Rumi has been described as the “most popular poet in America” and his poetry is truly wisdom for the ages. This mystic believed passionately in music, poetry and meditative dance as a path to God. This is characteristic of Rumi’s loving challenge: “This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor. Welcome and attend them all…”
During our “spiritual journey” through Rumi’s poetry, we also may turn towards truth, grow through love, abandon our egos, and arrive at God. We join Rumi as seekers, and return to our everyday lives with greater maturity, open hearts and a deeper call to loving service to all creation.
