When the eye is pure
it sees purity.
The road your self must journey on
lies in polishing the heart.
No tongue can tell Your secret
for the measure of the word obscures Your nature.
But the gift of the ear
is that it hears
what the tongue cannot tell.
When the path ignites a soul,
there’s no remaining in place.
The foot touches ground,
but not for long.
until you see your self as a speck of dust
you cannot possibly reach that place;
self could never breathe that air,
so wend your way there without self.
Break free from your chains
you have forged about yourself.
The way is long only
because you delay to start on it
Bring all of yourself:
bring only a part
and you’ve brought nothing at all.
Apply yourself, hand and foot,
to the search;
but when you reach the sea,
stop talking of the stream.
Stop weaving a net about yourself:
burst like a lion from the cage.
~ Hakim Sanai ~
Open up your eyes, then you realize,
Here I stand with my everlasting love!
Need you by my side, there’s no need to hide,
Never be denied, everlasting love!
From the very start, open up your heart
Be a lasting part of everlasting love!
You are my everlasting, you are my everlasting love …I love YOU…
— حافظ, The Gift (via auzubillah)
