the minaret the
call to prayer comes to us
from the outside in. Other callings
come from inside us, the animal energies, the
various wantings, even our attraction to the purity of
angels. I notice that every part of my body and my awareness
is ready to receive each of these cravings. I have more of
them than most because I ask for more. They come as
gifts. When my sexual desire gets satisfied,
my entire body feels pleased and
peaceful. And looking at
people so agitated
about these things, when all
they have to do is live in the love of the
presence? I am faithful to that, and the way
of pleasure and satisfaction has been opened to me.
There are many different ways. Some have nothing in common
with others. Mine is unique to me, and I enjoy it tremendously.
The world I see is even more beautiful and pleasurable
than the one we accept in common. Many people
want to be like me, but I have no desire to be
like them. Which proves that I have
been given a more delicious life
than the one they live.
