22. The Antechamber
Words are clumsy tools for expressing ideas,
And a mind cannot bear the transmission of belief.
It is the heart, the hidden heart, the Antechamber of the Throne
Wherein love is communicated and affirmed.
And where there is love, O’ seeker,
There is always belief.
Illahi Anta maqsudi wa ridaKa matlubi.
("O my God, You are my Goal and Your Good Pleasure is my Aim.")
When you are in love, you don't even have to say anything. Your eyes meet, and you know the swiftness of your lover's affection, or his/her anger. When you look at your children or your parents, how can you really put into words, years of your life with them? Your gratitude to your father and mother, and your almost painful yearning for your children to fulfill their manifest promise and good fortune? I felt that as I was dropping off Mikhail at the school gates about 30 minutes ago.
At the most intimate of moments, words become useless and it is your heart which is the proper forum of love - that most Divine gift of God to Man. Illahi Anta maqsudi qa ridaKa matlubi...
Have a precious day, sunshine. Follow your heart.
