Esoteric Heart Series
"The road your self must journey on
lies in polishing the heart.
It is not by rebellion and discord
that the heart's mirror is polished free
of the rust of hypocrisy and unbelief:
your mirror is polished by your certitude-
by the unalloyed purity of your faith.
from your chains you have forged about yourself;
for you will be free when you are free of clay.
The body is dark- the heart is shining bright;
the body is mere compost- the heart a blooming garden."
~Hakim Sanai, "The Walled Garden"
