There is a candle in your heart, ready to be kindled. There is a void in your soul, ready to be filled. You feel it, don't you? You feel the separation from the Beloved. Invite Him to fill you up, embrace the fire. Remind those who tell you otherwise that Love comes to you of its own accord, and the yearning for it cannot be learned in any school.
My dear friend
My dear friend never lose hope when the Beloved sends you away.
If you're abandoned if you're left hopeless tomorrow for sure you'll be called again.
If the door is shut right in your face keep waiting with patience don't leave right away.
Seeing your patience your love will soon summon you with grace raise you like a champion.
And if all the roads end up in dead ends you'll be shown the secret paths no one will comprehend.
The beloved I know will give with no qualms to a puny ant the kingdom of Solomon.
My heart has journeyed many times around the world but has never found and will never find such a Beloved again.
ah I better keep silence I know this endless love will surely arrive for you and you and you.
Look at Love...
Look at Love... how it tangles with the one fallen in love
look at spirit how it fuses with earth giving it new life
why are you so busy with this or that or good or bad pay attention to how things blend
why talk about all the known and the unknown see how unknown merges into the known
why think separately of this life and the next when one is born from the last
look at your heart and tongue one feels but deaf and dumb the other speaks in words and signs
look at water and fire earth and wind enemies and friends all at once
the wolf and the lamb the lion and the deer far away yet together
look at the unity of this spring and winter manifested in the equinox
you too must mingle my friends since the earth and the sky are mingled just for you and me
be like sugarcane sweet yet silent don't get mixed up with bitter words
my beloved grows right out of my own heart how much more union can there be
