Our Jar Cannot Take Any More (4/15/18)
People were born from the Sea of Soul like water birds.
How do those birds which come from the sea make this place their home?
We are engulfed by the soul’s sea with every breath we take.
If it were not so, why do the waves come one after the other from the Sea of Heart? Continue reading
Your True Thirst (4/8/18)
You eat kebab and drink wine.
But, know this well: You are eating and drinking in a dream created by you.
Once you wake up, you will still be hungry and thirsty.
The water you drink in your dream will never satisfy your true thirst.

Eternal Sovereignty Has Come (4/1/18)
Blasphemy is dressed in black. Divine light has come.
They are beating the drum of immortality. Eternal sovereignty has come.
The Earth has become green. The sky has torn its cuff and collar.
The Moon has split in half once more. Pure soul has come. Continue reading
Your Being is the Curtain (3/25/18)
If you become prey to God, you will be freed from sorrows.
If you run after your desires, you will stay a slave to your self.
You should know this very well: Your being is the curtain that conceals God from you.
Don’t stay with your self. If you do, you will be hurt time after time.

Break the Glass of Duality (3/18/18)
Thanks to Union, my soul and your soul have become one.
These souls are exactly the same, so nothing should remain but the one.
Because of bad habits, our souls were born from wind’s fire,
then started blowing in our heads. Continue reading
It Should Be Lit (3/11/18)
Man’s heart is like a candle: It should be lit and shine.
There is a void in man’s soul because of his being separated from the Beloved. That void needs to be repaired.
Know, O ignorant one who understands none of what makes or breaks a heart, who neither smiles nor cries,
Love isn’t knowledge to be learned, but something to be encountered,

There Is Always a New Day (3/4/18)
I am Joseph of Canaan.
My face like the Moon is the witness to that,
although no one has asked for proof, for a witness from the Sun. Continue reading
As Long As Water Flows (2/25/18)
You are satisfied, but I haven’t had enough of this drink.
I am annihilated, but you are still alive.
The millstone turns and cries quietly
As long as water flows through the canal.

See Absence (2/18/18)
Don’t be deceived when destiny raises you high.
Don’t brag, because before you are dropped by destiny,
you must first be raised. Continue reading
You Will Never… (2/11/18)
You will never taste ecstasy as long as you are sober.
You will never know the soul if you stay attached to your body.
You will never reach the Truth
unless you are annihilated like fire and water thrown together
on the way to the Beloved’s Love
