What is my path?
What is my cure?
He has made you a seeker of Unity,
isn't that enough?
that you may end sorrow forever.
The desire to know your own soul
will end all other desires.
if that aroma fills you with delight
what need is there for bread?
If you have fallen in love,
that love is proof enough;
If you have not fallen in love,
what good is all your proof?
If you are not the King
what meaning is there
in a kingly entourage?
If the beautiful one is not inside you
what is that light
hidden under your cloak?
Can't you see the mighty warrior
standing ready in your heart?
has burned away every veil,
So why do you remain behind the curtain,
scared of what you cannot see? -
Open your eyes! The Beloved
is staring you right in the face!
His light in your heart,
What joy can you find in this world? -
and sweet wine has no taste."
