Grief can be the garden of compassion. If you keep your heart open through everything, your pain can become your greatest ally in your life's search for love and wisdom. ~Rumi.We cannot steal the fire. We must enter it. ~Rumi.Be kind to yourself, dear - to our innocent follies. Forget any sounds or touch you knew that did not help you dance. You will come to see that all evolves us. ~Rumi.I will soothe you and heal you, I will bring you roses. I too have been covered with thorns. ~Rumi.That hurt we embrace becomes joy. Call it to your arms where it can change. ~Rumi.I want that love that is the silence of eternity. ~Rumi.Why struggle to open a door between us when the whole wall is an illusion? ~Rumi.Love's greatest gift is the ability to make everything it touches sacred. ~Rumi.Be melting snow. Wash yourself of yourself. ~Rumi.Through Love all pain will turn to medicine.~Rumi.Silence gives answers. ~Rumi.Everyone sees the unseen in proportion to the clarity of his heart. ~Rumi.Only the soul knows what infinite love is.~Rumi.You have to keep breaking your heart until it opens. ~Rumi.These pains that you feel are messengers. Listen to them. Turn them to sweetness. ~Rumi.The soul has been given its own ears to hear things mind does not understand. ~Rumi.Ideas of right and wrong operate in us until we die. Love does not have those limits. ~Rumi.Embrace the light and let it guide you beyond the winds of desire. ~Rumi.The Beloved is with you in the midst of your seeking! He holds your hand wherever you wander. ~Rumi.
