* the knock is harder now. It won’t let me sleep.

*will You leave if I turn and sleep

* Will I sleep if I turn away from this knocking

* there is an echo. I have not heard it before. Is it You.
It’s your own heart.

* will You stay longer tonight? I have questions. will You answer them- you have the answers.
I never leave.

* I drown.
‘you drink.’
I sink.
‘You surface.’
I am lost.
‘You will find.’
I don’t understand.
‘That’s when knowing begins.’

*this is a dark night.
‘light it then, with your own light.’ but I left my candle home. and we have walked far from it. Where are we?

*lets look for a stream. I am thirsty. ‘you are not thirsty yet. satiate your hunger first.’ You hand me bread. I take it from You. It crumbles

* here is the water. You hand me a pitcher. I pour it. It’s dry. I look at You and You smile. Master, I protest. You walk on. I follow

*There is no hunger.no thirst now. Only yearning. We walk all night.

* and we walk till the night turns darker and then the night is darkest. My eyeballs ache. I can’t see You. I hear Your footsteps..

*Your footsteps.. You are leading.. No.. I am leading.. You are behind me.Beside me. In front of me. Inside me.

* two sets of footsteps. One set of footprints.

*I am alone. No, I am carrying you

*the Master on my shoulders.. Nay, I in His heart.

*we have reached the end of this path.where will we go now?
‘Take a step and the path will grow from there.’

* walking. This is our game tonight. Walk and invent. Lead or follow.

*you will walk when…

إِذَا الشَّمْسُ كُوِّرَتْ

When the sun is covered (81:1)

* you will walk when…

وَإِذَا النُّجُومُ انكَدَرَتْ

And when the stars darken(81:2)

*you shall walk when…

وَإِذَا الْبِحَارُ سُجِّرَتْ

And when the seas are set on fire,(81:6)

*and you will walk till…

وَاللَّيْلِ إِذَا عَسْعَسَ

And the night when it departs(81:17)

*??am I mad Master??

وَمَا صَاحِبُكُم بِمَجْنُونٍ

And your companion is not gone mad.(81:22)

*walk till I walk.walk beside me so you don’t stumble,You hold my hand..

وَالصُّبْحِ إِذَا تَنَفَّسَ

*And the morning when it brightens,(81:18)

* Shed the body. Lighten the burdens on your soul. Let it breathe so you can

* I am lonely Master.but you are not alone…

* I long to sit beside You and listen to the ocean.ill listen while You speak. We will sit on a bench

* the bench will be in the ocean. but You are the ocean. Then ill place it near You.

*ill throw it away.we will sit on the grass.

*we will sit till the morning dew drops glaze the glades..

*but your ebb and flow will spill onto the grass and it’ll be wet before dawn..

*the spill will fill the grass and the ground.. it’ll become the ocean

*we will swim to the shore. you and I.
You.
I.
You.
Us.

*tired.. I will rest at Your bank till dawn..
at dawn I will sleep.
