Reflections on the last post:

 

Hush

 

for

 

‘Who seeks God, and takes the intellect for a guide

God drives him forth, in vain distractions to abide

With wild confusion He confounds his inmost heart

So that, distraught, he cries, ‘I know not if Thou art.’

al-Hallaj.

 

 

 

 

(al-Hallaj is an ancient Sufi, quoted on page xiv of ‘Contemplative Disciplines of Sufism’  by Dr Mir Valiuddin)
