Sacrifice the soul…

smile

He who has become a lover should never think of his life. Your soul is an obstacle in your way. Sacrifice it. If you are required to sacrifice your faith also, together with your soul, do so by all means, and if anyone brands you as an infidel, tell him that love occupies a position more exaulted than religion, and has nothing to do with faith or heresy. Whoever sets his feet firmly in the abiding-place of love, I transcends the bounds of infidelity and faith as well.
