The Hate Within Us

-




One day, the Sufi saint Lal Shahbaz Qalander (The Red Royal Falcon) was wandering the desert with his friend Sheikh Baha ud-Din Zakariya. It was winter and as night was approaching, they began to build a fire to keep warm.

They found some wood but they did not have fire, so Baha ud-Din suggested that Lal Shahbaz turn himself into a falcon and get fire from Hell. Off he flew, but an hour later he came back empty-handed.

"There is no fire in Hell," Lal Shahbaz said. "Everyone who goes there brings their own fire, their own hate, their own pain, pain from this world."

Seems they are not prepared to travel. They should have brought matches instead. Hahaha.

i wonder if that falcon is simply one big nega-star.

i refuse to believe that earth is hell on fire. and hell is fiery.
