Rumi Dance Quotes For Belly Dancers
Show me the love!
Here are some dance quotes by Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī/Rumi, the insightful 13th century Persian Poet, Sufi Mystic, & Islamic Scholar for Belly Dancers
The Dancing Cry of the Soul
Come to me, and I shall dance with you In the temples, on the beaches, through the crowded streets
Be you man or woman, plant or animal, slave or free I shall show you the brilliant crystal fires, shining within I shall show you the beauty deep within your soul I shall show the path beyond Heaven. Only dance, and your illusions will blow in the wind Dance, and make joyous the love around you Dance, and your veils which hide the Light Shall swirl in a heap at your feet.
More of Rumi’s Poetry
In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.
& More Dancing is not just getting up painlessly, like a leaf blown on the wind; dancing is when you tear your heart out and rise out of your body to hang suspended between the worlds.
Dance, when you’re broken open. Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you’re perfectly free.
