When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy. 

Rumi here speaks of self-care. Engaging in soulful activities that you enjoy brings deep joy, fostering emotional well-being

Death has nothing to do with going away. The sun sets. The moon sets. But they are not gone.

Rumi suggests viewing death or life transitions not as losses but as part of an ongoing journey—offering comfort for mental resilience in grief.

Why should I be unhappy? Every parcel of my being is in full bloom.

According to Rumi, recognizing and appreciating one's inner richness promotes positive self-image, fulfillment, and mental health.

Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder. Help someone’s soul heal. Walk out of your house like a shepherd.

Rumi highlights the significance of support in mental healthcare. Supporting others aids their healing, personally bringing a sense of purpose and positivity.

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about.

This quote speaks to the liberating power of transcending judgment and embracing a space of understanding and connection. This stance offers a profound sense of peace and unity that benefits mental well-being. 

Why do we love Rumi's mental health anecdotes so much?
