Accompaniment

by Mark Chmiel

Al-Hujwiri, the 11th Century Sufi Master, writes in his Kashf al-Mahjub: When Moses conversed with God, he asked, “Lord, where shall I seek You?” God answered, “Among the brokenhearted.” Moses continued, “But, Lord, no heart could be more despairing than mine.” And God replied, “Then I am where you are.”
