Throw Away This Image (10/7/18)

But, the explanation is the curtain to the Sun of the Truth. Continue reading
Only a Fool Says… (9/2/18)
Union with God cannot be achieved

The road is hidden because of all this heaviness, O son. Continue reading

From Words to Ecstasy (11/6/16)

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.
