Concerning Sleep

When I am with you, we stay up all night.
When you’re not here, I can’t go to sleep.

Praise Allah for these two insomnias!
And the difference between them

-Rumi

Rumi epitomised engaged surrender brilliantly this way..

From a human perspective, theres a certain contentment in the realisation that things are as they should be.. as Allah intends.. and the knowledge that thanks are due to Him for all things is a catalyst for soul-enrichment, and for growth.

Sometimes, Rumi has me speechless..
and mosttimes.. i talk too much :)

Heres wishing one and all gardens of grace and contentment.

!You’ve no idea how hard I’ve looked for a gift to bring You.
Nothing seemed right.
What’s the point of bringing gold to the gold mine, or water to the Ocean.

Everything I came up with was like taking spices to the Orient.
It’s no good giving my heart and my soul because you already have these.

So- I’ve brought you a mirror.
Look at yourself and remember me."
