Not Two but One

Not Two but One

Rumi drank
Shems drank
Both began to whirl
gradual and steady
speed altered
Spinning until all that existed vanished
Rumi and Shems spun in ecstasy
Drunk in love
The sema carried on the night through
Dawn exposed their frantic state
Both fused
Now only one
One body
One soul
One heart
Not two but ONE

Mirrors

Friends of the Way
I found you along the way
We’ve shared and discussed our heart’s dismay
Through your company bolted doors were made ajar
As Zulaikha’s passion, as Shirazi or Attar

A version of white sorcery
Your silence in friendship was surely no trickery!
As I burnish and rays strengthen
The lotus in you begins to open
Our bond increases
You begin to share, to unveil
The Secret Stare
You turn and begin to burn- while I glare
We take turns to burn
Is it an irony that we feel the same?
No! Surely this is truly a lovers’ game

In a shower of gentle raindrops
We dance in puddles of reflection
Surrounded by His mysterious protection
Unaware of who is who
Master-Student
Student-Master
Loved- Beloved
Beloved- Loved

Gaze down now to view the reflection
A peek at the height of love’s perfection
I see Me
You see You
We see Him
How could this be?
As in reality we only see ONE imagery!
We’ve unlocked the key to our own Mystery
Our Unity
The Truth WE see
Not Blasphemy.

The Eternal Wedding

We Wed in Eden!

Is Love the hardest thing to let go of?

A rank more exalted than a Lion’s Heart?

 

When your love is solely for soul’s sake;

When your love is for Light’s sake

To love Its beauty, an endless mystery

Know this is Real Love,

Eternal Love.

 

In that Love you see yourself, the Light and multi reflections

Know nothing but Love

Blinded by it

Name it Supreme

Then rest  assured;

Your soul has ‘wed’

‘Letting go’ is temporary divorce;

An earthly separation.

 

The soul has family

Close and distant

All related through the Spirit

Through rays of Light,

Beams of Love.

 

Dismiss the physical separation!

This is an order

OBEY.

Establish real connection of heart and soul;

The secret of eternal communication

The path to constant presence with no such thing as letting go!

 

This wedding was an eternal ceremony

A Grand Wedding unlike the rest

A marriage to last till time infinity

All guests in attendance,

Your real family

Wed in spirit

 solemnizing eternal vows

In the Garden of Eden they drank and rejoiced

On earth they reminiscence that joyous occasion

Each member met represents another anniversary!

All made aware, ‘We all were there’

All mutually longing eternal company once again.

 

Ultimately you shall realize

No separation between Us

No You or Me

But We were One

From  time infinity.

A River Named Love

A River Named Love

There is a river named Love

Upon its banks lovers reside

S e p a r a t e d and United by Love

All in love.

 

Desiring union they yearn daily

This river is food and drink

Their Fountain of Eternal Life

Lovers must unite!

 

‘How shall we reach our beloved’s gate?’

Frantic and mad they wail in haste:

“This mighty river has split one heart!”

Recalling Khidr’s auspicious advice;

‘One must take the leading plunge…’

‘The other shall mirror in unison’

‘Never again to depart’

‘Never again to say good bye’

Together in this river they delight.

 

United at last

Shackled by chains

Drifted by vicious currents

Into the Eternal Ocean of Love

Swim together upon the waves

Drink together the eternal drink

Drown together in eternal Love

Live together in eternal Light.
