Love

“A life without love is of no account. Don’t ask yourself what kind of love you should seek, spiritual or material, divine or mundane, eastern or western…divisions lead only to more divisions. Love has no labels, no definition. It is what it is, pure and simple. Love is the water of life. And a lover is a soul on fire! The universe turns differently when water loves fire!”

– Shams-e-Tabrizi

It is said that love has a million different faces.
It gets manifested in the smile of a stranger,
The touch of a mother,
The kiss of a lover,
The speech of a beggar,
A bird’s song.

It is the cry of a newborn, the first breath
That each one of us breathes.

It is inherent in nature,
In the gaze of the Beloved.
All we need to do is to let go of our fears
And to embrace gentleness.

Only then can we illuminated by
The light that shines in our hearts.
