Rumi: The Language of Life 9

There is some kiss
we want
with our whole lives,
the touch of spirit on the body.
  -- Rumi

Today's guidance from The Rumi Card Book:
Category Love: -- It is certain that an atom of goodness on the path of faith is never lost.  never lose faith that your acts of love (do not) go unnoticed.  May also be an invitation to more generous actions.
Category explanation from the book:  Rumi wrote, "Wherever you may be, in whatever situation or circumstance you may find yourself, strive always to be a lover, and a passionate lover.  Once you possess your heart in love, you will always be a lover, in the tomb, at the Resurrection, and in paradise forever and ever." 
The last segment from the Bill Moyers Series "The Language of Life" which includes small poems and the interview between Moyers and Barks. 


  1. As Daniel Ladinsky has written, "Love is the essence of Rumi, love became his very being, love is the impetus of all his poetry."

  2. I have so enjoyed the Moyers/Barks video interviews as well as the card readings -- absolutely delightful and inspiring.
