Araqi - All is Love

Every word of every tongue is Love telling a
story to her own ears.
Every thought in every mind, She whispers a
secret to her own Self.
Every vision in every eye, She shows her beauty
to her own sight.
Love courses through everything,
No, Love is everything.
How can you say, there is no love, when nothing
but Love exists?
All that you see has appeared because of Love.
All shines from Love,
All pulses with Love,
All flows from Love -
No, once again, all is Love!

Fakhruddin Iraqi, aka 'Araqi (1213-1289)
Persian philosopher and mystic of the Islamic tradition
From "The World's Wisdom,"
