The Divine Call

Rumi Meditatinh=g KIT

Don’t sleep for just one night, my beautiful friend.
And the treasure of eternity will appear before you.
The sun of the invisible will warm you all night.
The collyrium of mystery will open your eyes.
This evening, I beg you, fight against yourself, don’t sleep.
So you will discover those splendors that spread ecstasy.
It is at night that beauties unveil themselves.
The one who sleeps never hears their soft calls.
Wasn’t it at night that Moses saw the burning bush
and heard its miraculous sermons to come closer?
It was during the night he traveled so far
that he came to see a bush drown in glory.

The day’s for earning a living, the night for love.
So the eyes of the jealous cannot spy on you.
The rest of the world may sleep,
But real lovers throughout the night talk inwardly with God.
All through the night, God is calling us.
Rise up!
Use this time richly, you poor man.
If you don’t, you will burn with regret.

Rumi
