POEM OF THE DAY: The Pathway Finally Opened

by Mahsati Ganjavi  (12th century)

 

The Pathway Finally Opened

 

When my heart came to rule

in the world of love,

it was freed

from both belief

and from disbelief.                                      5

 

On this journey,

I found the problem

to be myself.

 

When I went beyond myself,

the pathway finally opened.                   10
