If I were to fly

I would fly to a place far away

Where I won’t be caged

Into relationships





In every moment,

In every event of your life,

The beloved is whispering to you

Exactly what you need to hear

And know.

Who can ever explain this miracle?

It simply is.

Listen and you will discover it

Every passing moment.

Listen and your whole life will become 

A conversation

In thought and act

Between you and Him,

Directly, wordlessly,

Now and always.

A Beautiful Sunday

Where tea is boiling 

Where books are smiling

Where birds are singing

Where roses are dancing

Where the sun is setting into the orange horizon

Where night blooming jasmines are blooming

Where molvis are calling for the morning prayer

Where monks are humming

Where sufis are whirling

You will find me there

In this vast prison of the world,

The food of true faith is rare;

By the tricks and games of Satan

What there is, is wasted.

Prayers, fasts, and ordeals

Might win us the food of devotion.

Satan will see that he eats it all

Take refuge in God from His Satan!

Satan’s disobedience has killed us!

He may be just one spirit

But satan can enter a thousand beings

And everyone that Satan enters

Becomes a Satan like him.

Satan is in whoever freezes your passion.

The Demon is hidden under his skin.

When Satan doesn’t find a physical form,

He’ll invade your imagination

And make it drag you into evil:

From your thoughts His destruction will stream,

From thoughts even of peace and love,

Or the love of knowledge or of home and family-

No thought is safe from his twisting!

Take care! Say at once, “O God help me!”

Repeat it over and over again,

And not only with your tongue-

From the bottom of your soul
