“God”

As translated from Discourses of Rumi by Fatemeh Keshavarz:

When His light shines — without a veil — neither the sky remains nor the earth, not the sun, nor the moon.
God embraces all…there is nothing that is not a part of him already.

Remember God! His remembrance is the strength in the wings of the bird that is your soul

The souls of all friends of God are connected with one another

You must seek anything that you wish to find
Not so with the Friend…
You begin to seek after you find him

Listen to the poem read in Persian:
