Whether they know Thee or not
     all creatures of the world
now and forever-without-end
     bend but toward Thee.
All love for someone else
     is but a whiff
of Thy perfume:
     none else can be loved.

Poetry Chaikhana | Fakhruddin Iraqi - Whether they know Thee or not



Well, i guess i said all i wanted to say in the "cut introduction"

I am told that God cannot distinguish between the prayer of Moses and the prayer of an "ignorant" shepherd, because in his eyes there is no difference.

I am told not to judge, not to cling to my preferrences, not to imagine that my will is God's Will.

I am told that the divine is mystery within mystery, that i can know nothing of real importance, i can only love and trust.

But stiill...........

Yes, i do need the mystics and the poets.
