The following verses are dedicated to mystics who seek to love God with their whole heart, but who find themselves to be drowning in an ocean of stale religions and denominations.

WHAT SETTLES THE MATTER

Going to MECCA doesn’t settle the matter, even after reciting hundreds of prayers.
Going to GANGA doesn’t settle the matter, even after one is hundreds of times immersed.
Going to GAYA doesn’t settle the matter, even after reciting hundreds of precepts.
Going to JERUSALEM doesn’t settle the matter, even after climbing the Temple Mount hundreds of times.
Going to JORDAN doesn’t settle the matter, even after being baptized 40,000 times.
Going to ROME doesn’t settle the matter, even after performing hundreds of Masses.

What settles the matter is when my heart feels it.

(Sufi verses adapted by Kadmiel Ben Yeshua)
