[Sunlight] Recollection of God



If your thought is frozen, practice remembrance of God.
Recollection of God brings thought into movement:
make remembrance the sun for this congealed thought.


In qadar goftim bâqi fekr kon
fekr agar jâmed bovad raw zekr kon
Zekr ârad fekr-râ dar ehtezâz
zekr-râ khvorshid-e in afsordeh sâz

-- Mathnawi VI: 1475-1476
Version by Camille and Kabir Helminski
"Rumi: Jewels of Remembrance"
Threshold Books, 1996

I can give you a treasure for what you've posted here. Meera kabir narsinh is also in the tradition of this love for divinity.
