So Think About… (7/2/17)

Just Think About… (7/2/17)

I have so much excitement in my heart

that it is intolerable even for the sky.

Majnun and Layla* can’t see my exuberance even in their dreams.

All this exaltation is only a small portion of the Beloved’s,

so think about how it is in that heart of His.

*Majnun & Layla  Characters in a famous Arabic love story.

From Words to Ecstasy (11/6/16)

From Words to Ecstasy (11/6/16)

The secret of Truth cannot be understood by asking questions,

gathering information, or spending all of your wealth and belongings.

If you haven’t cried for fifty years with bloody tears, if you haven’t burned your heart out,

you will never find the way from words to ecstasy.
