Awakened Heart

Oh Beloved,

take away what I want.

Take away what I do.

Take away what I need.

Take away everything

that takes me from you.

Come, come, whoever you are.

Wanderer, worshipper, lover of leaving.

It doesn't matter.

Ours is not a caravan of despair.

Come, even if you have broken your vow

a hundred times.

Come, yet again, come, come.

Despair Is a Sin

The Prophets said, "Despair is a sin

The grace and benefits of the Creator are infinite."

Many miseries are hard to endure at the beginning

But then they are relieved, and their anguish vanishes.

After despair, many hopes flourish, just as after darkness

Thousands of suns open and start to shine.

Our duty is to resign ourselves and do what God wills.

Do not despair

If the Beloved pushes you away.

If He pushes you away today

It's only so He can draw you back tomorrow.

If He closes the door on your face,

Don't leave, wait

You'll soon be by His side.

If He bars every passage,

don't lose hope.

He's about to show you

a secret way that nobody knows.
