Wings of Silence

God turns you from one feeling to another …..

and

teaches you

by

means of

opposites,

so that

you will have two wings to fly –

not

one.

Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi ( 1207 – 1273 )

That I Am

And For no reason

I start skipping like a child.

And For no reason

I turn into a leaf

That is carried so high

I kiss the Sun’s mouth

And dissolve.

And For no reason

A thousand birds

Choose my head for a conference table,

Start passing their

Cups of wine

And their wild songbooks all around.

And

For every reason in existence

I begin to eternally,

To eternally laugh and love!

When I turn into a leaf

And start dancing,

I run to kiss our beautiful Friend

And I dissolve in the Truth

That I Am

Whom shall I tell ?

Translation:

by Kartar Singh Duggal

It’s all in One contained.
Understand the One and forge the rest.
Shake off your ways of an apostate pest
Leading to the grave to hell and to torture
Rid your mind of dreams of disaster
This is how is the argument maintained
It’s all in One contained.

He who believes, he alone has known
Everyone else is floundering
All the wrangling came to an end
When Bulleh came to town.
Whom shall I tell?

Bulleya Ki Jaana Main Kaun! – Happy Ho

Syed Abdullah Shah Gilani, known as Bulleh Shah, was a Punjabi philosopher and He was a Sufi mystic poet and is universally regarded as “The father of Punjabi enlightenment”

Love all.
