Type of spiritual experience

A description of the experience

The flute of interior time is played whether we hear it or not
What we mean by 'love' is its sound coming in
When love hits the farthest edge of excess, it reaches wisdom
And the fragrance of that knowledge!
It penetrates our thick bodies
it goes though walls
Its network of notes has a structure as if a million suns were arranged inside
This tune has truth in it
Where else have you heard a sound like this?
Listen friend, this body is his dulcimer
He draws the strings tight and out of it comes the music of the inner universe
If the strings break and the bridge falls
then this dulcimer of dust goes back to dust
Kabir says: The Holy One is the only one who can draw music from it

The source of the experience
