Excerpt About Secret

Arrival of the Guest, the Secret

Today I’ll read you one of my poems titled “The Guest Arrives Only at Night”:
"Annihilate mind in heart,
Divorce heart from all relationships,
And then love,
Love passionately,
Consume yourself with passion
for the secret one.
When you are absolutely poor,
When you are no more,
Then the Guest will appear
And occupy his place,
In the secret chamber,
His abode,
The heart he gave you.
He is the Inner of the Inner,
He is the Secret,
He is the Guest,
And he arrives
Only at night."
There is much in this poem that we can discuss, but I will focus mostly on the theme expressed in the title, “The Guest Arrives Only at Night.” I will use a specific terminology of the path of the heart, where the Absolute is variously referred to as the Beloved, the Guest, the Secret, the Inner of the Inner, and so on.
