    Ms Jacquii...thank you for posting this. Rumi was a mystic poet and I love love love his work. I think perhaps he was multi-dimensional living on the Earth plane as well as Heaven's plane. Just wow....often times I read his work and am simply out of words, or maybe there are just NO words to describe me, the poem, and my emotions after reading a Rumi.

    You are so right! But wasn't he brilliant!! I love Rumi's works and absolutely adore the vid recital - The readers voice is so soothing. But even more than simply a mystic poet he was a wonderful philosopher and even theosophist. Multi-dimensional living indeed.

    I've just read some background info about him on [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rumi"]Rumi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia@@AMEPARAM@@/wiki/File:Mevlana.jpg" class="image"><img alt="Mevlana.jpg" src="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/e/e9/Mevlana.jpg/225px-Mevlana.jpg"@@AMEPARAM@@commons/thumb/e/e9/Mevlana.jpg/225px-Mevlana.jpg[/ame]:

    I can certainly dig it! Sounds like the story of my life and what drives my own poetry....

    Thanks for commenting Ms. Kim!

    BEAUTIFUL!

    After reading, viewing and hearing this video, I have renewed hope to make a difference in some small way before I leave this Earth. It's so easy to get caught up in the details of your life and forget that you actually have this choice.

    I second this motion SuzyQ...I also believe we make a difference in miniscule ways that are not as noted, perhaps we don't even know that with say, just a smile, we made someone's day. We can indeed get caught up. I love his work, and I am always literally "moved" by his beautiful poetry or prose.

    I third the motion! Both of you ladies have posted on the concept of poetry-as-therapeutic-cure for whatever's ailing humanity. Imagine so many (after hearing, reading, being immersed in Rumi's works) being inspired to make a positive contribution to society through whatever means available, even if simply a true smile lauded upon a stranger...

    No need to get caught up in our own shyt when we are sharing in smiles and laughter and kindness towards fellow man.

    Ha - I'm thinking of the butterfly effect ==> I smiled, therefore there is no new California forest fire destroying acres and acres and acres... hmmmm - Interesting stuff this poetry LOL

    Great posts ladies! :huggles:
