Rumi believed that the entire universe is created from one source. He said that the source of consciousness runs through everything in the universe.
Rumi as a religious scholar, quoted this verse from Quran.
“The God proportioned you and breathed something of its spirit into your soul.” Quran 32:9
Rumi’s belief in universal consciousness and divinity within is the inspiration for his poetry. We can’t have a meaningful understanding of Rumi’s poetry if we do not understand Rumi’s Philosophy of universal consciousness as a source and everything in the universe as a part of that source.
The big bang initially created a few elements like H, N’ C. These atoms later became the source of creation of everything in the universe.
The big bang theory didn’t exist seven hundred years ago, but it seems that Rumi’s philosophy of universal consciousness was the basis for this idea of universe creation!
“Consciousness sleeps in minerals, dreams in plants, wakes up in animals, and becomes self-aware in humans.”
