Quote of the Day: Rumi

James Gardens - Toronto

James Gardens – Toronto

“These words I’m saying so much begin to lose meaning:
Existence, emptiness, mountain, straw:
Words and what they try to say swept
out the window, down the slant of the roof.”
~ Rumi

    • I’m so glad you enjoyed it! The words struck me deeply when I read them, to the point where I had nothing more to say about it and just wanted to share the beauty of the moment with everyone! Thank you for stopping by to comment and have a peaceful day πŸ™‚

    • Very true. What spoke to me about this quote was how it was really able to make me feel the limitation and indifference of words themselves as I read the poem; it allowed me to experience the timelessness of the moment free of the limitations that words and concepts create in the mind.
