Absolutely Clear

No matter where you go or who you attempt to connect with, the gnawing loneliness persists. This is good! You are being weaned off of external distractions and temporary solutions for this predicament so that you can face it full-on and burn through it to the sense of unconditional love. There is no master better than Hafiz for explaining exactly how to meet this particular aspect of the dark night. — “The Breakdown of the Mythology of Me”

Don't surrender your loneliness
So quickly.
Let it cut more deep.

Let it ferment and season you
As few human
Or even divine ingredients can.

Something missing in my heart tonight
Has made my eyes so soft,
My voice
So tender,

My need of God
