On Affection

Sometimes  you stumble upon such profound words that it seems  His Friends are greeting you upon the very path you tread.

And so it was that I encountered the great Shibli, may his soul be sanctified.  He said to those who claimed to love him,

Did I hear you saying that you loved me? You could not even bear my throwing a stone at you, and you began to run away.  What became of that sincere love that you had for me?

Journey with heart then, O seeker.  And endure patiently.   Perchance, you will be rewarded with His  Love.
