The Heart of Love’s Secret Ecstasy
Saturday, December 27
10:30 AM - 1 PM
Imam Bilal will continue with the Prolegemonon, the re-introduction to the 100 Mystical Steps on the Sufi Path of Love, based on Abdullah Ansari.
Know that the world from end to end is a shining mirror
In each atom are a thousand suns.
If you penetrate the heart of a single drop of water
Endless oceans will flow from it.
If you look carefully at each speck of dust
You will see worlds within worlds
In the heart of each grain are a hundred harvests for all seasons
A Heaven is hidden within every eye
The core inside the deepest folds of your heart is small
Yet the Lord of the Universe enters there.
--from The Secret Rose Garden (Gulshani Raz by Mahmoud Shabistari)
