Unity

On Unity's Way:
no infidelity
no faith.
Take one step
away from yourself and --
behold! --
the Path!You, soul of the world,
must choose the road
of Divine Submissionthen sit with anyone you like
-- even a black snake --
but not your self!

(Poet: Abu-Said Abil-Kheir)

Bulleh Shah, a punjabi Sufi poet said in his poetry:


jay rabb milda naataiN dhotaiN
tay rabb milda daddouaN maachiaN nou
jay rabb milda jungul phirai
Natay rabb milda gaayaN wachiaN nou
way Bullayaa, rabb unnaaN nou milda
attay dilaiyan sachiyaN aachiyaN nou

Translation:
If God was to be found through washing and bathing, then He would be found to frogs and fishes..
If God was to be found in jungles and wilderness, then He would be found to cows and buffalos..
If God was to be found in caves(?), then He would be found to bats..
Bulleh Shah!, God is found only to person who have sincerity in heart
