The Master Alchemist

You bewilder us with your grace,

all evils transformed into goodness.

You are the master alchemist.

You light the fire of love in Earth and Sky,

in heart and soul of every being.

Through Your loving,

existence and non-existence merge.

All opposites unite.

All that is profane becomes sacred again.

– Rumi

    Salaam Dear Sister Maliha and Brother Sadiq:

    Maliha, Rumi takes my breath away too. His sublime words ring the bell of God inside of each of us.

    And Sadiq, I do not know who translated it originally. Forgive me, I will try to find out.

    Ya Haqq!

    this poem was Rumi (RA) experience. He was not a poet.. but this was the way he expressed what he saw in his Master.
    I too have had the same experience.. from my very own Master…
    There isn’t a single entity in this whole creation like my Master.He embodies within him love that sustains the universe…
    Pray we all have the luck and grace to experience this…
