Can anyone really describe the actions of the Matchless One?
Anything I can say is only what I’m allowed to.
Sometimes the One acts this way,
sometimes in its exact opposite;
The real work of religion is permanent astonishment.
By that I don’t mean in astonishment turning
your back God--
I mean: blazing in blind ecstasy,
drowned in God
and drunk on Love.
--Rumi, 13th century Sufi poet
