Summary:At the occasion of UNESCO’S year of Rumi (2007), in this article we tried to draw the attention to teaching of this great Islamic poet and thinker about nature, life and love that can be found to have a great significance in our contemporary life and issues that we are facing today within the horizon of modern scientific and technological civilization. This teaching is based upon following premises: Transcendent oneness of being (Tawheed) or monism: There is only one reality as the ultimate source of all the existence. Rumi’s philosophy of evolution is neither mechanicistic nor biological. One can assert that Bergson’s creationistic philosophy of evolution is closer to Rumi’s teachings. In Rumi’s opinion matter is since the beginning and always spiritual. There is no such thing as creation in time, for time itself is created. It is a category of phenomenal consciousness. God reveals his nature primarily through his names and attributes that are disclosed in all their diversity within phenomenal world. Thus, phenomenal world represents dynamic expression of Devine names of power (qahriyya) and gentleness (lutfiyya), greatness (jalal) and beauty (jamal), great secret (misterium tremendum) and fascinating secret (misterium fascinans). Life is found throughout entire existence. There is no such thing as lifeless matter: “earth and water, fire and air”, says Rumi, “are all alive in the eyes of God, although to us they appear dead”. Life is one and it represents oneness. The focal point of all of the Rumis’ work is love. In Rumi’s philosophy love has both, the ontological as well as the ontic meaning. It is at the same time the very secret of life of all the existence and the path to know that secret. Love is the fundamental impulse that is the origin of the unity of the world and life and of all the attractions even those between atoms of which this great poet and philosopher writes in a marvelous manner thus representing the scientific aspect of his philosophy and bringing to our attention the mystical aspects of our modern science.
