Does this all make sense?


Yes It makes perfect sense and good to know you are not searching for the answers. I still am and sadly report that I don't think I will ever be able to say I found all the answers because when I think I have Life changes the questions.

The love you express is the Divine shining through


I think the love Rumi expresses is also the Divine . I think in Muslim poetry two kinds of love/lovers are described. Mehboob-e-haqiqi is Diveine Love or God. Mehboob-e-majazi is any creation that is loved.


In another poem, this is referred to as the mirror of the heart .

The only thing that'll stop you from searching for answers is death.

Well Dr. Mom, I wish I had all the answers of the world. It is that my
questions are composed differently now as they were when I read Rumi Cool

I liked Rumi a lot better when I was at an age where I still searched for answers.


It seems like You are saying " I have outgrown Rumi, I am older and wiser now and have monved on to harder ventures"
