Rumi Path

Rumi was born in Persia in 1207. The father of the future poet was a very well-known lawyer, theologian, and preacher. He had to flee from prosecution for freethinking views, from which we can conclude that the ability and the desire for freedom were passed to his son by inheritance. However, the boy grew curious and received a great education, and not only humanitarian (legal and theological), he also studied the Sciences.

Rumi’s worldview was formed under the influence of Islamic religious doctrine. He believed in the immortality of the soul, and atheism defined this as “bestiality”.

After his father’s death (1231), the poet took his position as a court scientist. Years of wandering, unsettled Iranian social life, and other circumstances finally made him a Sufi pantheist, which led to a conflict with the clergy.

Rumi Quote On Love Image

“Love is an emerald.
Its brilliant light wards off dragons
On this treacherous path.”


Rumi Love Quote Image

“A life without love is of no account. Don’t ask yourself what kind of love you should seek, spiritual or material, divine or mundane, Eastern or Western. Divisions only lead to more divisions. Love has no labels, no definitions. It is what it is, pure and simple. Love is the water of life. And a lover is a soul of fire! The universe turns differently when fire loves water.”

Love will get on its way
To the heart of someone you love
Far or near, it goes home
To where it belongs
To the heart of lovers.”

Those strings on my feet
What is the point?”

To Love is to be God.”
