Rumi is known for a lot of his works but this particular one is more famous among his readers. This one has a rather simple message as compared to all others there. All it says that people have built a lot of barriers against love and all we need to do is to remove them and we will be happy and loving again. Our wok is not finding love, it is finding the barriers and love will find us.

When a lover is tied by his social boundaries and can not achieve his love. He calls for her and says there is a word, far away from these boundaries. Where the grass is green and there are no limits and definitions. It is there that he will wait for her. This definition of pure and pious love has stayed over ages among people and has created a perfect world for lovers.

Rumi was the epitome of the love of his era. He loved people, he loved the nature and he loved the animals alike.  His words resonate through ages. And as would Rumi say
Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.
