Longing - A4

Editors' note: Abdullah talks about the sigh of longing, the longing of the spirit to return to its Source. Rumi’s poem 'The Song of the Reed' conveys this longing as does much other Sufi poetry. Through polarity we are all attracted back to our Source, no one can escape this pull. We have the choice of returning knowingly or unknowingly. A longing for God is part of a person’s growth, part of the quest of the lover for the Beloved. Later the person realises there is no lover and no Beloved.
