Go sweep out the chamber of your heart.
Make it ready to be the dwelling place of the Beloved.
When you depart out, He will enter it.
In you, void of yourself, will He display His beauties.


-Mahmud Shabistari.

Mahmud Shabistari d. 1340


What are "I" and "You"?
Just lattices
In the niches of a lamp
Through which the One Light radiates.

"I" and "You" are the veil
Between heaven and earth;
Lift this veil and you will see
How all sects and religions are one.

Lift this veil and you will ask --
When "I" and "You" do not exist
What is mosque?
What is synagogue?
What is fire temple?

What is seen is not the Truth
What is cannot be said
Trust comes not without seeing
Nor understanding without words
The wise comprehends with knowledge
To the ignorant it is but a wonder
Some worship the formless God
Some worship His various forms
In what way He is beyond these attributes
Only the Knower knows
That music cannot be written
How can then be the notes
Says Kabir, awareness alone will overcome illusion

Kabir

Watching my hand: He is moving it.
Hearing my voice: He is speaking...
Walking from room to room...
No one here but Him.

-Rumi

I haven't acquired my faith
in the power of the soul's beauty
through idle chatter.
I became his believer
only after I became my own infidel.

How long are you going to go on praising him?
He is beyond praise.
Enough. Be silent.
I go to my ecstasy.


Rumi

We carry inside us
The wonder we seek
outside us.

"There is an ocean of vast proportion
And she flows within ourselves
To take dips daily we dive in gaily
He knows who goes within himself
The abode of Angels, the mystical Promised Land
The one and only Heaven, the God of man
Is but the closing of an eyelid away"

Earning thousands, we chase millions,
In pursuit of wealth, we are never content.

Countless hollow delights beguile us,
But discontented, we die in pain.

Without contentment, we are never fulfilled,
Like vapid dreams, our goals and efforts are in vain.

Guru Nanak
