A description of the experience
Yassawi - from HIKMET 64
A mystic in love, with a soul burdened with suffering,
Causes all eighteen worlds to tremble,
Inner longing gives wings to the bird of the heart,
The whole of-nature will sing like the nightingale.
In the field of love he dies,
Into the field of Ma’rifat he throws himself,
Having drunk the wine of secrets, the spirit of love beckons,
In the-garden of honesty a sweet flower blooms.
Those living in the Lord do not stumble,
"Do not use violence to show strength” said the Lord,
Those following the ways of man, will not maintain the path,
In the Lord's house, all secrets are blessed.
He that is blessed at elixir's fount,
And drinks thereof must serve its secrets onwards,
In the fire of passion, body and soul burn,
The fire within burns bright incinerating all.
