Peace, one and all…
I found some very profound and beautiful sayings/poetry attributed to the Christian saint Isaac of Nineveh (see here too). As such, I wanted to share them with the wider world. May Allah bless all who pass by.
then heaven & earth will be at peace with you.
Enter eagerly into the treasure
house that is within you,
And you will see the things that are in heaven,
for there is but one single entry to them both.
The ladder that leads to the Kingdom
is hidden within your soul…
Dive into yourself and in your soul
and you will discover the stairsby which to ascend.
And here are a couple of pithy sayings attributed to him:
Walk before God in simplicity, and not in subtleties of the mind. Simplicity brings faith; but subtle and intricate speculations bring conceit; and conceit brings withdrawal from God.
A small but persistent discipline is a great force; for a soft drop tailing persistently, hollows out hard rock.
