About The Book

In referring to form and meaning or the outward and the inward, Rumi employs another set of terms which emphasises the "negative" face of meaning in relation to the "positive" side of form. From this point of view form is "place" and meaning is "No place", form is "colour" and the sea is "colorlessness" For meaning is opposite to form and can only be attained by form's negation, by "formlessness"
"Everyone has turned his face towards some direction, but the saint have turned in the direction without directions." (MV 350)
"In the direction without directions all is spring: any other direction holds nothing but the cold of December." (D 20089)
"He appears to be still and in movement, but he is neither this nor that. He manifests Himself in place, but in truth He has no place." (D 6110)
"You are from place, but your origin is No-place Close down this shop and open up that, shop! (M II 612)
"How long will you give signs? Silence! For that Origin of signs has no sign." n." (D7268)
