“Knock, And He’ll open the door Vanish, And He’ll make you shine like the sun Fall, And He’ll raise you to the heavens Become nothing, And He’ll turn you into everything.”

Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī  and more popularly simply as Rumi (30 September 1207 – 17 December 1273),  a 13th-century Persian Sunni Muslim poet, jurist, Islamic scholar and theologian. Also a Sufi mystic originally from Greater Khorasan. Rumi’s influence transcends national borders and ethnic divisions: Iranians, Tajiks, Turks, Greeks, Pashtuns, other Central Asian Muslims, and the Muslims of South Asia greatly appreciate his spiritual legacy for the past seven centuries. As a result, his poems are widely translated into many of the world’s languages and  are  transposed into various formats. Rumi is described as the “most popular poet” and the “best selling poet” in the United States.

If you knew your potential to feel good, you would ask no one to be different so that you can feel good. You would free yourself of all of that cumbersome impossibility of needing to control the world, or control your mate, or control your child. You are the only one who creates your reality. For no one else can think for you, no one else can do it. It is only you, every bit of it you.

Rumi’s works are written mostly in Persian, but occasionally he also used Turkish, Arabic, and Greek, in his verse. His Masnavi (Mathnawi), composed in Konya, is considered one of the greatest poems of the Persian language.

And, His works are widely read today in their original language across Greater Iran and the Persian-speaking world.  Accordingly his translations of his works are very popular, most notably are in Turkey, Azerbaijan, the United States, and South Asia.

His poetry has influenced not only Persian literature, but also Turkish, Ottoman Turkish, Azerbaijani, as well as the literature of some other Turkic, Iranian, and Indo-Aryan languages including Chagatai, Urdu and Pashto.

The general theme of Rumi’s thought, are like that of other mystic and Sufi poets of Persian literature, is that of tawhid — union with the Beloved, from whom he sees himself as being cut off and aloof. Also…

Rumi a Perfect Poetic Voice

Rumi believed passionately in the use of music, poetry and dance as a path for reaching God. For Rumi, music helps devotees to focus their whole being on the divine and to do this so intensely that the soul is both destroyed and resurrected.

Also, It is from these ideas that the practice of whirling Dervishes developed into a ritual form. As a result his teachings became the base for the order of the Mevlevi, which his son Sultan Walad organised.

Rumi encouraged Sama, listening to music and turning or doing the sacred dance. In the Mevlevi tradition, samāʿ represents a mystical journey of spiritual ascent through mind and love to the Perfect One.

Wherefore the journey, the seeker symbolically turns towards the truth. They grows through love. They abandon the ego and find the truth and arrives at the Perfect.

And as a result, the seeker then returns from this spiritual journey, with greater maturity.  To love and to be of service to the whole of creation without discrimination with regard to beliefs, races, classes and nations.
