Bountiful is your life, full and complete. Or so you think, until someone comes along and makes you realize what you have been missing all this time. Like a mirror that reflects what is absent rather than present, he shows you the void in your soul – the void you have resisted seeing. That person can be a lover, a friend, or a spiritual master. Sometimes it can be a child to look after. What matters is to find the soul that will complete yours. All the prophets have given the same advice: Find the one who will be your mirror! For me the mirror is Shams of Tabriz. Until he came and forced me to look deep into the crannies of my soul, I had not faced the fundamental truth about myself: that though successful and prosperous outside, I was lonely and unfulfilled inside.
From the novel ‘Forty Rules of Love’
These Words Pre-written in my Heart – delivered as A direct Message to the soul.
As I read the Message Everything around me moves I become a leaf – that remains static In the windless space.
There is a Void Yet, I am not hungry Nor am I afraid, I remain Empty.
Every time I read I surrender to this Prophecy I resurrect the broken Mirror in my Being Thus spoke the complete Soul.
It is a Winter morning in Summer You are the perfect rescue to my soul, Filling my body with your fragrance Warming my mind with your freshness Bringing my whole existence an ever-new joy There is no present, past, nor future with you There is only timelessness, forever and eternal Thank you, thank you, thank you. As I drink the last sip, permit me to remain with you.
I wept for hours I thought I lost you Wandered hopelessly for months Knowing myself all along deeper and deeper It wasn’t easy but I kept going inwards And I realized, you are never lost nor gained ‘Cause you are what you are And you are me And you reside in my Heart When I sing the song of our Soul, You whisper in unison with me – And ‘God’ is our Orchestra Conductor I love you and I am not deluded anymore.
Peace is my highest deed
If it requests my acceptance, I do it faithfully,
If it invites me to understand deeper, I do it immediately,
If it advises me to do my work and renounce the results, I do it happily,
If it asks me to surrender to the given situation, wow, I do it lovingly,
If it sometimes tells me to give up, sure, why not? – I do it mindfully
With Peace in my Heart, I am truly ‘Home’ and
Home is where I have everything that I truly desire.
