The Universe is an expression of Love . . I was a hidden treasure and I longed to be known, so I created both worlds, the visible and the invisible,
in order that my hidden treasure of generosity and loving kindness would be known.

The sun
Won a beauty contest and became a jewel
Set upon God's right hand.

The earth agreed to be a toe ring on the
Beloved's foot
And has never regretted its decision.

The mountains got tired
Of sitting amongst a sleeping audience

And are now stretching their arms
Toward the Roof.

The clouds gave my soul an idea
So I pawned my gills
And rose like a winged diamond

Ever trying to be near
More love, more love
Like you.

The Mountain got tired of sitting
Amongst a snoring crowd inside of me
And rose like a rip sun
Into my eye.

My soul gave my heart a brilliant idea
So Hafiz is rising like a
Winged diamond.

Hafiz - The Gift- translation by Daniel Ladinsky

The Universe is an expression of Love. We live in an ocean of Love . Every being and thing in creation is set in motion by Love

Everything is seeking union with the object of it's desire
And all of these desires are the derivatives of one Love

Love is the motivation behind every yearning
The fundamental Love is the pure experience Being

See how the hand is invisible while the pen is writing; the horse careening, yet the rider is unseen; the arrow flying, but the bow out of sight; individual souls existing, while the Soul of souls is hidden - Rumi

The Spectrum of Love: Eros, Philos, Agape

Strive to discover the mystery before life is taken from you.
If while living you fail to find yourself, to know yourself,
how will you be able to understand
the secret of your existence when you die? - Farid ud Din Attar

Intoxicated by the Wine of Love.

From each a mystic silence Love demands.
What do all seek so earnestly? 'Tis Love.
What do they whisper to each other? Love.
Love is the subject of their inmost thoughts.
In Love no longer 'thou' and 'I' exist,
For Self has passed away in the Beloved.
Now will I draw aside the veil from Love,
And in the temple of mine inmost soul,
Behold the Friend; Incomparable Love.
He who would know the secret of both worlds,
Will find the secret of them both, is Love - Farid ud Din Attar - translation Margaret Smith -The Jawhar Al-Dhat
