FREE YOURSELF FROM BONDAGE
If you can love Me, love God. Your love will make you know Me. If you can make others happy through your love without seeking your own happiness, you can free yourself from this bondage. You can then find Me as I really am. No sooner do you get that Experience then you feel liberated and experience infinite Bliss.
Keep your faces turned towards the Sun of Truth and your shadows of individualised Maya will lie behind you, and though 'still existent, will have no power over you. But if you turn your backs to the Sun your shadows will be before you and you will be following them. Although by yourselves you cannot get rid of your shadows, if you turn your backs on them and keep facing the Sun at the time of His full ascendence and glory, your shadows will disappear forever.
One who knows the Koran by heart is called a Hafez. Such a one's heart and soul are dedicated to the service and thoughts of God alone... Hafez was spiritually inclined from an early age, and became the disciple of a Perfect Master, Attar, who himself was a great Persian poet. Hafez visited Attar every day for many, many years. He wrote ghazals and recited them to his Master. Attar enjoyed these ghazals and gave them to his other disciples to study and benefit by them, saying that Hafez's ghazals would be of the utmost importance to the future generations.
