Spiritual love – Amor espiritual (The Book of Certainty)


 
… sooner or later the salik [seeker] must pass through a phase complementary to that of fear, and this is the phase of love, since it is through spiritual love alone that the heavenly desires may actually be recalled to the centre of the soul, there as it were to await the opening of the Eye of the Heart.
 
Martin Lings – The Book of Certainty
 
…………………………………………………
 
… tarde o temprano el salik [buscador] deberá pasar por una fase complementaria a la del temor, y ella es la fase del amor, puesto que solamente a través del amor espiritual los deseos celestiales pueden ser llamados al centro del alma, y allí sería como esperar la apertura del Ojo del Corazón.
 
Martin Lings- El Libro de la Certeza
