Mientras continúan las cumbres borrascosas y el viento gélido e inmisericorde barre mis neuronas alegremente, daré la palabra a Bahauddin Valad (1152-1231), padre de Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi.
"Someone asked me what is the knowing I speak of and how does love I mention feel. I said if you don´t know, what can I say? And if you do know, what can I say?
The taste of knowing love has no explanation, and no account of it will ever give anyone that taste."
"God buys the essence you offer in exchange for the Garden of Eden (9:111)
I buy your kindness, your unselfish impulses, not those around you. Did you expect them to be interested? Do you want two buyers, myself and others? Whatever you do to be popular is a waste of time. They see, then turn away. Does that make you sad? Don´t be. I am the only buyer you will ever have."
Y por si fuera poco:
"By the One who set the earth with rivers pouring through in mist below the mountains, and two oceans with a strip of land between (27:61), we move the elements into various shapes without their consent, but human beings, unlike the water and trees, have a choice. They are given dignity, discernment, and the evolutionary wisdom that can move from death to new life, again to die and be restored on another level of existence. You have many choices about the ways you live and work and change and survive. Say you fall into an ocean. You may give up and sink, or you may try to swim to shore. Salvation is your decision."
Amén y buenas noches.
