My heart is open to all winds..

I am grateful to Zahid Hussein from Islamabad for introducing me to these lines. The Wahdatul Wajood (Unity of Being) school of thought in Sufism is attributed to the musings of Ibn-e-Arabi…

“My heart is open to all winds:
It is a pasture for gazelles
And a home for Christian monks,
A temple for idols
The Black Stone of the
Mecca pilgrim,
The table of the Torah
And the book of the Koran.
Wherever God’s caravans turn,
The religion of love shall be my religion
And my faith.”

(Muhammad Ibn ‘Arabi Mystic, philosopher, poet, sage Spain, 1165-1240)
