Become lover. Think both the worlds beauty of the Beloved and think own self the beauty of the Beloved.
Search your heart within where lies the key to all Divine mysteries, and where God has placed treasures of Divine, mystical and spiritual powers.
Devotion to God and service to fellow beings is the pivot of life.
When His (God) beauty has permeated in each and every iota of the world, why should I sit like an ascetic (hermit) in a corner!
O the people of faith, when you open inner eyes, you will see beauty of the Beloved, radiant eberywhere. In every mirror you see Him. In every color of His manifestation you will notice fire of His love.
