Divine Flashes

on July 19, 2013
Light

I am Light itself, reflected in the heart of everyone.

I look into the mirror and see my own beauty;
I see the Truth of the universe revealing itself as me.
I rise in the sky as the morning Sun. Do not be surprised
Every particle of creation is my own form.

What are the holy spirits?
– My essence revealed.
And the human body?
-The vessel of my own form.
What is the ocean that encircles the world?
A drop of my abundant Grace; And the purest light that fills every soul?
A spark of my own illumination.

What is the water that grants eternal life?
A drop of my divine nectar.
And the breath that brings the dead back to life?
A puff of my breath, the breath of all life.

I am Light itself, reflected in the heart of everyone.
I am the treasure of the Divine Name, the shining Essence of all things.

From the highest heavens to the bedrock of the earth
All is but a shadow of my splendor.

If I dropped the veil covering my true essence
The world would be lost in a flash of brilliant light.

 

~ Fakhruddin Araqi, Sufi Master (1213-1289)
