Peace, one and all…
The sensuous eye is a horse,
and the light of God is the rider:
without the rider the horse is useless.
The light of God rides the sensuous eye,
and then the soul yearns for God.
How can a riderless horse
recognise the signs of the road?
God’s light enhances the senses:
this is the meaning of ‘light upon light’
(a reference to Quran 24:35)
