Wisdom of the Week

Wisdom of the week #24

In the path of love, calamity is safety and comfort.

Be sore that heart that seeks a cure with Your pain! (Hafez, 470:5)  


People are usually after convenience, that is why so few of them have the heart to throw themselves into the sea of love. Love is a resurrection in the depths of a human’s existence. Humans have not come down to an eventful, earthquake-prone piece of land to rest and sleep. When a prophet was sent on a mission, it was to resurrect the people who had fallen asleep. When the Great Resurrection comes, it will be the rebirth of the people in sleep. When spring comes, it will be a revival of nature. Likewise, love is a resurrection. In the path of love, lovers get on their feet with their entire being and devote all their wealth to the Beloved. Those who fall in love with God will experience a resurrection even before Resurrection Day comes.
