rethink our whole life.

So with that in mind, lets dive into rediscovering our true purpose. And yes, our life’s purpose can change and evolve over time too.

Contentment through Letting Go of Expectations

‘Blessed is the man who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed’ ~Alexander Pope

Every morning we wake up and open our front doors to pick up the newspaper and enjoy the fresh news with a nice cup of steaming tea/coffee. Well, that is usually the ritual in my house. Now we have been having this ritual for years and years and I am beginning to think it was passed down from our forefathers…:)

When one fine Sunday morning (when we await the paper the most..) It doesn’t arrive! Ahhhhh……all hell breaks loose. Tempers are lost, phone calls to the paper delivery company are made, moods go sour and finally the first few hours of the glorious Sunday are lost. Why?? Cause the newspaper wasn’t delivered…NO No NO..Because the news paper wasn’t where we expected it to be..in our hands with our morning coffee. Now, why the paper wasn’t delivered is secondary, the fact that all that time and effort was unnecessarily lost for something as small as a newspaper is something to think about……

5 Transformative Reasons to Start Writing a Journal NOW!“Life is a train of moods like a string of beads; and as we pass through them they prove to be many colored lenses, which paint the world their own hue, and each shows us only what lies in its own focus.”~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

I’m thinking about that Essence that is revealed when we have found or touched Depth.
