Every part of you has a secret language. Your hands and your feet say what you have done. Every need brings in what's needed. Pain bears its cure like a child.
You wander from room to room Hunting for the diamond necklace That is already around your neck.
There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the ground; there are a thousand ways to go home again.
If love were only spiritual, the practices of fasting and prayer would not exist.
Love rests on no foundation. It is an endless ocean, with no beginning or end.
In comfort and abundance the Friend raised me. With vein and skin He tailored this ragged body. It's just a robe worn by a Sufi, the heart. The whole universe is a khaneqah1 and He is my Shaikh.
If you wish to shine like day, burn up the night of self-existence. Dissolve in the Being who is everything.
There is one way of breathing that is shameful and constricted. Then, there's another way: a breath of love that takes you all the way to infinity.
Where the lips are silent the heart has a thousand tongues.
Why do you stay in prison when the door is so wide open?
Silence is the language of God, all else is poor translation.
Choose to love the one who does not die.
