Maybe many of us still didn’t understand our own existence on earth. It’s not about wealth, nor fame. It’s such a waste of human thought if we have been into those kind of thinking. It’s all about to understand of LOVE of “God” which surrounded us everyday. In our life, in everything. Honestly, i’m deepening my thinking into all Rumi’s work. I
“I died as a mineral and became a plant,
I died as plant and rose to animal,
I died as animal and I was Man.
Why should I fear? When was I less by dying?
Yet once more I shall die as Man, to soar
With angels bless’d; but even from angelhood
I must pass on: all except God doth perish.
When I have sacrificed my angel-soul,
I shall become what no mind e’er conceived.
Oh, let me not exist! for Non-existence
Proclaims in organ tones,
To Him we shall return.”
The concept on everything in one, through Islam (submitting our will to God), and it can’t be deny. LOVE already lived in our system since birth.. since Adam.. but have we try to understand it? Not many… because human was created with their own ignorance. Ignorance on truth, on Love, also Forgetful, that made us unique and a target…
Mawlana Rumi, a philosopher, a teacher, after Muhamad. But his not a prophet. He just a human like us. My pray (do’a) will always with you. Nothing will change.. he reminds me to love anyone on earth. He reminds me to return back to the basic way of living. Maybe it’s a lust, but our lust to nature. Love is from God.
