Those who became complete…

Those who became complete

didn’t live this life in hypocrisy,

didn’t learn the meaning of things

by reading commentaries.

Reality is an ocean; the Law is a ship.

Many have never left the ship,

never jumped into the sea.

They might have come to Worship

but they stopped at rituals.

They never knew or entered the Inside.

Those who think the Four Books

were meant to be talked about,

who have only read explanations

and never entered meaning,

are really in sin.

Yunus means “true friend”

for one whose journey has begun.

Until we transform our Names,

we haven’t found the Way.

– Yunus Emre
