Then a man came forward. He was a man with a long beard; his long brown hair was swayed by the wind. To Nasheva, the man asked, “O beloved Lady Nasheva, please speak to us of the essence of life.”

Nasheva nodded and gave him a blessing from the distance. She did not respond immediately, but glanced at her right. Then she walked toward a gold jug and two silver cups…

Nasheva heard Mawlana Jalaluddin’s final words reverberating in the horizon of her heart:

“O my beloved disciple, I’ve given you the whispers of my soul,

What was whispered by my soul in tears will be spoken by eternity in joy

Like the earth has trusted the sun and the sun never fails, and so I have trusted you and you will not fail this.

 

“I endeavor not to disappoint,…

It takes only one inhale to take love.

It takes only one exhale to give love.

One who understands this walks toward eternity.

*

Inhale and exhale love.

That’s how one walks towards eternity.

That’s also how one dives into a lover’s heart.

*

Dive into a their heart.

Dive deeper until you reach the core of their heart.

You’ll find something astonishing.

In the library, Adelpha and Nasheva stood side by side. Adelpha knelt to take a papyrus from the third shelve up and showed it to Nasheva.

“It arrived from Athens a week ago, as part of Lactantius’ De Ira Dei[1],” said Adelpha. “Read it.”

Nasheva examined the neatly scripted manuscript that was written in Greek. In there it was written:

Birth is not the beginning,

death is not the end.

They are merely stairways to eternity.

*

Birth is the ladder to this world,

death is the ladder to that other world.

*

Now that you’re climbing the ladder to this world,

hold tight onto it.

Throw your gaze upon life,

and then embrace it.

Smell its fragrance, caress its wings.

*

Life spreads its wings

to give you…

Is purple beautiful?

She said so; he disagreed with her.

Is yellow beautiful?

He said so; she disagreed with him.

Then they walked along the road,

Up the hill, passed by the streams,

still feeling discontent with each other.

Near the waterfalls, they saw a rainbow.

“How beautiful!” both said.

They glanced at each other, smiling,

for in the rainbow they found purp…

An outer journey leads you to faraway lands.

An inner journey leads you to reach the sky.

*

Seek inward,

you will lose nothing.

You will find everything.

*

You’ve been boasting

about your journey to those faraway lands.

It is time for you to

make that journey into your heart.

You’re looking for light in the sun,

when it is actually in your heart.

*

Miles to cover, days to spend.

Look no further.

Your heart is the shell, Love is the pearl.

Break the shell, so the pearl shines.

If the shell doesn’t break,

how can the pearl shine?

*

If the sky doesn’t crack open,

no stars will sprout.

If your heart doesn’t crack open,

how can love sprout?

Hadeel told Nasheva that Rabe’a Al Adawiya was a Sufi from Bashra, Iraq, who was once made a slave and had to do hard labor. One night her master saw Rabe’a was praying. He was astonished when seeing a lantern suspended without any chain above her head. The light coming from the lantern filled the whole house. The following morning he set Rabe’a free, and she lived the life of…
