از کفر و ز اسلام برون صحرائی است
ما را به میان آن فضا سودائی است
عارف چو بدان رسید سر را بنهد
نه کفر و نه اسلام و نه آنجا جائی است

The six things I could never do without
Breathing in: I feel you beside me.
Breathing out: I feel you in front of me.
Breathing in: I feel you behind me.
Breathing out: I feel you inside me.

Those six lines form an abridged zikr-i mahw al-jihat or “the meditation of obliterating all directions” as outlined in a manual completed on 3 October 1690 CE, or the last day of the final month in 1101 according to the Hijri or lunar calendar. First, we stand and face ‘the heavenly throne to say… anta fauqi.’ Then we ‘turn to face the earth and sit to say… anta tahti.’ We continue—our bodies shifting the gaze to the right, to the left, and over the shoulder—until the dance concludes on our knees… when ‘in a beat directed to the heart,’ we say anta fiya or “You are in me.”
I spend a lot of time thinking about

Us (on our knees).

The meditations in that manual were designed for oral transmission in an encounter called sina-ba-sina in Persian, which depending on the translation, is either from “breast to breast” or “heart to heart.” The teacher and his student—the lover and his beloved—are on the floor, seated as if in prayer on their knees. But rather than facing Mecca, the arched mihrabs in their shared prayer rug (if there was one) point to each other. In addition to the dance, the manual offers instructions for those ‘seekers’ who are ‘simpleminded and inexperienced,’ which will include us:


Sitting knee to knee
The seeker lowers his chin
Draws his abdomen inward
Holds his chest out full, closes his eyes.

The Other begins feeling the Seeker's breath
As the Seeker exhales, the Other inhales for him.

(The force of the scream should result in blood oozing from the nose and ears).


A variation on this meditation can be performed knee to knee following the model of the twelfth-century poet Ahmad, who would extend his hand towards his favorite pupil while holding a flower, superimposing its petals over the youth’s face ‘…contemplating now the rose, now the beloved…’

who as his mirror image was ‘more he than he.’

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
which was originally written...

"What is Art?, art could (but might not) be simply doing art, whatever that is, as long as it can't be identified."

Instead, a plan for finding each other:

Climb to the tree circle in Hampstead Heath
Overlooking the South Meadow and the ponds.
Sit knee to knee on the prayer rug, breathe
Keeping silent until the sun finally sets.
