Rocks will open and make a way for the lover.
Rumi describes six signs of the lover: deep sigh, mild _expression, moist
eyes, eating little, speaking little, sleeping little, which all show the
sign of pain in love. Hafiz says, 'All bliss in my life has been the outcome
of unceasing tears and continual sighs through the heart of night.'
The sorrow of the lover is continual, in the presence and in the absence of
the beloved: in the presence for fear of the absence, and in absence in
longing for the presence. According to the mystical view the pain of love is
the dynamite that breaks up the heart, even if it be as hard as a rock. When
this hardness that covers the light within is broken through, the streams of
all bliss come forth as springs from the mountains. The Moral of Love -
LOVE, HUMAN AND DIVINE - SPIRITUAL LIBERTY
