What I seek..

Bar har jâ-'ie ke sar naham masjod oust,

Dar shesh jahat -o- buronn-e shesh, ma'bod ouast.

 

Bagh -o- ghul -o- bulbul -o- Sama' -o- shahed,

În-jumleh bahaneh -o- hameh maqsod oust.

(persian) - Rumi

---------------------------------

Wherever I lay down my head,

There He alone is worshiped;

I humbly kneel before His face,

Fulfiling and transcending space.

 

The nightingale, the garden fair,

The idol, and the mystic air --

These are but symbols, nothing more:

Him only seek I, and alone.

I had been uploading alot of nature shots lately. i took all those because nature makes me appreciate my existence and pushes me closer to God (SWT). The blue sky, the chirping birds, the flowers, His color selection, His aesthetic sense is just divine and it inspires all of us so much..then i came across this and everything for a moment turned to dust..Rumi kind of spoke my heart as I was feeling at that particular instance. Ye sab tu bahane hain..ye sab ra'naayan, ye naghmay, ye sab..in sab se hat ker b mein uske jalla jalalahu hone ka qayel hun. Art is only a mere means, it makes you cherish the burning inside. Him only seek I, and alone...
