Understanding Change!

“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world.
Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”

Rumi

“And you? When will you begin that long journey into yourself?”

Rumi

“You have to keep breaking your heart until it opens.”

Rumi

“Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes.
Because for those who love with heart and soul there is no such thing as separation.”

Rumi

“Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love.
It will not lead you astray.”

Rumi

“The breezes at dawn have secrets to tell you
Don’t go back to sleep!
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep!
People are going back and forth
across the doorsill where the two worlds touch,
The door is round and open
Don’t go back to sleep!”

Rumi

“In Silence there is eloquence. Stop weaving and see how the pattern improves.”

Rumi

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”

Rumi

“What you seek is seeking you.”

Rumi

“Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.”

Rumi

“Wear gratitude like a cloak and it will feed every corner of your life.”

Rumi

“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.”

Rumi

“Silence is the language of god, all else is poor translation.”

Rumi

“Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.”

Rumi

“Everything in the universe is within you. Ask all from yourself.”

Rumi

  1. Let’s see if this comment will post. The other one didn’t

      And I got this one too. When you hit the Post Comment button it will just show (a little slowly) a ‘Submitting Comment’ and then nothing, and then it sits at my end because I have the settings on ‘Manual Approval’ and will not come up until I approve the comment. In most other blogs your comment should come up straight away for you only and say ‘Awaiting Manual Approval’ or some such. I don’t know why this is happening. Whether I need a certain plugin because I am self hosted (which seems odd considering it is a normal function of WordPress) or it is the theme (mind you I’ve had about 15 lately testing them all out).
      But, you are coming through dear lady so there are small mercies, it is a start with the mayhem that has been happening.
      Thank you again for your perseverance it is muchly appreciated ❤️

  2. Hey seems the gremlins have let me back in again. Love all of these qoutes Mark. Commenting via phone. I should get my pc back later today. 💕🤗😘

    • Mark Lanesbury

      lol. Bizzare Sue, I’m not game to click on anything, it would probably send an email to the queen 😂

  3. What an incredible and profound post, Mark. So many of those quotes found my head bobbing up and down, yes! I understand! Yes! The only way this world will change is by focusing on self to change. And then the ripple effect happens just naturally. Loved every single quote many of which I read several times. I have several books with Rumi’s writings in them. Thank you for reminding me that when I need inspiration, all I have to do is reach for a book that is close by. Much Love to you!! 💜💜💜

      They are amazing words from Rumi, like he had found his opening to his soul…as we all eventually do 😀
      Your the first to comment after a re-load Amy so something is working thank you.
      Have a great weekend dear lady 😀

  4. I am such a sucker for quotes. Pair that with Rumi and you can’t go wrong. There is so much wisdom and many resonate so deeply and speak to us because of our own experiences. Thank you so much for compiling and sharing these powerful words here.
    PS. I am still catching up and my responses for your kind comments are on the way. I just can’t say it quickly and there is so much that could be said. Have a great day. Hugs

    • He is a very wise man. The feeling I get is he was able to ‘connect’ very deeply within and it just flowed like the magic that unconditional love is.
      The time that I ‘touched’ that inner place left me with a very profound understanding of what unconditional love is…the letting go of all our ‘conditions’ we bind ourselves in this world (which in itself has great meaning), and realising in that let go that there is a ‘knowing’ of absolutely everything while standing in that place. I did not have to utter a thought, I just ‘knew’ everything. There was no time, no expectations, no binding of anything…it just was. That very place showed me that it is in fact this conditional world that actually shows us unconditional. Like anything else we do down here, once faced and understood our fears are left behind. Fears are ‘only’ those things we don’t fully understand. Once understood they lose their power forever.
      Reply as your heart takes you dear lady because you are one of the few who have been able to comment on my blog. An error seems to be blocking any comments and likes and to hear your sweet words are magic in themselves when I thought that I was alone forever 😀
      May your day also be grand, you have saved me. Hugs returned in kind ❤️

      • What a profound comment my dear friend as I relate to every word because of my own experiences. I couldn’t have said it better and I see you, for you have walked the same path and have taken those adverse times and turned them into your greatest teachers. You have surrendered and learned to go with the flow. We don’t always need to be in control and life always provides us with what we need at that given time. Even when it feels wrong and we don’t yet understand. Fears often have to do with change as well and the unknown. Being taken out of our comfort zone, leaving us exposed and vulnerable. I wear my heart in my sleeve which leaves me very vulnerable at times, but if someone abuses that and takes advantage of me, it’s really in them as it is a testament to their character. This view allows me to forgive them and realize what hell they must be fighting. Big hug my friend ❤️

        • Thank you dear lady. It is all an amazing journey, we stumble along thinking the world is out to get us, but beneath us all is this grand teaching to guide us closer and closer to that beauty within 😀
          Painful at times, but ever guiding us inward. Thank you and a big hug for sharing your journey ❤️
