My Religion is Love

spekes-gazelle-tall-grass

My heart has become capable of every form:
It is a pasture for gazelles,
And a monastery for Christian monks,
And a temple for idols,
And the pilgrim’s Ka’ba,
And the tablets of the Torah,
And the book of the Qur’an,
I follow the religion of love:
Whatever way love’s camel takes,
That is my religion and my faith.

 

 – Ibn Arabi
