Rules For Love & Spirituality
Shams Tabrizi

A life without love
is a waste.
"Should I look for
spiritual love, or material, or physical love?"

Don't ask yourself this question.
Discrimination leads to discrimination.

Love doesn't need any name,
category or definition.
Love is a world itself.
Either you are in, at the center,
either you are out,

All travelers whether they want or not are changed.
No one can travel into love and remain the same.

The quest for Love changes us.
There is no seeker among those who search for Love
who has not matured on the way. The moment you start
looking for Love, you start to change within and without.

The chemistry of mind is different from the chemistry of love.
The mind is careful, suspicious, he advances little by little.
He advises “Be careful, protect yourself”
Whereas love says“Let yourself, go!”

The mind is strong, never falls down,
while love hurts itself, falls into ruins.
But isn’t it in ruins that we mostly find the treasures?
A broken heart hides so many treasures.

The past is an interpretation. The future is an illusion.
The world does not move more through time as if it were a straight
line, proceeding from the past to the future.
Instead time moves through and within us, in endless spirals.

Eternity does not mean infinite time, but simply timelessness.
If you want to experience eternal illumination, put the past
and the future out of your mind and remain within the present moment.

The universe is a complete unique entity.
Everything and everyone is bound
together with some invisible strings.
Do not break anyone’s heart;
do not look down on weaker than you.
One’s sorrow at the other side of the world
can make the entire world suffer;
one’s happiness can make the entire world smile.

The whole universe is sum up in the Human Being.
Devil is not a monster waiting to trap us,
He is a voice inside.

Look for Your Devil in Yourself, not in the Others.
Don't forget that the one who knows his Devil, knows his God.

If the human being is a proud and honorable creature,
he shouldn't forget to act that way, even if he falls,
even if the whole world is against him, even if he ends as a slave.

The words we use for the Creator are a reflect of ourselves.
If we think of God as fear and shame,
we are scared and have something to be ashamed of.
But if we see love, compassion and kindness,
it is because we possess these qualities.

Don’t search for heaven and hell in the future.
Both are now present.
Whenever we manage to love without expectations,
calculations,negotiations,we are indeed in heaven.
Whenever we fight, hate, we are in hell.

The life we live is just a colourful and deposit toy.
Some of us take it so seriously and fight and cry for it.
Some of us break and throw it.
Either we give extreme importance, either not enough.
Better to stay far from extremes.

No matter what people call you, you are just who you are.
Keep to this truth. You must ask yourself how is it you
want to live your life. We live and we die, this is the truth
that we can only face alone. No one can help us.
So consider carefully, what prevents you from living the way
you want to live your life?

It is never late to ask yourself
“Am I ready to change my life,
am I ready to change myself?”.
However old we are, whatever we
went through, it is always possible to reborn.

If each day is a copy of the last one, what a pity!
Every breath is a chance to reborn.
But to reborn into a new life, you have to die before dying.

We can only learn and advance with contradictions.
The faithful inside should meet the doubtful.
The doubtful should meet the faithful.
Human slowly advances and becomes mature when
he accepts his contradictions.

There may be one fault in a man that conceals
a thousand qualities,or one excellence that
conceals a thousand faults.
The little indicates much.

Patience is not sitting and waiting, it is foreseeing.
It is looking at the thorn and seeing rose,
looking at the night and seeing the dawn.

The lovers never run out of patience,
for they know that time is needed for
the crescent moon to become full.

There are more fake guides, teachers in the world than stars.
The real guide is the one who makes you see your inner beauty,
not the one who wants to be admired and followed.

Remove all the walls and curtains
so you can get closer and purely love.

Have principles but do not use them
to exclude or to judge the others.

Stay far from idols, specially from
those you made from your own principles.
Have a powerful faith, but do not play the powerful.
