The things that change are not our real life

by Bawa Muhaiyaddeen


Original Language Tamil & English

The things that change are not our real life.
Within us there is another body, another beauty.
It belongs to that ray of Light which never changes.
We must discover how to mingle with It and become one
with that Unchanging thing.
We must realize and understand this treasure of Truth.
That is why we have come to the world.
Within your heart in a space no bigger than an atom,
God has placed the 18,000 universes.

-- from A Book of God's Love, by M. R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen
