Soul Rise

Marry metaphor to meditation
consummate the same night
give birth to a light worth
more than a hundred prayers and
predictions of a thousand soothsayers
Purity of hearts commensurate to purity of worship
and vice versa
Doesn’t take a saint to figure out (but usually does)
remembrance is what hearts can’t see without
Polished mirror
reflection clearer
presence nearer
Reality of Tawhid?
First achieve unity of self
Inward outward harmony
vanish traces of hypocrisy
Soul traveling two opposite courses
tears the heart in two pieces
– the duplicity of Nufus.

Ruhani cultivation practices
ensures it rises
and rises
until it reaches…
it reaches.
