The Red Falcon


Hi All,

Please see this wonderful post by Sonya Kassam over at her blog.  Her blog is filled with her beautiful poetry, observations, and perspectives.

This post is inspired by the recent terrorist attack on the dargah of Hazrat Lal Shah Baz Qalandar in Sehwan.

Until later…




The Heart


Someone went up to a madman who was weeping in the bitterest possible way.

He said:

‘Why do you cry?’

The madman answered:

‘I am crying to attract the pity of His heart.’

The other told him:

‘Your words are nonsense, for He has no physical heart.’

The madman answered:

‘It is you who are wrong, for He is the owner of all the hearts which exist.  Through the heart you can make your connection with God.’

~ Attar of Nishapur
