    1 thought on “Love's Ripening: Rumi on the Heart's Journey”

    1. Find a way to your innermost secret.Let no other perception distract you.You, yourself, possess the elixir,so rub it into your skin,and by this alchemyyour inner enemies will become friends.And as you are made beautiful,the Beautiful One will become your own,the intimate of your once lonely spirit.Mathnawi VI, 3095-3097

    2. My 2 main problems with this was1) it was too religious2) it got sort of repetitive1:The thing is that organized religion tends to stir this aversion in me. This might seem odd, as I am a believer myself, not an atheist, but there seems to be a world of difference between the God/Goddes/Power/Source (I have many names for it) that I believe in, and the God(s) of traditional religions like Christianity, Judaism and Islam (that I know of).I just dont believe in a god who hands out rewards and puni [...]

    3. I went into this expecting something magical and beautiful, but that is not what I found. I am not sure if it is a bad translation, if I just didn't like this particular set of poems but would enjoy his others, or if I don't like Rumi at all. Though that seems unlikely because I've seen quotes of his online that I loved. For whatever reason, I had to force myself to read this, line by line, poem by poem. At rimes it was almost painful to have to do so. I will try again, with a different book and [...]

    4. This edition of Jalludin Rumi's thought and love is something I rely on. His mysticism moves me away from the world of black and white on the one hand and the world of ever increasing speed of supposed information transfer and communication which I find can be confusing and disheartening. Rumi appeals to me because I can imagine a long ago much different culture and feel the values pouring through time.

    5. If you love Rumi already, this is an excellent translation. If sometimes you are overwhelmed by the high-minded spirituality of Rumi,this book will show you the earthly beauty of his poetry. Beautifully poignant and eternally relevant to the world of now and to the world of becoming.

    6. Wonderfully insightful and soulful. Filled with metaphors of love that only life itself can manifest as pure truths.

    7. Just not my cup of tea. It was a gift from someone, so not something I would have normally picked up otherwise.

    8. Really moving and thought provoking. I appreciate the simplicity and total lack of arrogance, which I don't often feel in poetry. I felt carried away by the words, and that's just in translation. Would recommend! Also, I could stand to read it a few more times to really absorb the meaning and feeling of the later poems.One nice quote in particular:If you yearn for holy felicity,shed your arroganceand become a seeker of hearts.
