From Behind Thousands of Curtains (7/19/2020)

From Behind Thousands of Curtains 7/19/2020

Once my soul had turned its face to the Essence

and given up whys, whats and hows,

it started to see eternity.

The secret of Love and the meaning of creation

which had been concealed from it up until then

appeared from behind thousands of curtains.

Both Worlds Are Submerged in Him (11/24/19)

Both Worlds Are Submerged in Him (11/24/19)

If you want the Beloved to show His face to you, turn inside.

Give up your flesh and walk to the Essence.

He is such an Essence

that He is surrounded by layers of curtains.

He is submerged in His own Being,

and both worlds are submerged in Him.

I Did Not Recognize Who I was (7/21/19)

I Did Not Recognize Who I Was (7/21/19)

At first, like others, I preferred being my self.

Although I was aware of my existence, I did not comprehend my being.

Because I could not see, I did not recognize who I was.

I was merely hearing my name.

Finally, and only when I went out of myself completely, I saw my real being.
