(The Wine And The Cup)
This wine which is without limit is the grace of Allah.
The cup of your mind is what stops this wine
from reaching the divinely dark rims of your soul.
Just as moonlight makes the entire horizon
filter through your window,
this cup which I give to you is designed to hold
the loving wine of Eternity.
(Our Soul Was Like The Universe)
Before Allah existed as the Gardener of His Vineyard,
our soul, while intoxicated by His Eternal Wine,
shouted with joy "I Am Supreme."
Before the soul of the universe set forth His Grand Architectural Plan,
our soul was addicted to the wine shop of the realities beyond knowing.
Before the universe was forgotten in Allah's Light,
our soul was the universe, resplendent like the cup of Allah's Sun.
(Return at last)
How long will you forget to keep moving forward?
Stray away from disbelief and become the religion of love.
When in grief, move forward into the gentleness of a dove.
Return at last to the primordial origin of every known origin.
Though you may wander with the belief that you are the earth's child,
you are the Son of the Supreme Pearl.
As a Guardian of Allah's Light,
free yourself from your "I"
and you will soar outside of its thousand prisons.
Though you are a scribe for Allah,
you still want to satisfy yourself with the meager scraps of the "I".
Within your heart you will find your hidden treasure.
By being open to being open,
your inner eyes will permit you to see My Love.
