Truths of Love (54)

Smash the goblet! Let go of the pitcher!

How long will you remain self-indulgently drunk at love’s banquet?

If you drink wine but never gamble yourself away,

how will you ever cast your self-existence to the wind?

O you brazen one! Reaching out with a rude hand

is not permitted at the table of purity.

If you have indeed abandoned idolatry,

why then do you hold on to all these idols?

You have transgressed as well,

exempting yourself from loyalty!
