Everyone is overridden by thoughts;
that's why they have so much heartache and sorrow.
At times I give myself up to thought purposefully;
but when I choose,
I spring up from those under its sway.
I am like a high-flying bird,
and thought is a gnat:
how should a gnat overpower me?

Inside this new love, die.
Your way begins on the other side.
Become the sky.
Take an axe to the prison wall.
Escape.
Walk out like someone suddenly born into color.
Do it now.
You're covered with a thick cloud.
Slide out the side. Die,
and be quiet. Quiteness is the surest sign
that you've died.
Your old live was a frantic running
from silence.

The speechless full moon
comes out now.

By Allah!
I long to escape the prison of my ego
and lose myself
in the mountains and the desert.

Oh! Supreme Lover!
Let me leave aside my worries.
The flowers are blooming
with the exultation of your Spirit.

By Allah!
I long to escape the prison of my ego
and lose myself
in the mountains and the desert.

These sad and lonely people tire me.
I long to revel in the drunken frenzy of your love
and feel the strength of Rustam in my hands.

I'm sick of mortal kings.
I long to see your light.
With lamps in hand
the sheikhs and mullahs roam
the dark alleys of these towns
not finding what they seek.

You are the Essence of the Essence,
The intoxication of Love.
I long to sing your praises
but stand mute
with the agony of wishing in my heart.

Happy is the moment, when we sit together,
With two forms, two faces, yet one soul, you and I.

The flowers will bloom forever,
The birds will sing their eternal song,
The moment we enter the garden, you and I.

The stars of heaven will come out to watch us,
And we will show them the light of a full moon, you and I.

No thoughts of "you," no thoughts of I,"
Just the bliss of union-
Joyous, alive, free of care, you and I.

All the bright-winged birds of heaven
Will swoop down to drink our sweet water-
The ocean of our laughter, you and I.

What a miracle of fate, us sitting here.
Even at the far ends of the earth
We would still be together, you and I.

We have one form in this world, another in the next.
To us belongs an eternal heaven, the endless delight, you and I.

My, soul said:
They brought me to God's workshop,
Where all things take form, and I flew.
Before this form of mine
even took shape-I flew and I flew.
And when I could fly no longer
They dragged me into this form,
and locked me into this house,
of water and clay.

This is love-to fly upward
toward the endless heavens.
To rend a hundred veils at every moment.
At the first breath, to give up life;
At the final step, to go without feet.
To see the world as a dream
and not as it appears.

Last night I learned how to be a lover of God
To live in this world and call nothing my own.

I looked inward
And the beauty of my own emptiness
filled me till dawn.
It enveloped me like a mine of rubies.
Its hue clothed me in red silk.

Within the cavern of my soul
I heard the voices of lovers crying,
"Drink now! Drink now!"-

I took a sip and saw the vast ocean
Wave upon wave caressed my soul.
The lovers of God dance around
And the circle of their steps
becomes a ring of fire round my neck.

Heaven calls me with its rain and thunder
a hundred thousand cries
yet I cannot hear

All I hear is the call of my Beloved.

I know nothing of two worlds,
all I know is the One.
I seek only One,
I know only One,
I find only One,
and I sing of only One.

Don't think.
Don't get lost in your thoughts.
Your thoughts are a veil on the face of the Moon.
That Moon is your heart,
and those thoughts cover your heart.
So let them go,
just let them fall into the water.
