Absence Is for Heroes (11/12/17)
Once more, we have given up our heart, mind and soul.
The Beloved has come. We will stay out of the way.
We have turned our back on existence. Our direction is Absence.
We have found the One whose trace is unseen.
We have given up the trace. Continue reading
Union and Separation (9/11/16)
There is nothing remaining in my ears except Love’s murmur.
There is nothing remaining in my soul–no reason, no thought–
only the sweetness of Eternity.

If you become nothing, they will show you without you.

No Belief, No Heresy Remains (10/23/16)
I have been dissolved like salt in the sea of purity.
Neither faith nor doubt remains in me.
No belief, no heresy remains.
A shining star has appeared in my heart,
and the seven layers of the sky have disappeared into that star.

“And We Will Go That Way” (10/2/16)
Rise, O lovers. Let us all ascend to the sky.
We have seen this earth. Let us see the other one.
No, no. Both gardens are beautiful and nice.
Let us give up both of them and go to the Gardener.
The Alchemy of Non-being (7/3/16)
What could a scorpion do to one who drinks Your sherbet?
How could poison affect me when I have reached Your sugar lips?
You are the alchemy of Non-being.
How lucky is that man who is maturing in Your fire.
