You Were…

You Were…

Wherever I traveled. You were manifested;
Wherever I looked. You were revealed.
In ka’ba, idol-temple, synagogue, and church, I saw
All were searching for You, and to all You were a Friend.
I sought only You in every person I met, every place I went;
You were in every sign, both the outer and the inner.
In the marketplace of love, it was revealed,
You were both the seller and the buyer.
In every heart whispering of love of an idol,
That idol was but a pretext: You were both heart and Beloved.
From pre-etemity to post-etemity throughout the universe,
You were all that was hidden or revealed, bountiful or scarce.
If You have bestowed light and stolen my heart and faith,
This is because You are heart, faith, and the Illuminator of all light.

Paradoxical Times

Paradoxical Times

We are walking our path in paradoxical times. We hear that the world is waking up, yet we read every day that another life or many lives have been taken by senseless tragedies. We evolve with technology yet ponder how to stay connected. We have prepackaged foods yet struggle to take care of ourselves. We…
