How strange! How can a lover sleep!
Sleep isn’t allowed for one who loves!

Rumi’s Sun – The Teachings of Shams of Tabriz

pop

Freewill is the effort to thank God for Her Gifts:
when you negate freewill you ignore that generosity.
Giving thanks for the capacity of will
increases your power;
relying on destiny’s course takes the gift from your hand.
Believing in predestination
is like going sleep on the road-
don’t sleep! Don’t sleep,
until you come to the gate and reach the threshold!

Mathnawi I:938-942
