Feast of Light

dervish_love

For a month eyes will be shut to the external world so the self grows more aware of the Breath’s nourishment. The material dimension loses its grip on the soul that seeks to be with the Presence~ to be beyond all that is not, la ilaha illa Allah! Colors, scents, suras will be nutrients to the selfless self that dances with the prophets (as). The sweetness of Returning supersedes the one of not owning anything~ We are Poor for the sake of True Wealth, say:

Bismillah,
my love, the Moon is out,
come sit at our table,
the feast of Light
is starting tonight!
