A benim canim, bu dunyanin diregi gaflettir; uyaniklik, afettir su dunyaya.
Uyaniklik o dunyadandir; uyaniklik ust gelirse bu dunya
alcalir-gider.
Uyaniklik gunestir, umitse buzdur sanki; uyaniklik sudur, bu dunyasa kir.
Bu dunyada umit, haset cosup kopurmesin diye o dunyadan bu aleme birazcik su sizar.
Fakat sizinti, o gizli dunyadan fazlaca geldi mi, ne huner kalir bu alemde, ne ayip kalir.

Bu dunya ile bu dunyanin yolu meydanda olsaydi bile gene pek az kisi bir soluk orada kalabilirdi ancak.
[ I, 2110-11 ]

O sestir her sesin, her nagmenin temeli; ses odur ancak, obur seslerin hepsi o sesin yankisi.

Tanrim, bu feryad edenin elinden feryad; kimsenin elinden degil, bu medet isteyenin elinden medet. Kimsecikten care bulamam; ancak bana benden yakin olandan care bulurum.
Cunku bu varlik, soluktan soluga ondan gelir;
varligim bitince de ancak onu gorurum ben.
Hani birisi, sana altin saysa kendine bakmazsin, hep onu gozetirsin ya, onun gibi iste.
[ I, 2205-8 ]

Kendi cevreni tavaf ettikce; kendini tavaf eder sayilirsin? Dinden donmussen sen; nasil olur da
Kabe'ye varmis sayilirsin? Kendindesin sen.
Verdigin haberlerin, haber verenden bir haberi bile yok. Senin tovben sucundan beter.
A gecmis hallere tovbe etmeye kalkisan,
su tovbe etmekten ne vakit tovbe edeceksin?
Onu soyle.
[ I, 2213-15 ]

Bu dirhem vermek, comerde layiktir;
asikin comertligiyse can bagislamaktir.
Tanri ugruna ekmek verirsin; ekmek verirler sana.
Tanri ugruna can  bagislarsin, can bagislarlar sana.
[ I, 2244-45 ]

Adamlara yillarca yarin-yarin der, vaatlerde bulunur; halk, kapisinda toplanir, bekler; fakat bir turlu o yarin gelmez. Insanin icindeki seyin az-cok
meydana cikmasi icin uzun bir zaman gerek.
[ I, 2288-9 ]

Sivrisinekten tut da file kadar butun yaratilmislar,
Tanri ayalidir. Tanri da ne de guzle bir aile reisi.
Calisip cabalamamizdaki bu gamlar, tasalar,
hep bizim varligimizin zorundan,
dumanindan meydana gelir.
[ I, 2304-5 ]

Tatli yasayan aci olur; bedenine tapan,

"Insanlar icin bezenmistir" hukmunce Tanri bezemistir kadini; Tanri'nin bezediginden nasil kacilir?
Tanri kadini erkek onunla yatissin erkege es olsun diye yaratti; Adem nasil olur da Havva'dan ayrilabilir?
[I, 2434-5]

Kadin. Tanri isigidir, sevgili degil; kadin sanki yaraticidir; yaratilmis degil.

Tanri, onu incitsinler de sinanmayi gorsunler diye giuzlice, cani bedenle birlestirmistir.
Incitenin haberi yoktur ki bunu incitmek, Tanri'yi incitmektir; bu kupun suyu irmak suyuyla birlesiktir.
Tanri, birisinin butun alemin dayanci, signacagi zat olmasini murad etmistir de onun icin bedenle ilgilenmistir.
[I, 2528-30]

Sevgi, acilari tatlilastirir; cunku sevgilerin temeli, insnai dogru yola goturmektir.
[I, 2591]

Eren, zehir yese bal olur; istekli yerse akli-fikri kararir.
[I, 2614]

Sevgi, yalniz dusunce, tamamiyle mana olsaydi namazinin, orucunun sekilleri de yok olur-giderdi.
Dostlarin birbirlerine sunduklari armaganlar bile dostlugu belirten seylerdir.
Bu armaganlar, gizli olan, gorunmeyen sevgilere taniklik etsin diye sunulur.

Peygamber, Tanri buyurdu ki dedi; ben ne yucelere sigarim, ne asagilara;
A ustun er, sunu bil ki ben, ne yeryuzune sigarim, ne gokyuzune, ne de Ars'a.
Sasilacak sey su ki inanan kisinin gonluna sigarim ancak; beni ariyorsan gonullerde ara.
[I, 2664-6]

Gonlundekini gizleme de gonlumdekiler meydana ciksin; gucum neye yeterse buyur, hemen yapayim.

Ses diyordu ki: Comertlik, yoksullari, zayiflari aramakta; guzellerin, cilali, tozsuz-passiz ayna aramalari gibi hani.
Guzellerin yuzleri, aynayla bezenir; ihsanin yuzu de yoksulla belirir.
Bunun icindir ki Tanri, "Vedduha" suresinde "Ey Muhammed" buyurdu, "Yoksula pek bagirma".
[I. 2756-8]

is the support of this world;
spiritual intelligence its ruin.
For intelligence belongs to that other world,
and when it prevails, this material world is overthrown.

O God, help me against this self of mine
that is seeking hrlp from You;
I seek justice from no one but from
this justice-seeking self.
I shall not get justice from any one except from
Him who is nearer to me than  myself;
For this I-ness comes moment by moment from Him.
[ I, 2195-8 ]

You are engaged with going about,
but you are identified with your goings;
and when you come home,
you are identified with coming home.
You, whose knowledge
is without knowledge of the Giver of knowledge,
your repentence is worse than your sin.
[ I, 2204-5 ]

It suits the generaous man to give money,
but truly the generosity of th lover
is to surrender his soul.

you will be given bread in return;

you will be given life in return.
[ I, 2235-6 ]

Look at every animal from the gnat to the elephant:
they all are God's family
and dependent on Him for their nourishment.
All these griefs within our hearts
arise from thr smoke and dust
of our existence and vain desires.

Whoever lives sweetly dies painfully:
whoever serves his body doesn't nourish his soul.

a world within my heart.

is made for the eye of one who sees.

The love of women
is made attractive to men.
God has arranged it: how can they avoid
what God has arranged?
Inasmuch as God created woman
so that Adam might take comfort in her,
how can Adam be parted from Eve?
[I, 2425,6]

Woman is a ray of God
She is not that earthly beloved:
she is creative, not created.

but if the disciple drinks it,
his mind is darkened.

in respect to love, nothing bu forms;
yet, they testify
to invisible love.
