What is the meaning to this quote by Rumi?
Love is also a powerful spiritual force that can alter our lives drastically and lead us on to the path of an emotionally and spiritually fulfilling existence. But in order to unleash the power of love in our lives, we need to remember that material success of love is very different from its spiritual destiny, and in order to understand love, and let it flow in our lives unhindered, we need to delineate our material consideration from spiritual. We need to let our love be, allow it to thrive in its purest, most honest, most natural, most selfless, most spiritual form.
Then and only then, can we experience love to its fullest and harness the spiritual force that it actually is. How we need to let go off the externally imposed, artificially designed understanding of right and wrong to be able to experience the power of this existence, the Universe, our souls as a whole.
The power that is love. But of course, Rumi was a true Sufi, and for Sufis, the only love that matters is the love of their beloved, their Almighty, their God, the Higher soul that is the fountain of all souls.
And for a power that supreme, for the Higher consciousness that created us all, for the Universe that is pure energy and operates in planes that are absolutely beyond our logical, emotional or spiritual grasp, all human ideas of right and wrong are immaterial. Out beyond the ideas of rightdoing and wrongdoing, there is a field… Imagine a love that flows from a source that is nothing but compassion and truth.
Imagine being in love in a way that consumes your existence, and renders everything else, your ego, your identity, your material attachments meaningless. Imagine being surrounded by a light that penetrates your soul and fills your being with such happiness and bliss that is beyond the scope of human vocabulary. Imagine being in love that is so complete, so pure, so true, you cease to desire anything else.
Because it is enough. It is truly and wholly enough. It is the search for this love that makes ascetics out of materialists, and saints out of humans. It is the search for this love that lies at the core of every spiritual quest, and every quest for fulfillment and happiness. It is the love that eludes this world, because only those who choose to surrender themselves to their faith, to the consciousness that lies dormant in their soul, to the God or energy or Universe that lives in their heart, can ever hope to access.
It is a tall order. A nigh impossible feat that is beyond most mortals. Nobody can really achieve this love. Because it is not achievable. All we can do is set out on the quest because the quest perhaps the whole point. In the end, all spirituality boils down to one simple idea.
The search to find that field where rightdoing and wrongdoing no longer matter. It is the field where bliss lives. And love rises and swells and surrounds everything like a gentle, cozy mist.

Rumi gently reminds you that looking for love in all the wrong places might not be the solution that you seek. You task is to find the resistance and the barriers and the walls that you have set up to prevent the arrival and the blossom of love in your life.
Standing in Rumi's Field | | Conscious Bridge
From a place of self-love and self-acceptance, life looks and feels a lot better. Sometimes it is exhausting to carry all the burden of excessive judgment.
When you confront that situation, just take some deep breaths, sit in your favorite seated position in your sacred meditation space and just be.
No judgment of technique. No burden of the right way…or the wrong way. You are the universe in ecstatic motion. I have been there myself… being oversensitive and taking things too personally.
I used to get offended and found it hard to take constructive criticism. As you can guess, I did not learn much that way. Sometimes the greatest opportunities of growth are the ones that you may find most difficult to take favorably. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. When is the last time that you felt like you expressed your authentic self? You are no longer burdened by excessive thought, worried about what others will think, feeling bad, and fearful to take action.
You are ready to fly and as Rumi instructs, you should choose to fly. You can do this by expressing your true potential and not by crawling or living and acting in fear and hesitation. This is a battle I fight almost every day. The choice to fly into my fullest potential even though it is scary but exciting. The choice to cast aside fear, excuses and living in doubt and choosing faith, belief and courage. Is there something that you are just unable to shake off? You have cast it aside numerous times, but it always shows up in the form of synchronicities and obvious messages on the wall?
What you really love is indeed a strange pull, a hunger, a desire that you simply cannot ignore anymore and have to pay heed to its call. I ignored my writing, my desire, and a strong pull to inspire others through gentle suggestions and stories and my deep interest in graphics and layouts and colors.
But many times in my life through unexpected events and synchronicities, I have been pushed into t-shirt design, layout, and copywriting. Somewhere along the journey, I realized that instead of resisting, I should go towards my own strange calling.
Are you answering the strange calls of what you love? My beliefs, my conditioning, and my doubts got the better of me and I stopped short.

I quit, I doubted, I procrastinated, I made excuses and I let go of things before they could bloom into a great possibility. Rumi is right on when he advises you to go ahead and walk on your journey. Even though you may doubt yourself, stay firm in your self-affirmation, make a decision and move forward. There is tremendous power and almost a magical quality to moving forward with a decision well made and firmly planted in your consciousness.
Similar to the proverb that in the acorn lies the promise of an oak tree and a future forest, within the acorn of your belief and possibility lies the real promise of a remarkable adventure. Are you ready to take the first step and move on the way?
It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.
