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.

The Guest House – Soul Enriching Poem By Rumi
This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
