Link to Facebook Group: The Hidden Teachings of Rumi

You might ask, what does the “Hidden Teachings of Rumi” mean?

That is the teaching that we cannot grasp by just reading the poetry or writings. It is the difference between the form and what is behind the form. And that is where the inner part of the teachings comes to the light.

And how to grasp the hidden teachings? By taking them within and allowing our higher self to ride on its wave, to feel the breeze of awareness, and the inner current that it brings. This can be done in dream state, in contemplation, or even in our awaking moments. It is by having a relationship with Rumi and other inner masters that the hidden teachings are revealed to us.

I become silent and follow the command to hide this candle.
  The sun and moon became like moths before this candle’s light.
