Pointers to Presence
Rumi, aka Jalāl ad-Dīn Muḥammad Rūmī , is one of the spiritual worlds most beloved and revered mystic poets. A Persian sufi of the 13th century whose son founded the famous Order of The Whirling Dervishes, Rumi’s work transcends it’s ethnic origins.
His meeting with the dervish, Shams-e Tabriz, was instrumental in the transformation in Rumi’s life. His love and bereavement has been immortalized in his lyrical works in memoriam of Shams. They are considered sama, the practice of listening to music and doing sacred dance in a mystical and spiritual ascent through one’s mind and love into union with The One. The dance is designed to represent turning our head towards Truth, abandoning the ego and ends with the dancer dedicating his life to service of humanity without discrimination.
Rumi saw man’s journey in all of it’s manisfestations, as a universal, evolutionary process of returning to and merger with our True Nature, the very ground of divinity.
“There is a life-force within your soul, seek that life.
There is a gem in the mountain of your body, seek that mine.
O traveler, if you are in search of That
Don't look outside, look inside yourself and seek That.
This aloneness is worth more than a thousand lives.
This freedom is worth more than all the lands on earth.
To be one with the truth for just a moment,
Is worth more than the world and life itself."
