Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field. I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase “each other”
doesn’t make any sense.
Jalaluddin Muhammad Rumi was a 13th-century poet, jurist, scholar and theologian. His poems have been widely translated into many of the world’s languages.
None of the translations are perfect; the Farsi version is riddled with fabrication as well as the translations. The good news is that a true lover of Rumi’s work can easily collect the gems from the dirt.
The major themes of Rumi’s poems are that of LOVE for God, spiritual states and progression.
