Mystical poems are beautiful too, and few write them better than the 13th century, Sufi mystic poet, Jalal ad-Din Rumi:


Out beyond ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing,
there is a field. I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase ‘each other’
doesn’t make sense any more.


- Rumi



Sit, be still, and listen,
because you're drunk
and we're at
the edge of the roof.


- Rumi




Two there are who are never satisfied -
the lover of the world
and the lover of knowledge.


- Rumi



I have lived on the lip
of insanity, wanting to know reasons,
knocking on a door. It opens.
I've been knocking from the inside.


- Rumi



And you?
When will you
begin that long journey
into yourself?


- Rumi



You think because you understand 'one'
you must also understand 'two',
because one and one make two.
But you must also understand 'and'.


- Rumi



Put your thoughts to sleep,
do not let them cast a shadow
over the moon of your heart.
Let go of thinking.


- Rumi
