  • من بمردم یک ره و باز آمدم  ** من چشیدم تلخی مرگ و عدم 
  • I died (to self) once (and for all), and (then) I came back (to spiritual life): I tasted the bitterness of death and non-existence.

  • Story demonstrating that (when) a person repents and feels remorse and then forgets his feelings of remorse and tries again what he has tried (before), he falls into everlasting perdition. Unless his repentance be reinforced by a (great) firmness and strength and by a (great) sweetness and acceptance (experienced inwardly), it is like a rootless tree, more faded and withered every day. We take refuge with God (from that).
