There is a candle in your heart...

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.

Time to go Home

Late and starting to rain,
it's time to go home.

We've wandered long enough
in empty buildings.

I know it's tempting to stay
and meet those new people.

I know it's even more sensible
to spend the night here with them,
but I want to go home.

We've seen enough beautiful places
with signs on them saying
This is God's House.

That's seeing the grain like the ants do,
without the work of harvesting.

Let's leave grazing to cows and go
where we know what everyone really intends,
where we can walk around without clothes on.

Rumi  or  Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhī , also known as Jalāl ad-Dīn  Rūmī  (30 September 1207 – 17 December 1273), 

For Rumi, reveal the true dimensions of life as he wrote :. 

You are that blessed soul who
belongs to the garden of paradise

is it fair to let yourself
fall apart in a shattered house

you are the bird of happiness
in the magic of existence

what a pity when you let
yourself be chained and caged

Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi." Allah wanted to express His/Her Love and voila creation unfolded and continues to unfold through Love! It is our task to grow in appreciation, gratitude and consciousness of this Love. 

There's no greater reason to be alive.
