Oh there is  many a one whose eye is awake

and whose heart is asleep: what, in truth, should be

seen by the eyes of creatures of water and clay?

(But) he that keeps his heart awake-though the eyes of his head may sleep

it (his heart) will open a hundred eyes.

…..Be awake…..be a seeker of the (illumined) heart….

But if your heart has been awakened, sleep sound: thy

(spiritual) eye is not absent from the seven (heavens) and six (directions).

Hz Mawlana Rumi (Masnavi BK 3).
