I am the slave of passion and the slave of the Beloved.
The fire of passion burns my heart
And the One I love is in my mind.
Passion has seized hold of the reins of my heart
So wherever I turn my gaze
Passion is facing me.

(Ibn Arabi)

Now you must know, God loves the soul so mightily, he who should rob God of loving the soul would rob him of his very life and being (would kill God if one may say so) for the very love wherewith God loves the soul is what his Holy Breath is blowing in.

(Meister Eckhart)
