Reminiscing Istanbul
ANNIHILATION OF PHENOMENA
 
THE heavens and the stars
At the appointed time will disappear.
A wave will strike the earth,
And lo! it vanishes.
Only the Truth will remain Unchangeable.
And you at that moment,
Passing from this dream-life,
With self discarded,
Will be one with the Beloved.
Oh! Master, ponder on your coming and your going,
And the thousand existences that lie before you!
 
THE WRITTEN FAITH
 
READ the writing on your heart,
And you will understand whatever you desire,
For on the day he kneaded the clay,
He wrote on your heart, by grace, the faith.
 
The Secret Rose Garden ~ Hazrat Sa'd Ud Din Mahmud Shabistari r.a
Translation Florence Lederer 1920
