Monday Musings: Go on Get Drunk on Gratitude!

By

One of my favorites authors to quote is Rumi. Rumi was a 13th-century Persian poet, faqih, Islamic scholar, theologian, and Sufi mystic originally from Greater Khorasan in Greater Iran. Wikipedia.  We both have been inspired by his poems and thoughts.  Here are three of our favorite quotes.  Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead!

 

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.

~Rumi

 

"Gratitude is the wine for the soul. Go on. Get drunk."

~ Rumi

 

"You were born with potential. You were born with goodness and trust. You were born with ideals and dreams. You were born with greatness. You were born with wings. You are not meant for crawling, so don't. You have wings. Learn to use them and fly."

~ Rumi

 

Happy Monday, Go on. Get Drunk on Gratitude and Fly!

Hi Ron and Alexandra Seigel 

I liked this quote the best

"You were born with potential. You were born with goodness and trust. You were born with ideals and dreams. You were born with greatness. You were born with wings. You are not meant for crawling, so don't. You have wings. Learn to use them and fly."

~ Rumi

Hi Ron and Alexandra Seigel - the third quote is why I love children so much.  You can see their goodness and trust. They have not yet been tainted by the world around them.  Their energy is pure and wonderful to experience.

Hi Ron and Alexandra- I was not that familiar with Rumi but found the last quote a good one to share with our young people.

Michael Jacobs Those quotes have served us well.  On the first one, we met an Israeli who was invited to speak to a Palestinian meeting.  He is a musician, and he wrote a song based on both faction creating Rumi's field...We teared up hearing it.  A

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® We love the enthusiasm and innocence of kids.  That Rumi quote was what both of our parents taught us,  And we both are still in that state of mind...They also taught us, it is none of our business what others may think of us...A
