Rumi Quotes to Inspire Your Creativity


Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi was a Persian poet and a sufi master who left this world better than what he founded in through his wealth of poetry, inspiring the 2 most important emotions of mankind; love and passion.

Here are some of the few amazing quotes I found of Rumi, teaching us the importance of being creative and falling in love with it.


Let the beauty of what you love be what you do. There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the earth.

Let your limiting beliefs fade away and never let them come in the way of your creative expression. “Love what you do”. This is as simple as it can be. Fell in love with your ideas, thoughts and visions for your life, so much so that you can never be distracted from any negative thoughts that come to your mind.

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.

Work towards bringing your creative ideas to reality. Creativity is the greatest form of self expression, which is unique to just your thoughts, ideas and innovations. Dive deeper in the love of your ideas, explore it, nourish it, envision and finally work towards it to make it a reality. You have the power to build and create anything you can dream of. It is just a matter of identifying your inner spark and taking the next step to make it a reality.

Inside you there's an artist you don't know about...

We often are unfamiliar of our inner talents until we immerse ourselves in it. The key here is to never hold yourself back from trying out new skills and hobbies. Explore and experiment what’s out there for you. You would never know what excites you until you try it out. A perfect analogy here is when you go shopping, you try on different clothes or shoes and finally pick the one which you like the most. Same idea applies to skills and talents. Every human being has a unique talent, it’s just a matter of exploring it and working towards it to grow and excel in it.

If you are irritated by every rub, how will you be polished?

Challenges are inevitable in trying out something new. Don’t let those challenges be hurdles in your way for excelling in something you love. There are going to be a million challenges, even in things that you are passionate about, but that should never stop you to keep going. Take challenge as a way to learn and grow yourself even better and become the best of the best in what you do.

When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.

Love what you do and give it all you got. Dive deeper into the passion of what you embark on. Live it, breathe it, think about it all the time, dream about it, that is how you can achieve the state of full emersion or the state of flow. Working passionately towards anything gives you the excitement and joy that is incomparable to anything else. Live your best moments and enjoy what you do.

Beauty surrounds us, but usually we need to be walking in a garden to know it.

Observing the beauty around us, is key to fuel our inspiration. We are surrounded by the amazing creations of nature. There are creative secrets to uncover in anything and everything around us. All we need is to have the eye to observe and make meaning out of what we observe. Explore and allow yourself to have the time and space to think about the creations around you. One thing will lead to the other and you will find yourself getting fully emerge in amazing creations.

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.

Our mind is limitless but we often constrain it with our limiting beliefs. We often tell ourselves, “we are not good enough, or something is really hard to achieve”. Try and get control over your mind and fight it every time you get these limiting beliefs. Humans are built and designed to do amazing things. We are a powerful creation that can achieve anything we put our minds to. If we stop thinking negative and built resilience towards overcoming our challenges, we will find ourselves in the best version we can imagine.

You were born with potential. You were born with goodness and trust. You were born with ideals and dreams. You were born with greatness. You were born with wings. You are not meant for crawling, so don’t. You have wings. Learn to use them and fly.

Humans are extremely capable and have the greatest potential of doing anything. History is witness of the amazing creations, inventions and works of art that our ancestors have left us. We should enjoy these creations of the past and explore the beauty in them but also use it as a fuel for our own inspiration for doing the next great thing. Our mind is capable of envisioning the wildest of possibilities and also to make it happen.

The quieter you become the more you are able to hear.

Allow yourself to listen what is going on in your surroundings. The sounds you hear, the words of other people, the noise that come your way. Everything you experience, has a hidden secret. Engage yourself in listening more intently and interpreting it and finding the meaning behind it. You never know, something you hear sparks an inspiration and can be your next big idea.

Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.

If we love what we do and find a spiritual and deep connection with it, the universe and its energies will also begin to work towards it to bring it our way. That is the power of love and passion. However, often we ignore these signs shown to us by the universe and get ourselves busy with external rewards and motivations that don’t really help us live our full potential and our purpose for this life. Pay attention to these signs shown to you and try to uncover them and use it to your benefit. In the long term, you will realize how interestingly those dots get connected, to form the bigger picture of the puzzle.

Creativity is endless and has no boundaries. The only barriers to our imagination are the limiting beliefs that we have set for ourselves. It is extremely important to understand that love is the greatest power of all. One can even say that it is a human superpower that gives us the strength to free ourselves from all sorts of barriers and allows us to experience life to the fullest. With some inspiration from Runi’s words, let’s start using our superpower to its full potential. Love what you do and let the power of the universe do its magic. Experience the great beauty and the wonders of the world that surrounds us. See it, breathe it, feel it and let your love and creativity flow through you endlessly.
