I enjoy Rumi.  Reading the Essential Rumi a year or two ago was very insightful.

Shams is a puzzling figure. He appeared one day in Konya, Turkey, where Rumi was a teacher, and when the two had a chance meeting that led to a theological discussion, Shams fell in a swoon at Rumi's feet. Both the poet and his students later described this meeting in terms of the most passionate love:

For lovers, the beauty of the beloved is their teacher

His face is their syllabus, lesson, and book

Shams and Rumi were inseparable. They retreated to a private house in the trade quarter of the city for weeks at a time where they talked about God for hours on end. Shams is often credited with awakening Rumi to the mystical side of Islam — he taught him the hypnotic whirling dance many Sufi dervishes practice today

My mom thought for sure I’d be a lawyer too. But there’s a much bigger case to be made in this place. You bring me to tears my man. Thank you.

''Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.''

That one pulled an emotional string for me. 

''This being human is a guest house. Every morning is a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor...Welcome and entertain them all. Treat each guest honorably. The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing and invite them in. Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.''

Thank you for finding and sharing this.
