Ruzbihan Baqli – The Unveiling of Secrets – The Diary of a Sufi Master [translated by Carl Ernst]

119. Dancing like a Drunkard

I saw Muhammad with all the prophets and messengers sitting in meditation on the witnessing of God’s majesty.

I saw Gabriel and all the cherubs meditating on the witnessing of holiness. Then I saw the Truth (glory be to him) manifest himself to them as I described, and I among the Sufis was like a raving drunkard, bringing my face near his power.

He approached me and made me dance, and danced with me, and chose me for that from among them.

When I tasted the sweetness of expansiveness, I was overwhelmed by the shouts of the angelic ones, the cries of the eternal ones, the moans of the lordly ones.
