Only Breath – Soul Enriching Poem By Rumi

Life often moves so fast that we seldom have a chance to reflect on the miraculous beauty of it. In fact, we are often confronted with so many challenges and difficulties that it’s difficult to remember what a truly marvellous gift life really is. Luckily, there’s Rumi and his unique ability to inspire with his stunning poetry. Having a collection of inspiring Rumi poetry at hand can be quite helpful, especially when life confronts you with great difficulties. During these challenging times, it can be wonderfully uplifting – sometimes even life-changing, to read Rumi’s wise sayings. His inspirational poetry about life will help you to remember how beautiful your existence already is. Similarly, his poems will encourage you to get back up on your feet whenever life drags you down.

Jalal ad-Din Rumi, the great Persian poet and Sufi mystic, is not only widely popular all around the world but has also become the #1 best-selling poet in the US. The Arabian poet who composed more than 50,000 lines of inspiring and enlightening poems during his lifetime intended with his impressive work to bring the reader closer to the truth. As millions of followers and readers will attest, Rumi greatly succeeded with his mission.

Rumi’s ecstatic poems have influenced millions of people from all kinds of different backgrounds throughout the ages. Even though he was born 809 years ago, his great influence still endures in the present day and age. This is mainly because his unique way of writing is still capturing the imaginations of modern-day readers. At the same time, he is skilfully able to articulate the deep longing for meaning many of us feel within, which further contributes to his popularity.

Today I share with you the poem “I am only the house of your Beloved”. I hope you find the following poem as uplifting and soul enriching as I do.

 

 

Only Breath – Soul Enriching Poem By Rumi

 

Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, not Hindu
Buddhist, sufi, or zen. Not any religion

or cultural system. I am not from the East
or the West, not out of the ocean or up

from the ground, not natural or ethereal, not
composed of elements at all. I do not exist,

am not an entity in this world or in the next,
did not descend from Adam and Eve or any

origin story. My place is placeless, a trace
of the traceless. Neither body or soul.

I belong to the beloved, have seen the two
worlds as one and that one call to and know,

first, last, outer, inner, only that
breath breathing human being.
