Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. Mevlana Rumi

The minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.
Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.
They’re in each other all along.
Mevlana Rumi

When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.

There is a thread from the heart to the lips where the secret of life is woven. Words tear the thread but in silence the secrets speak. Mevlana Rumi

The friend has secret ways known to no one else

If the door shuts, do not go away. Be patient, even if every possibility seems closed. The friend has secret ways known to no one else. Mevlana Rumi
