United in soul


"You are asking me to stay. But if I was here for 20 years instead of for 20 days and it would end today, it would be the same. No one is together forever. We all go different ways one day. We can continue in our hearts. We are always together in our souls, even if it is not physical."
- Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani (1922 - 7 May 2014)

Yes, we all go different ways, one day. Sometimes, the one leaving is eager to go. Sometimes, the one that is being left, refuse to let go.

Sometimes people cling to a status quo for convenience sake because the ego cannot detach from familiarity. Some people need to cling on physical terms even if they are not connected in the hearts. Some people may be apart, yet they are united in their souls.

Be of a free spirit. Roam beyond boundaries. Be not a love-beggar of a mortal. Be fed with infinite love of an immortal. Make yourself free and rejoice because your Maker loves you more in a moment than anyone could in a lifetime.

Only when we depart from the finite,
can we arrive at the infinite. 
In the ocean of infinity,
we shall mingle again,
you and I.
