The Solitary Traveler

 

The lonely traveler

It was night

Men of God

Were offering water on the altar of love


Were singing song of freedom

Breeze

The scent of flowers blossoming in lovers' heart

Took this way and that

Time was for mortals of being

And for Malakootians (Malakout is a level in mysticism after the Nasoot, which means approaching Allah) of nothingness


Angels each high in stature

In God-seekers ' solitude

Them in high regard and respect they held

Darkness of night

Has closed the way to the dark-hearted so that

Divine Truth-seekers

Find the light in boundless horizon of heart

The (spiritual) movement of the lonely traveler

From Malakoot

Through the tunnel of occurrence

Beyond time and space

At midnight of Monday in

Horizontal line of day

On the earthly hemisphere

In Hoo (One of the names of God)'s number

And in the spring of nature

In divine intuition of numbers of four

In one part of the earthly sphere

At the end of desert

In the foothill of north Alborz (A high mountain in Iran)

The point where the voice of desert's night falls

At the gate of north and south magnetic waves

In the land of mystics and divine-lovers

In the ever-known land of Mahdi (The last Imam of Shiite which is believed to reappear and save the world) starts …

By the break of day

Waves of physical soul (A soul or Nafs that can't be trusted. It is a means for Devil to take control of human and make him commit sins).

Penetrates into the depth of human cells

Wondering frequencies of physical soul

On the nerves and soul

Had adverse effects

Sun

Was shinning from the east

Leading energy

Keeping

Warming

From the temporal sun

Was spreading out on the aquamarine and brown mountains

Sunshine saying the name

Of God

Was dancing (spiritually) clearing shadow of the towering mountain

Rifts by receiving energy from the sun

Lived on

Pleasure-seekers, despite the light

Were still imprisoned in the darkness inside

Karoobian (People who are in constant spiritual love with God) along the same line with light

Lived on their spiritual life

Mountains

Praising God from night to dawn

Malakootian

Happy with night

Started their fast (A religious act) with crying

Angles

Each in a special temporal place and time

Were doing things in the placeless of Jabarout (The world of angels)

But …the lonely traveler

From the inner darkness

Had come to the dark-house of the temporals

His spirit

Was an example of this holy verse of Koran, "I (God) have breathed into you of my spirit."

Body from His father and mother's loins

Traveler's spirit

Disliked uniting with body

God's will was this

In dark-house of earthly world he

Climbs the peak of cognition and lightness

Angels talked about the spiritual life of body and spirit, mortification and (spiritual) perfection

The traveler laughed

The traveler expressed pain and torment, sin, disobedience, guilt, and the spiritual veil, and then cried with angels

Happiness ascended the throne of the family

Older brother had a companion now

Father in loneliness

Praising God

In harmony with nature's praise

Was spending his life

Father at night

Along the same path moved with stars

And the nightly prayer

Whispered under the moonlight

Night's silence

Was broken by (God's) praise-voice of particles in nature

And frequencies were doing there duties

The voice of (God's) praise

Of plants, animals, and inorganic particles

Was pleasant to ears

Father was unaware

An envoy from the faraway land had a message

That your wife gave birth to a son

Father

On the mountain-slope to thank this blessing


Raised his hands high towards God

And praised God

For he was honored

To serve God

So that by taking pains and efforts in prophets' job

Warmly welcomes the traveler

And like a gardener Takes care of the young sapling

The traveler looked awesome

Spirit had control over body

Body for he was not skilled

Didn't like to obey

Spirit who for eating the seed, from paradise

Was exiled

And he knew that God's Mercy and Kindness

Had embraced him

God's forgiveness and benevolence

Was showed off

Spirit

For disobedience and because of Devil's deceit

Has eaten the seed of knowledge and awareness

And in body

Which is from the low world of human

Has to be imprisoned

Then spirit

After The bone of forehead hardens

And after acquiring knowledge

By eating the very seed with the aid of body has to (Spiritually) improve

And moves toward (spiritual) perfection

And what he had done in the former world

Should now on earth

Reach the real self by knowledge and practice

And become this verse of holy Koran "We are indeed created by Allah and To Allah we indeed do return."

The traveler

Has come to this world to become perfect

And has to pass many worlds

To compensate for eating the seed

The traveler

When put into the body needed an identity


And that was name

So that to live in the temporal life

And the traveler's name was decided before

And has to

Correspond with body

Members of the family

Reviewed names in their minds

Mother

Was the gardener of love


And inside

Kept some secrets

To use on the right time

The traveler's spirit

In the body whose host was mother

Was blown (infused)

And that name was Abbas.

Mother

At the time of hosting

Had sever sore eyes

And in the sunset of those days

In a room, was feeling so terrible a pain

As if her body's strength was about to end

The effect of the material drug had proved useless.
