Wisdom of the week #12

Love is powerful and I am defeated by love

I have become sweet as sugar by fervency of love

(Rumi, The Masnavi, Book 6:902)


Love has enveloped me and is the unquestionable ruler of every particle of my being. The passion of love has stimulated me and created a storm in my heart and soul, hence, I am now sweet as sugar.

Those who surrender to love to the point that it inflames their heart, show an ecstasy which is far from any depression. Such people have a power above all inabilities. They have passed their own soul and reached the Sweetheart(God) and eternal life.

Those who are bitter to themselves and others lack such vitality. There is no vibrancy without love. Without love, the world is down and depressing. Without love, human’s soul is lifeless. Love brings passion with itself and fills our being with sweetness.
