By: Hazrat Shah Maghsoud Sadegh Angha, Pir Oveyssi

“The hearts of the heavenly angels are saturated with hope and tranquility.
In nature’s destination the pacts of man are apparent, but to the senses they are unknown.

The profound secret of existence is discovered in the union of the seen and the hidden, thus is man acquainted with eternity’s law.

Man’s temporary attachments, at their zenith, ever conceal heavenly events from his sight.

Desires cause the eye of the heart to be blind and decorate ignorance for the perception of the human eye.

Useless is thought not meant for inner peace and tranquility, and worthless is knowledge that enhances not the personality.

The embryos of immature thoughts and incomplete wisdom are dead before they are born. Real man is only he who keeps his living personality far from the fanciful motives of humanity.

The blessed ones receive the truth of life without learning the rites and traditions of nations.

The waters of spring rise from the heart of the earth, flow through the cracks in the rocks, and their course is not obstructed by sediment or mud.

The divine souls expel strangers from their midst and allow them not to become obstinate, for the dignity of God accepts not any law other than peace and tranquility, and anxiety has nowhere to flourish.

The delicate have greater endurance than the harsh; thus strength lies in tranquility and not in worry and anxiety.

The tranquil heart of the true men has far more splendor than anxious mind of the sinner.

The Gods cast a shadow like the clouds and bring forth rain, and their fruit is the increase of the blessings upon the accepting earth.

The highlands refuse the waters but the valleys will be filled with them, creating trees, fruit, and fish; thus, the rebels are not admonished by the fallen.”1
