    Rumi s words have the power to tear your heart to pieces while making it whole again This collection of love poems will comfort and devastate you all at once, if of course, your heart isn t hardened by the pain you ve felt before Some may even say Rumi s words break even the hardest of hearts Open your heart and mind and let the words of Rumi fill you up.

    It s either you love it too much or you hate it so much.I love it because I get what he s trying to say I get where he s going and I could see all the things he wanted me to see.I hate it because I too want such attachment with the King.

    Wonderful collection of poems by the mystic Rumi Rumi does not refer to his love by gender and it is unclear if his love is an individual or God Rumi depicts love as passionately experiential love is not an abstract ideal but it is all consuming Rumi also seems to be calling out to Christians, Muslims and Jews and exhorting them to look at the content of their hearts rather than their doctrines.

    I asked, What should I do He said, That is the question.I said, Is this all you can say He said, Seeker, always keep asking, What Should I Do It is said that God s lightcomes from six directions From where asks the crowd,turning left and right.If only you could look neither wayfor a moment.

    After watching the documentary I AM numerous times and hearing Cole Baker recite Rumi and studying the Course in Miracles, it is evident that as in the Tao, Rumi was an enlightened being and understood God.
