from Kabir

“What you call ‘salvation’ belongs to the time
before death.

If you don’t break your ropes while you’re alive,
do you think
ghosts will do it after?

The idea that the soul will join with the ecstatic
just because the body is rotten—
that is all fantasy.
What is found now is found then.
If you find nothing now,
you will simply end up with an empty apartment
in the City of Death.
If you make love with the divine now, in the next life
you will wear the face of satisfied desire.
