The self rises, …. kindles, falls, glows, breathes, …. and flies.

” The self rises, …. kindles, falls,
glows, breathes, burns, shines,
walks, …. and flies.

The spaciousness of time is
its arena,

Heaven is a billow of the dust
…. on its road.

From its rose-planting …. the world
… abounds in roses; ….

Night is born of its sleep, …. day springs
from its waking.

It divided its flame into sparks ” ….

 

– Dr. Allama Muhammad Iqbal <3
( from: The Secrets of the Self )
