Finding Ahad through Ahmad, Finding the Meaning to the Form

Finding Ahad through Ahmad
While we linger in this world
Of labels and forms,
Do not be deceived.

For nothing here is He,
Nothing here is He,
Nothing here is He.

Yet nothing here can manifest
Itself in its form without He,
Nothing can persist in its label without He,
Nothing can persist in its illusion without He,

People talk of religion
Of words, labels and forms,
The wise ones are chasing the meaning,
For that is the essence of religion –

To find meaning to the form,
To find the Creator through the Created,
To find the Songwriter through the Song,
To find the Poet through the Prose,
To find the Ocean through the River,
To find the Actor through the acts,
To find the Lord through the Servant,
To find the All-Loving through the Beloved,
To find the warmth in the burning heath
The coolness in the water,
The sweetness in the perfume…

And of course, it is also about finding yourself.

May you have a lovely Monday, sunshine. God bless.
