Two years ago, on a certain sunny day, I was walking home after my classes. The day seemed quite ordinary; nothing spectacular was happening anywhere within my sight. But then, suddenly, out of nowhere, something overwhelming happened to me. I have a ha Let me tell you an anecdote.


I have a habit of looking at the clouds and the leaves of the tall trees dancing against the sky while I am walking.

At this rumi the book of love I was doing the same, and saw a bird fly across the sky. I am not sure which bird it was, maybe a falcon, but seeing it repeatedly soaring in circles, noticing the beautiful soft arc of its wings, moved something inside me.

Maybe it was the music, or the summer leaves, but at that rumi the book of love they all seemed to be merging and becoming one with the flight of that strange bird.

It was almost as if I was a part of something mystic and surreal and I felt I was a part of that mysterious amalgamation too. I do not know how to explain this, but I felt one with everything that was around me and as if everything that I was seeing was happening inside me at the same time as it was happening outside of me.

At this moment, my eyes welled up with tears and the tears started flowing down in streams.

The Book of Love: Poems of Ecstasy and Longing by Rumi

These tears while dripping from my chin brought me back to my senses. I have never felt so euphoric in my life and I certainly doubt if I ever will again. Those few seconds, which almost felt like had soaked up hours of that day, changed everything for me.

I rumi the book of love felt anything near to that feeling again, until now at least, but I always long for it. And everytime I read Rumi, he reminds me of that feeling that passed away so soon and digs up those strong emotions which were left buried deep inside my senses.

Everytime I read his poems, I experience something close to those magical emotions as he always manages to stir them from within; from my soul.

The Book of Love: Poems of Ecstasy and Longing

Is the one I love everywhere? It has been more than three years since my first introduction to Rumi. I started with The Essential Rumi, a great complication and translation of his best poems. I picked up this book to pass my time during one of my insomniac nights, which rumi the book of love to be tonight.

I read every poem; some in a rush and some a word at a time. Rumi is like a wise teacher and a friend who sits next to you, wraps you in his arms and recites in soft whispers the deepest secrets of his mystic world against your ear. He talks only about love and there never seem to be any variations of it.

It is always about the love that revolves around us, is within us, and flows in and out like a stream finding its way to its river, and the river to its sea but there is no way of knowing which is which; just as water is water, love is love.

In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no one sees you, but sometime I do, and that sight becomes this art. He talks in stories, at times in riddles about various human emotions but ends them with the divine love which he experiences and urges us to experience them with him.

He talks about the soul rumi the book of love heart; the insides of the insides.
