My Heart Has Become Capable Of Every Form

My heart has become capable of every form:
it is a pasture for gazelles,
and a monastery for Christian monks,
And a temple for idols,
And the Pilgrims' ka'ba,
and the tablet of the Torah,
and the Book of the Koran.
I follow the religion of Love:
whatever way love's camel takes,
That is my religion, my faith.

~ Ibn Al-Arabi, Sufi mystic (1165-1240)
