Let Your Whole Being Burn Away

Peace, one and all…

One day, this self, and all dear to it,
will be blown around in dust and dirt.
While you still have a chance, offer all you have here,
at this purifying flame, and be cleansed.
Garments torn, heart on fire,
let your whole being burn away in this love.
(Abu Sa`id ibn Abi al-Khayr)
