Nasheva in Nevara

Nasheva had travelled extensively to Heliopolis, Delphi, Athens, Anthioch, Cyrene, Raphia, and Tyre but it was in Nevara that she saw the remarkable wonders of nature that she had never seen before. In Nevara’s southern coast she saw rugged splendor of magnificent rock stacks rising up superbly as if forming stairways to heaven. The rocks were giving the impression of solidified beauty that transcended into the celestial. Underneath she saw endless white sand beaches, crystal clear coastal waters, reflecting the face of the azure skies.

Nasheva took a deep breath. Such overwhelming display of the beaches and rocks mesmerized her. For a moment she imagined herself a tiny sand in a shore of infinity, washed away by the waves over a thousand years, only to find itself to return to where it belongs. While the vast ocean that lay before her was calm and serene, she presumed that such serenity must have come after lightning bolts and calamitous thunderstorms that the ocean had endured throughout thousands of years.

As a little girl she used to hide under a table every time she heard the sound of thunders. She felt she was totally helpless. Now as she was standing there she felt the helplessness in the grace of God’s hands presented itself in a different form. Not in the form of fear but of unceasing amazement.

As she saw the interminable ability of nature to inspire and astound her, Nasheva kneeled. She stretched her arms and felt the blow of the wind caressing her cheek.  Now she felt that nature’s hands had been holding the most precocious of her life’s secrets tenderly.

An air of divine tranquility pervaded her mind and her heart. Suddenly her body trembled and tears were rolling from her eyes like a heavy rain. It was at this time when she said:

My heart is ablaze,

and my soul is burning.

You can see the flame

in the glare of the sun and the beam of the moon.

Now you know that I have surrendered to Love.

 

I am so drunk with Love.

My heart pounds a thousand times faster,

my body trembles, my hands shake,

I can no longer feel my legs.

I love God more than I love myself.

Lord,

I thought You were cruel

when You torn my heart

into pieces and scattered them,

and they became dust.

But then when You blew the dust to the sky,

and it became the stars,

I began to understand your inmost secret.

 

I was thoughtless and ignorant,

Forgive me and lead me to Light, Lord.

 

O Lord,

Now I feel Your presence

in the splendors of nature that lay before me.

I can hear Your knocking the door to my heart

and Your sweet fragrance intoxicating my lungs

 

O Lord,

With the creation of the sky and the earth,

And the alternation of nights and days,

You did not create all this in vain.

Be Your name glorified forever.
