The dervish is a fertile field
cultivated by Divine Power.
Advancing step by step
through seven stations of wisdom
along the way both arduous and joyful,
making every sacrifice,
the dervish completes this steep path,
this royal road.
The leap of the dervish
is the radiant storm of love
filled with exultation.
This heart becomes exposed
to the splendor of Divine Light.
Each breath becomes an offering.
The dervish is a mystic bride
promised to the Supreme Beloved
Who abides deep within all hearts.
This leap is the wonderful wedding
of the soul with Divine Tenderness,
Who surpasses all imagination.
The eternal spouses, lover and Beloved,
now enter the Paradise of Unity.
This is the astonishing matrimony
between our human reality
and the Source of the Universe,
mystically consummated on earth.
