By Ruby

Basically, Hafiz was a a renogade Rumi.  Here are some of his poems on this blog:

“Why not become the one who lives with a full moon in each eye.” That Moon Language

“I know of no other topic (love) for us to discuss until we all die!” The Subject Tonight is Love

“My dear, how can I be more loving to you, how can I be more kind?” It Happens All the Time in Heaven

“The stones and stars envy the movements of your legs and tongue and call to you to sing on their behalf.” They Call to You to Sing

“Love sometimes gets tired of speaking sweetly and wants to rip to shreds all your erroneous notions of truth.” Tired of Speaking Sweetly

Rumi, like Hafiz, was a 13th century poet and philosopher.  Rumi has been the best-selling poet in the U.S. for the last ten years and is well known as a bridge-between-faiths*.

His poetry in particular speaks to the core radiance in each of us, regardless of individual religious beliefs.  Here are some of his poems on this blog:

“If words are tinged with lying, they’re like water dripping into an oil lamp”. When Words are Tinged With Lying

“Close the language-door and open the love-window.” Some Kiss We Want

“When desire weeds grow thick, intelligence can’t flow, and soul creatures stay hidden.” Looking into the Creek

“People are going back and forth across the doorsill where two worlds touch.” The Round Door

“Find the real world, give it endless away.” Find the Real World

“The sweetness of how we talk together is what we crush and bring the world.” We Are the Sun

“The friend dumps plaster on your head.  Think of it as an expensive perfume.” Disciplines

“An oyster opens his mouth to swallow one drop. Now there’s a pearl.” Unfold Your Own Myth

“We should split the sack of this culture and stick our heads out” Split the Sack

“Your loving alertness is a lantern.” New Blossoms

“You control what is manifest and what is hidden.” Granted

“You are pure soul and made of ground.” The Living Doubleness

“So many garish lamps in the dying brain’s lamp-show.” Gazing at the Light

“That moon stole me and rushed back into the sky.” At the Twilight

“A narcissus sprouts through the ground.” The Only Obligation

“Last night the moon came dripping its clothes in the street.” Everywhere is Falling Everywhere

“Be a sleep and a pure listening at the same time.” Asleep and Listening

“This wine is invisible, yes, but the effect is not.” I Ask One More Thing

“Matter receives a signal from the sea it floats in.” Ocean Light

“Through this blood veil the lover sees a beautiful walk.” A Beautiful Walk Inside You

*”Rumi’s place in the history of religions is as a bridge-between-faiths.  The story of his funeral in 1273 is well known. Representatives came from  every religion -Muslims, Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus.  When questioned about this, they responded, “He deepens us wherever we are.”  Rumi lives in the heart, the core (he might call it friendship) of our impulse to praise, to worship, to explore the mystery of union.  Even his name is a bridge word.” Coleman Barks ~ Rumi: Bridge to the Soul: Journeys into the Music and Silence of the Heart, HarperCollins, 2007.

    Good post. I learn something new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon on a daily basis.
    It will always be useful to read through articles from other authors and use a
    little something from other websites.
