Rumi and The Night of Power-Ramadan

 

Mawlana Rumi on The Night of Power – Ramadan 

God,
just like the Night of Power,
is hidden amidst the other nights
So that the soul
will go on seeking every night.

Oh young one,
not every night is the Night of Power
And  yet,
not every night
is bereft of the Night of Power


Here is the grace of God.
    hidden in plain sight.

We find God.
    whenever we seek.
God says through Muhammad:
“Seek Me….
    Find Me.”

It is the seeking
that makes every night
Night of Power.
We stand knee deep in the ocean
    lips on the waves
        Dying of thirst.
