Friend of the Beloved

1.A friend of God must have a affection like the sun.
The sun uses its beneficial effects to all.
All persons derive heat and light from it ,irrespective of whether they are Muslim ,Hindu,Sikh ,Christian etc etc

2.A friend of God must be generous like an ocean or a river.
We all get water from the river or sea to quench our thirst.
No discrimination is made whether we are good or bad,
or whether we are a relation or stranger.

3.A friend of God is one who has the quality of hospitality,
like the earth.We areraised and cradled in its lap and it is always spread below our feet.

The noblest of character is possessed by one who is;
a.bountiful in poverty.

b.content in hunger.

c.cheerful in grief.

d.friendly in hostility.


In the swinging of the branches,in the flying of the birds,
and in the running of the water ,
Beloved ,I see Thy waving hand,
bidding me good bye.

In the cooing of the wind ,
in the roaring of the sea ,
and in the crashing of the thunder,
Beloved ,I see Thee weep and I hear Thy cry.

In the promise of the dawn,
in the breaking of the morn ,
in the smiles of the rose,
Beloved I see Thy joy at my homecoming.
