Ella ist vierzig Jahre alt, hat einen Ehemann, drei Kinder im Teenageralter und ein schönes Zuhause in einer amerikanischen Kleinstadt. Eigentlich sollte sie glücklich sein, in ihrem Herzen breitet sich aber eine Leere aus, die früher von Liebe gefüllt war. Als Gutachterin für eine Literaturagentur taucht sie tief in einen Roman über den Sufi-Dichter und Mystiker Rumi und die vierzig ewigen, geheimnisvollen Regeln der Liebe ein. Trotz der Ansiedlung im 13. Jahrhundert scheint ihr der Roman immer mehr eine Spiegelung ihrer eigenen Geschichte zu sein. Zusehends distanziert von ihrem Ehemann, beginnt Ella, ihr bisheriges Leben zu hinterfragen. Sie besucht den Verfasser des Buches, Aziz Zahara, mit dem sie sich schriftlich schon rege und sehr persönlich ausgetauscht hat - und erfährt eine derart grundlegende persönliche Veränderung, wie sie es sich nie hätte ausmalen können.

Immediacy and Meaning

J. K. Huysmans and the Immemorial Origin of Metaphysics

Immediacy and Meaning seeks to approach the odd uneasiness at root in all metaphysical meaning; that the human knower attempts to mediate what cannot be mediated; that there is a pre-cognitive immemorial immediacy to Being that renders its participants irreducible, incommunicable and personal. The dilemma of metaphysics rests on the relationship between the spectator and the player, both as essential responses to the immediacy of Being. Immediacy and Meaning is an attempt to pause, but without retreat, to be a spectator within the game, to gain access into this immediate Presence, for a moment only perhaps, before the signatory failure into metaphysical language returns us to the mediated. J. K. Huysman's semi-autobiographical tetralogy anchors this book as a meditation, neither purely poetic nor only philosophical; it claims a unique territory when attempting to speak what cannot be spoken. The unnerving merits of nominalism, the difficulties of an honest appraisal of efficacious prayer, the mad sanity of the muse, the relationship between the uncreated and the created, and an originary ethics of antagonism, each serves to clarify the formation of a new epistemology.

Whispers Beyond the Edge: Glimpses of the Beloved

A SPIRITUAL FEAST! Even as the moth is drawn to self-immolation in the brightness of the candle's flame, so is the spirit of the mystic drawn to self-immolation as it soars to the Sun of its own being. The earth ceases to exist and the heavens grow ever brighter. Words are tattered beyond repair and the spirit becomes one with the living Flame of Love. Such is the ecstasy and the passion as the mystic reaches ever deeper into the mysterious Source of all. Once triumphant in the journey, the realized souls moved by compassion, return to assist others in the upward path. Individually commissioned as the need arises, they come into the prison of this world as ambassadors of Truth. All of us are mystics, but man is an unrealized mystic due to preoccupation with the gifts of this world and his blind ignorance of the Divine Giver. We have become saturated with the world, but the true goal of life is to become saturated with the Divine and return to that home we left so long ago. Royal has been a student at a number of schools of esoteric and mystical teachings in Canada, America, Europe, and the Far East. He states, "Reading these writings of mine are like dipping your toe at the water's edge along the shore of the Ocean of Love for one brief moment; may you be brave enough to dive to the depths."

In this slender volume, Rumi explores the joy of friendship and the agony of loss. These poetic meditations on the most profound of human relationships are like crystals: they sparkle with the many hues of the rainbow and contain worlds within, capturing us with their mystery. Here are poems that cause us to reflect on our own relationships, to experience again the intensity of friendship, the ache of loss, and the profundity of immersion. This is a book for poetry lovers, Rumi fans, and all gift-giving occasions; a book to treasure and to share. Previously published in hardcover as Whispers of the Beloved. Imitating others, I failed to find myself I looked inside and discovered I only knew my name. When I stepped outside I found my real Self.

Traumbild des Herzens

Hundert Lebensweisheiten islamischer Mystik

Author: Dschalaluddin Rumi

Publisher: Manesse Verlag

ISBN: 3641182158

Category: Fiction

Page: 144

View: 6034

Mal leidenschaftlich, mal zärtlich, überschwänglich oder düster, jedoch immer sinnlich und mitreißend umkreist Rumi das Thema der Liebe: Seine Gedichte handeln von Hingabe, Sehnsucht und Entbehrung, von der innigen Verbundenheit mit dem geliebten Menschen und mit Gott. Dschalaluddin Rumi ist berühmt als Verfasser bilderreicher, ekstatischer religiöser Gedichte, in denen er von seinem leidenschaftlichen Streben nach der Vereinigung mit Gott spricht. Seine Verse sind Ausdruck großer Lebensweisheit und Sinnlichkeit. Beflügelt von seiner außergewöhnlichen, rauschhaften Verbindung mit dem Derwisch Schams - und deren jähem Ende -, besingt Rumi die Freundschaft als Symbol der Beziehung zu Gott und die Liebe als Triebkraft des Universums. Seine große Kunst besteht darin, einen nahezu unerschöpflichen Gedankenreichtum in knappe, klare Worte zu fassen. Voller Fantasie sind seine Bilder, voller Musik ist seine Sprache. «Traumbild des Herzens» bietet eine exklusive Auswahl aus Rumis «Diwan», dem Meisterwerk der persischen mystischen Lyrik.

Ekstatische Liebeslieder an das Göttliche, die die mystischen und heilenden Aspekte der Poesie von Hafiz zum Ausdruck bringen.

Im ersten Band dieser hochkarätigen Gedichtsammlung werden Geist und Poesie des großen Sufi-Gelehrten lebendig: seine tiefe Gottesliebe, profundes Wissen, Großzügigkeit und der spielerische Übermut einer tief empfindenden Seele. Wer Rumi bereits kennt und liebt, findet in Hafiz einen ebenbürtigen Vertreter der persischen Dichtkunst, der uns in überströmender Freude in user eigenes Herz führt.
