“Aid us to become seas surging with the billows of Thy wondrous Grace, streams flowing from Thine all-glorious Heights, goodly fruits upon the Tree of Thy heavenly Cause, trees waving through the breezes of Thy Bounty in Thy celestial Vineyard. O God! Make our souls dependent upon the Verses of Thy Divine Unity, our hearts cheered with the outpourings of Thy Grace, that we may unite even as the waves of one sea and become merged together as the rays of Thine effulgent Light; that our thoughts, our views, our feelings may become as one reality, manifesting the spirit of union throughout the world. Thou art the Gracious, the Bountiful, the Bestower, the Almighty, the Merciful, the Compassionate.”
“The days of fasting have arrived wherein those servants who circle round Thy throne and have attained Thy presence have fasted.”
fiona gohari-aazami/left (sydney, australia): Morning comes. With fear she wakes us up. With horror she places the sleep within our eyes. Our sight is blinded with apprehension. We wade through a world, overgrown with confusion and doubt.
We try to find God in every thing, but ourselves.
The heaviness of the early morning dew rests against a trembling heart.
But the ocean blooms as it bursts from its Yellow into our hearts like the breath of Jupiter. The weight of Your words are like planets within the safety of our pockets. The ventricles of our hearts are engraved with Your name. And the Sea, she releases us. Every night. She whispers, we listen.
And we grow.
adib roy/right (charleston, usa): I love the fast. How blessed are we to have this bounty. Its just like “Spring cleaning”, but for the soul!
