A Beautiful One from Rabia of Basra

A Vase -Rabia of Basra c. 717-801
I am always holding a priceless vase in my hands. If you asked me about the deeper truths of the path and I told you the answers, it would be like handing sacred relics to you. But most have their hands tied behind their back; that is, most are not free of events their eyes have seen and their ears have heard and their bodies have felt. Most cannot focus their abilities in the present, and might drop what I said.

So I’ll wait; I don’t mind waiting until your love for all makes luminous the now.
