Wisdom of the Week

Wisdom of the week #8

In the name of God who is Merciful towards all creation and Especially Merciful towards believers

The one whose heart has been revived by Love shall never die

Our eternal existence is set in stone (Hafez, Ghazal 11)

The true life of humankind is on the basis of their heart. If the heart is alive, the human is alive; and if the heart dies, the human is doomed to death. The life of the human heart is measured by love and kindness. A heart deprived of love is dead. Therefore a person's true life is measured by their heart and the heart's life is measured by love. The love that settles in the heart is proportionate to its capacity. The Heart's potential is great, greater than the heavens and the earth, hence the love through which the heart is alive, must be a majestic reality. Thus, a heart that is revived by love, has an ambition above and beyond the two worlds. Such an illuminated reality is superior to life and death and surpasses all the ups and downs and ebbs and flows of daily life.
