The pain who give us a reason to live and love…

intersectionsgram2

Whoever received an atom of this pain of Love
For him both yesterday and tomorrow become today
Everything we see is really One
The months, the years are all just a day.
A thousand centuries have passed us by
Yet this pain forever haunts us in the same way
Whoever embarks on the search for a friend
Must burn in this fire and wait;
But each day he burns, is his day to celebrate
I see only an atom of this pain
Whose sweet sting
Has reached the depth
Of everything
This pain is nothing else
That the one that stokes the fire of Love;
This is the pain of that secret
That offers us a reason to live and love

– Farid ud-Din Attar (1145 – 1221) rahimahu Llah –
