Rumi, One of My Favorite Poets

Born in Persia on September 30, 1207, Rumi was a 13th century muslim poet, theologian and sufi mystic.  His spiritual legacy has continued to touch the hearts of many people over the last seven centuries.

Rumi is honored as one whose works have gone beyond the boundaries of cultural differences worldwide.  In 2007 Rumi was portrayed as the most popular poet in America.  His exemplification of his life was awe inspiring.  His message was to live in peace and harmony with one another enlightened in love.  Rumi’s knowledge has connected with the human heart.

The inscription on Rumi’s gravestone reads:  “When we are dead, seek not our tomb in the earth, but find it in the hearts of men.”

May we see the soul of one another and live in pure love, as Rumi lived his life.

Here is one of my favorite quotes by the beloved Rumi…


With much love,



About I am Alice

If anyone would have asked me three years ago if I had ever considered writing books, I would have promptly answered, "No." Today, it is a very natural feeling to write. I suppose since I enjoy talking so much, and I mean a lot, it should not have surprised me! I love communicating through writing as I feel completely united with my soul and my thoughts flow, often times as well as tears as I am altogether emerged in that feeling, in that moment. Check out the "About Alice" page to find out why I titled this site, "I am Alice" and why, "It Feels Good To Be ME."
