Open Wide Another Soul

~ Open Wide Another Soul ~

Everyone has a higher self,
the breath of the Divine
subtly flowing through them,
do we honor this magnificence
and give our attention to it
instead of dwelling
on faults and mistakes?
By focusing on the best within,
we help the other to awaken
to their pulsating Essence
as well as its expression.
Is your love deep enough
to open wide another soul
while conditioning stifled it?
That would be true selfless love
for the sake of Al-Ahad.

Innermost Conversation

JapansesSittingPosture.jpg

From your lips
to my ears, soft winds
alternate, circulate
then elated, they say:

“my love, we are mixed.
You are honey
I am milk, both
stirring in a bowl,

we feed the poor
inside, the noble
inquirer who longs
for His Paradise.”

(Poem excerpt from Nocturnal Light)

Solely Heart Knows

Solely heart knows
that which I speak of,
this refined language
no tongue can touch.
O Speechless one,
how sweet is your force!

Connections

The heart loves for solely
connections are healing,
they soften the self till
it dissolves in the Unique.

Hussein

Desert_Blossoms.jpg

~ Hussein ~

A cup from the desert’s oasis
brought to the lover’s lips,
lo! The heart sheds tears
for Hussein in his mirroring of
Rasulullah’s compassion
even in persecution~
Tonight, from every particle
in the air, escapes
the Nur of Presence!
O dear ones, let us spread
the healing blossoms that
come through Forgiveness~
