Rumi Quotes: Life and the Soul

It may be that the satisfaction I need depends on my going away, so that when I've gone and come back, I'll find it at home

Rumi Quotes: Life and the Soul

 

Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart.

***

All day I think about it, then at night I say it. Where did I come from, and what am I supposed to be doing? I have no idea. My soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that, and I intend to end up there.

***

In the world there is naught so wondrous as the sun, but the Sun of the soul sets not and has no yesterday.

***

Bread is the food of the body, yet consider, How can it be the food of the soul, son?

***

Don’t grieve. Anything you lose comes round in another form.

***

Hidden things are manifested by their opposites.

***

Observe the wonders as they occur around you. Don’t claim them. Feel the artistry moving through and be silent.

***

Virtue cannot exist without temptation and difficulties to be overcome.

***

Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.

I am a first generation Jamaican immigrant whose experiences and accomplishments were made possible by the courage, sacrifices and the heroic acts of many whose bodies have rotted away in unmarked graves. Those are my heroes. Their sacrifices and death paved the way for my children and I. Failure to Listen is a token of my eternal gratitude. Failure to Listen is a tribute those generations of unmarked graves occupied by people of all races whose ultimate sacrifice of life opened the door for me and others, THANK YOU. Failure to Listen https://failuretolisten.wordpress.com/ uses cultural lenses to appreciate and understand the relationships between current events and our values, beliefs and attitudes. Culture is everything without it we are nothing. Failure to Listen will take you on a journey to recognize the beauty of our differences as the seeds to creativity, innovation and resolving disparities. By sharing my personal and professional experiences, I hope to do justice to the perspectives of those who are rarely heard or listened to. This site is not to incite anger but rather to provoke thought. It is my hope that Failure to Listen will work to foster intergroup dialogues and motivate readers to step outside the box and get to know ALL PEOPLE. In the spirit of Martin Luther King, let's join hands and remember his famous speech about a dream... A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. -Margaret Mead
