Reach the Beloved

March 13, 2018

O, friend!

Nobody veils you, but yourself.

In your path

there is no thorn or weed,

but yourself.

You asked:

shall I reach the Beloved or not?

Between you and the Beloved

there is nobody,

but yourself.

~Awhadoddin Kermani

(circa 13th Century, Persian Poet and Mystic,

From Mathnavi Misbuhu’l-arvuh,

“Lantern of the Souls”)
