The journey begins…

He greeted me with his usual happy smile, though it was obvious how tired he was, how fed up of his surroundings he became with each passing day. He came near, and shook my hands, and right there, my rising struggle began to stir, the clash that I was oppressing for some time now was about to happen. Needless to say, how I missed him, how I’ve been thinking about him all these weeks, I casually asked him how he’s been, suppressing the words, letting them choke me, making a lump in my throat. I looked in his eyes, and my head whirled, like the dervishes of the mevlevi order, my insides began to turn, at the beginning of my internal Sema, my soul was shut, as if holding itself crosswise, so closed, unwilling to open up to my feelings, to the way I’ve felt all along, I did not want it to happen, and control I shall have over it. While whirling, I felt everything inside me open directed to the sky, ready to receive what was to fall upon me. Revolving from right to left around my heart, I embraced all that surrounded me with love, I did not fight it anymore, my love was so intense to shut down, it was pure, honest and selfless. The human being has been created with love in order to love. On the last “selam” or greeting, before I left, was the rapture of my Sema, dissolving into complete love and the sacrifice of the mind to love. It was complete submission, unity, and an annihilation of myself, one pure ecstasy or a state of nirvana.

And so, the journey continues…
