ONEness of HEARTs
VOLUME 1

FOREWORD by Mevlana (Mawlana Jalaluddin Rumi)

9 January 1985

I am Mevlana.
We became fountain from the spring [source],
We keep on flowing.
We greet from heart to heart.
We show
One thousand one word[s] in one meal,
The Beautiful face in each mirror.
We said
Let him/her come,
Let him/her know,
Let him/her take,
We erased hopelessness in His Being.
"Let me take a flower
To decorate my table,"
We said,
We opened our [spiritual] table to each one who wishes;
"Come close friend, come," we said,
"Know the close friend, know," we said,
"Laugh [smile] at the close friend, laugh [smile]," we said.
Let us want ONEness of hearts,
Let us erase "you-I[/me],"
Let us stay in ONEness.
Selam [peace/greeting] is Hak's divine word, [Hak=God]
Let us reach the salvation.
The Creator is Beautiful;
Let us erase our grief,
If we have one morsel
Let us say, "Thank You Allah."
Let us open our heart
To The Creator of you, [and] me,
To The One Who looks after all of us [after all humans],
To The One Who adds coyness to our coyness.
Let us make each moment of our life benefit from
Three advices of His Representative: [His Representative=Prophet Mohammad]
Whatever HE gave/gives, say, "Eyvallah,"
[eyvallah==thank You, I accept without any complaint]
Whatever HE asked/asks, make your repentance be known,
Wherever you see, thank God, thank God. [vision==to see Him in His creations]
The One Who gives [is] Allah,
The One Who sees [is] Allah,
The One Who loves [is] Allah,
The One Who makes [humans] love [is] Allah.
To His close friends, to my close friends
Selam [peace/greeting] Allah,
Selam Allah...

LOVE, SEE & SHARE:

Love all HIS creations;
See HIM in all of HIS creations;
Share HIS Meaning.
