Souls Which Know

I haven't come here to settle down.
I've come here to depart.
I am a merchant with lots of goods,
selling to whoever will buy.

I didn't come to create any problems,
I'm only here to love.
A Heart makes a good home for the Friend.
I've come to build some hearts.

I'm a little drunk from this Friendship -
any lover would know the shape I'm in.
I've come to exchange my twoness,
to dissapear in One.

He is my teacher. I am His servant.
I am a nightingale in His garden.
I've come to the Teacher's garden
to be happy and die singing.

They say 'Souls which know each other here,
know each other there.'
I've come to know a Teacher
and to show myself as I am.

- Yunus Emre

Like many other Sufis, Yunus Emre triggered a heavy reaction from Moslem dogmatists who begun to regard him as a foe. A legend describes that Molla KasIm, a traditionalist, decided to destroy all transcriptions of Yunus's poems. He sat on a river bank and starts tearing all the material he found heretical, throwing the scraps into the river, until he saw two lines:

Yunus Emre, utter no word that is not true,
For a Molla KasIm will come to cross-examine you!

Molla KasIm burst into tears as he understood his mistake. He saved the rest of the precious poetry - some claim two thirds of Yunus Emre's poetry was destroyed this way- for the rest of his life.

How Yunus knew about Molla KasIm nobody knows; nobody is even sure whether this piece of poetry really belongs to Yunus or if it is part of the thousands of verses recited in his name centuries after.

Thereafter, the legend claims, his poetry was carried around by the rivers, recited by the fish in the water, blown by the winds and recited by the angels in the air, with the remaining part recited by thousands of people.

Purity and sincerity reside in the heart of every single human being. Of all the things we could know, that is the one we need to discover. That is the one that can make a difference, that is real. That is what makes us, us.
