Truths of Love (9)

O heart, how conceited you are about your knowledge!

Beware! Love is the true way.

Only when you give up “I” and “we” in tribute

will the Beloved lay down His head in reconciliation.

Your knowledge will be completely transformed into vision

when your self-existence is plundered.

Never will you see the Beloved

until you expel all but Him from the heart.

No one can enter the Beloved’s abode,

just as a piece of wood cannot reach the depths of the sea.
