Pearls of Wisdom....320

1. This world is a play ground and death the night
    to which you return empty of purse all worn out.
    The earnings of faith are love and inner peace.
    The flesh craves all that is passing away.
    How long will you covet the vile? Let go.

2. The pleas of the devoted ascend to heaven,
    the smoke of their sincerity ascends to heaven,
    and the angels entreat God in earnest:
    "O You who answer every prayer,
   Your protection is being beseeched.
   Your devotee in utter humility pleads.
   Hear him, Lord.
   He knows only to depend on You.

3. This world is full of remedies. But you have no
     remedy until God opens a window for you.
     You may not be aware of that remedy just now.
     In the hour of need it will be made clear to you.
     The Prophet said God made a remedy for
     every pain.

4. The divine bounty filled him with peace and
    strength, strength that helped him cheerfully
    endure all the afflictions that knocked him

5. Liberated from suffering and search
    I have tied myself to the skirt of God,
    If I fly, I look at the summits I ascend.
    If I go around in circles,
    I observe the axis on which I revolve.
    If I am dragged by a burden,
    I know where I go.
    For I am the moon, and the sun is my guide. [Mawlana Rumi]
