The Pathway Finally Opened

by Mahsati Ganjavi

English version by David and Sabrineh Fideler
Original Language Persian/Farsi

When my heart came to rule
in the world of love,
it was freed
from both belief
and from disbelief.

On this journey,
I found the problem
to be myself.

When I went beyond myself,
the pathway finally opened.

-- from Love's Alchemy: Poems from the Sufi Tradition, Translated by David Fideler / Translated by Sabrineh Fideler
