Description Nothing can help me but that beauty. There was a dawn I remember when my soul heard something from your soul. I drank water from your spring and felt the current take me. ~Rumi.Not only the thirsty seek the water, the water as well seeks the thirsty. ~Rumi.Let silence take you to the core of life. All your talk is worthless when compared to one whisper of the Beloved. ~Rumi.A lifetime without love is of no account, love is the water of life, drink it down with heart and soul. ~Rumi.I become a waterwheel, turning and tasting you, as long as water moves. ~Rumi.Wash the dust from your soul and heart with wisdom's water. ~Rumi.Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and the Spirit. ~John 3:5.The body is your temple. Keep it pure and clean for the soul to reside in. ~B.K.S.Iyengar.Empty your mind. Be formless, shapeless, like water. It can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend. ~Bruce Lee.Life, like a stream of water, is renewed and renewed...though it wears the appearance of continuity in form. ~Rumi.The inner self of every human waits patiently until we are ready to discover it. ~Deepak Chopra.Dripping water hollows out stone, not through force but through persistence. ~Ovid.Penetrate the heart of just one drop of water, and you will be flooded by a hundred oceans. ~M.Shabistari.It's not what you look at that matters. It's what you see. ~H.D.Thoreau.
