The Simple Union.
O Sadhu! the simple union is the best.
Since the day I met with my Lord, there has been no
end to the sport of our love.
I shut not my eyes, I close not my ears, I do not mortify my body;
I see with eyes open and smile. and behold His beauty everywhere:
I utter His Name, and whatever I see, it reminds me of Him; whatever I do, it becomes His worship.
The rising and the setting are one to me; all contradictions are solved.
Wherever I go, I move round him,
All I achieve is His service:
When i lie down, I lie prostrate at His feet.
He is the only adorable one to me: I have none other.
My tongue has left off impure words, it sings His glory day and night:
Whether I rise or sit down, I can never forget Him; for the rhythm of His music beats in my ears.
Kabir says, "My heart is frenzied, and I disclose in my soul
what is hidden. I am immersed in that one great bliss
which transcends all pleasure and pain."
