MYSTICAL SHORT POEMS: “When my mind was cleansed of impurities” by Lalla

When my mind was cleansed of impurities

 

When my mind was cleansed of impurities,

like a mirror of its dust and dirt,

I recognized the Self in me:

When I saw Him dwelling in me,

I realized that He was the Everything and I was nothing.

by Lalla
