Rumi: Sitar, Roses and Poems

It is Love that holds everything together,
and it is the everything also.
  -- Rumi

Today's guidance from The Rumi Card Book:
Transformation Card:  Put your trust in him who gives Life and Ecstasy.  Don't mourn what doesn't exist; cling to what does.  Don't look back at the past.  Turn your head to wisdom and truth.
Category explanation from the book:  In the universe of Love, all things are in perpetual metamorphosis.  Love powers an endless evolution and a cosmic dance in which all things constantly are born and die and change shape.
This video include some familiar and some less familiar Rumi poems read by Coleman Barks and Robert Bly.

    "Roar lion of the heart
    and tear me open." Rumi
