Man’s Heart is Like a Candle (6/25/2023)

Man’s heart is like a candle; It should be lit and allowed to shine.

There is a void in your soul because of the separation from the Beloved.

That void needs repair.

Know, O ignorant one

who knows none of what makes or breaks a heart, who avoids pain and burning,

Love is something to be encountered, not knowledge to be learned.

Rubailer (2016), Rubai  4, page 468
