For the 305 dead in Egypt.

sufi statue

Killing another human being is not acceptable.

It does not accomplish anything.

It is only a reflection of the mind in pain.

The mind choosing destruction.

The Sufis understand that you can only kill the flesh.

Their light cannot be extinguished.

My Heart has become able

(by Muhyiddin ibn Arabi)

My heart has become able

To take on all forms.

It is a pasture for gazelles,

For monks an abbey.

It is a temple for

My heart has become able

It is a temple for idols

And for whoever circumambulates it, the Kaaba.

It is the tablets of the Torah

and also the leaves of the Koran.

I believe in the religion

of Love

Whatever direction its caravans may take,

for love is my religion and faith.

(English version by Maurice Gloton)
