"I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being."

"The path to the Truth is a labour of the heart, not of the head. Make your heart your primary guide! Not your mind. Meet, challenge and ultimately prevail over your nafs (fears, worries, doubts, attachments, etc) with your heart. Knowing your ego will lead you to the knowledge of God."

If you want to strengthen your faith, you will need to soften inside...
For your faith to be rock solid, your heart needs to be as soft as feather.

I once asked a bird, how is it that you fly in this gravity of darkness?
She responded, 'love lifts me.'

Hafiz, a Sufi poet, expressed in poetry love for the divine, and the intoxicating oneness of union with it. Hafiz, along with many Sufi masters, uses wine as the symbol for love. The intoxication that results from both is why it is such a fitting comparison. Hafiz spoke out about the hypocrisy and deceit that exists in society, and was more outspoken in pointing this out than many poets similar to him.
