A Prayer to the Beloved !
You are the Love, Lover and the Beloved. You made me a lover of Myself by loving me. Love me more in order that I can increase my awareness about you, and so that I can understand You are the purpose of all motion, You are the needs of needs. You are the cure of sorrows, and You are the Beloved of all lovers. Love me more in order that I can fall in love with You more. Love me more so that I can be astonished more. The Candle of Your Love had once said: “To know Yourself is to know Your Lord” You know me as I exist in Your Knowledge as My Being is Your Knowledge of Me. I know You as I know myself. Love me more in order that I can admit my poverty and ignorance and know Myself more – so that I may know You more which has the same meaning of me knowing You more. Make me a candle that is fired by the Praised Sun that You had revealed to him: “And We have not sent you, except as a mercy to the worlds.”
