but He draws you somewhere else.
He turns the horse’s bridle in every direction
so that the untrained horse may know there is a rider.
because it knows a rider is mounted upon it.
He fixed your heart on a hundred passionate desires,
disappointed you, and then broke your heart.
how do you doubt the existence of the Wing-breaker?
how can you remain blind to His Command?
so that through hope your heart
might form another intention
which He might once again destroy.
you would despair:
how would the seed of expectation be sown?
and then encounter barrenness,
how would it recognize its submission to Divine will?
By their failures lovers are made aware of their Lord.
Pay attention to the tradition,
” Paradise is encompassed with pain.”
