Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. – Rumi
I liked this quote a lot. It touched me, because I feel people have everything they need to love its just that they are not ready for love. They need to work on themselves to have their hearts open to be ready for love.
This quote was by Rumi, also known as Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhī (جلالالدین محمد بلخى), Mawlānā/Mevlânâ (مولانا, “our master”), Mevlevî/Mawlawī (مولوی, “my master”), and more popularly simply as Rumi (1207 – 17 December 1273), was a 13th-century Persian poet, jurist, Islamic scholar, theologian, and Sufi mystic.
Rumi’s influence transcends national borders and ethnic divisions: Iranians, Tajiks, Turks, Greeks, Pashtuns, other Central Asian Muslims, and the Muslims of South Asia have greatly appreciated his spiritual legacy for the past seven centuries. His poems have been widely translated into many of the world’s languages and transposed into various formats.
Rumi has been described as the “most popular poet” and the “best selling poet” in the United States.
