Energetic Work

If you want the pearl,
leave the inland desert,
and wander by the sea.

Even if you don’t find it,
at least you have been near the water.

Be a warrior! Desire something
powerfully! Saddle your horse
and get ready for the quest.

Don’t accept  a crown
made of this invisible sky.
Wait for what Gabriel brings.

Be energetic in the work
that takes you to God!

The weak and the sickly only think
about surrender. Lie down before
the door you long to go through.

Open your loving completely.
Only a dog sits idly
licking a bone.

– Sanai
(Translation by Coleman Barks)
