In Rumi’s poetry, love is the soul of the universe.

Rumi’s poetry has the magical ability to show us truth and to unlock love’s precious secrets. Within the folds of his words, we gain entrance to a hidden chamber; we hear whispers that are ancient; we behold the endless love story between the individual soul and God.

The goal of Sufism is to know love in all of its glorious forms; and every prophet, every practice, and every form of worship that leads toward love.

(by Polly)

LOVE is NOT just LOVE (3): Franz Schubert.

Dr LEUNG Ping-kwan, a poet-professor, said at the Kubrick Poetry Forum, “Poetry is a private matter.”

Schubert's Lied cycles show us how performing arts can add a social dimension to private sentiments. This is Empathy—the first principle of art psychology, or Relevance, if you prefer linguistic term. Please listen to e.g. Erstarrung (Numbness) in Schubert’s Winterreise:

"[…] Wo sie an meinem Arme / Durchstrich die grüne Flur.”

A dramatic character’s private thought can be a matter of communication.

Please consult another poet-professor Dr MAK Su-yin. "Her recent work has focused on the music of Schubert and Schumann..."

LOVE is NOT LOVE (4): Kenneth Clark on Chivalrous Romances & Gestures.

“… even up to 1945 we still retained a number of chivalrous gestures […], subscribed to the FANTASY that [women] were chaste & pure things, in whose presence we could not tell certain stories or pronounce certain words.”

---Civilisation.(BBC 1969: 64. My emphasis)
