I'd drown in a sea of tears if I lived my life ruminating on the past. I would undoubtedly revise memories to be more joyful that they were, or ever have been.
Grief can be the garden of compassion. If you keep your heart open through everything, your pain can become your greatest ally in your life's search for love and wisdom.
This is love: to fly toward a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment. First to let go of life. Finally, to take a step without feet.
Even a speck of love should not go unappreciated, because, as Rumi said, love is the water of life.
Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.
Rumi says love turns thorns into flowers. This means that hate turns flowers into thorns!
