My heart is the throne of the Beloved,
the Beloved the heart’s destiny:
Whoever breaks another’s heart will find no homecoming
in this world or any other.
The ones who know say very little
while the beasts are always speaking volumes;
One word is enough for one who knows.
If there is any meaning in the holy books, it is this:
Whatever is good for you, grant it to others too
Whoever comes to this earth migrates back;
Whoever drinks the wine of love
understands what I say
Yunus, don’t look down at the world in scorn
Keep your eyes fixed on your Beloved’s face,
then you will not see the bridge
on Judgment Day.
~ Yunus Emre
