Nobody veils you, but yourself

O, friend! Nobody veils you, but yourself.
In your path there is no thorn or weed, but yourself.
You said: Shall I reach the Beloved or not?
Between you and the Beloved there is nobody, but yourself.

    • Dear Ranu,

      Thank you for your visit and comments. I can’t speak for anyone else. For me, however, this realization is far, far away.

      All good wishes,

  1. A brilliant quote Robert. In my poem A Falcon’s Flight (Iqbal inspired) I had written:
    Your inhibitions are in vain
    No one to mock you, nor any to inspire
    Except yourself…
    Wonderful to know Sheikh Kermani through your post.

    • Dear Sonya,

      Thank you for your visit and comments. Yes, I thought of your Iqbalian post. I find great value in that post.

      All good wishes,

      robert
