Hoping for the Guest

Friend, hope for the Guest while you are alive.
Jump into experience while you are alive!
Think...and think...while you are alive.
What you call "salvation" belongs to the
time before death.

If you don't break the ropes while you are 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 apartment in the City of Death.

If you make love with the divine now, in the next
you will have the face of satisfied desire.

Kabir says this: When the Guest is being
searched for,
it is the intensity of the longing
for the Guest that
does all the work.
