This beautiful compilation of art and ideology into an awe-inspiring design evokes sentiments at various levels. Art is known to be a form of manifest revolt, total and complete. It is expressed multifariously by Rumi?s quotes and paintings, as it transforms this negative connotation of rebellion into something ethereal. And this is the implication built upon through our unique piece here, that we choose to call VALORIZE.
To give or ascribe value or validity to, one?s convictions by not giving in to the external resistance is what truly should be our mission statement. And to derive the fortitude to pull through till the end of such an odyssey is almost a revelation of self. Hence, the wise words from the spiritually woke Sufi poet Rumi, about pursuing one?s dreams even if it breaks you. Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you love. Or, wash yourself of yourself to find the universe in ecstasy within you. These are inspirations only someone of his greatness could conceive.
Rumi?s poetry speaks of a love that infuses the world. He believed passionately in the use of music, poetry and dance as a path for reaching God. For Rumi, art (dance) helped devotees to focus their whole being on the divine and to do this so intensely that the soul was both destroyed (shattered) and resurrected. It was from these ideas that the practice of whirling Dervishes developed into a ritual form. And it is this very reference to these whirls that are so fast that they cause you to fall apart, that they set you free. Out of his beautifully simple theory that to understand the dance, one must be still, and to truly understand stillness, one must dance, evolved the constructs of profound intangible learning made accessible.
A dance quote from Rumi goes ? Dancing is not just getting up painlessly, like a leaf blown on the wind; dancing is when you tear your heart out and rise out of your body to hang suspended between the worlds.? Rumi paintings also denote the same thing. Rumi?s paintings reveal just one fact that ?we are just the brush in the hands of the Master Painter?.
And through VALORIZE, we at Saans Mart invite you to enamour your home or workspaces with this constant psychic rule to not concede till you evolve. VALORIZE is the symbolic depiction of Rumi?s thoughts and paintings about life and uniting with God.
