“I said to my heart, ‘How is it
My heart, that in foolishness
You are barred from the service
Of Him whose name you bless?’

My heart replied, ‘You do wrong
To misread me in this way,
I am constant in His service,
You are the one astray.’”

—Rumi


“To know the heart in its inmost essence is to know God, and to the degree that one truly knows God, one is not other than He, for a being defined by relativity cannot know the Absolute. To know God, one must ‘become’ God, by ceasing to exist in that mode of being which separates man from Him, or by no longer being defined by the limitations of that state.”

“I gazed into my own heart; There I saw Him; He was nowhere else.”—Rumi
