Passionate and witty, earthy and mystical, the soul-stirring poetry of 13th century Sufi poet Rumi transports us, especially when translated by Coleman Barks and accompanied by the work of artist Matt Manley.
January: A road may end at a single house, but it is not love’s road. Love is a river. Drink from it. - Rumi
February: Unfold your own myth. - Rumi
March: Whatever you love, you are. - Rumi
April: Observe the wonders as they occur around you. - Rumi
May: We watch a sunlight dust dance, but nobody knows what music those particles hear. - Rumi
June: What I was hiding deep inside, you brought out into the light… - Rumi
July: Warmed by a sun inside, you'll see wonders. - Rumi
August: Keep walking, though there's no place to get to. Don’t try to see through distances. That's not for human beings. Move within, but don't move the way fear makes you move. - Rumi
September: Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond. - Rumi
October: I tell everything, but I do not say it, because, my friend, it is better that your secret be spoken by you. - Rumi
November: Let the beauty of what you love be what you do. - Rumi
December: The most alive moment comes when those who love each other, meet each other's eyes and in what flows between them then. - Rumi
