Going where the wind blows

Shah Naqshband ﻕ said:

I want a surrender like that of a tree-leaf when it dries up, dies and is ready to fall to the ground, and the wind will bear it off the branch and carry it north, south, east or west but it will not say anything. Where the wind takes it, it will go. No will; no partial will; nothing! Surrendering to the will of God. If the wind later takes it to a fireplace, it will go there also, and it will burn. I want a surrender like that from my disciple. At that time, I will open the door for him.

From “Pearls and Coral, Secrets of the Sufi Way” by Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani
