Name: Nilay AKSU
Country: Germany
Intro: Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, not Hindu,
Buddhist, sufi, or zen. Not any religion
or cultural system. I am not from the East
or the West, not out of the ocean or up
from the ground, not natural or ethereal, not
composed of elements at all. I do not exist,
am not an entity in this world or the next,
did not descend from Adam and Eve or any
origin story. My place is placeless, a trace
of the traceless. Neither body or soul.

I belong to the beloved, have seen the two
worlds as one and that one call to and know,
first, last, outer, inner, only that
breath breathing human being.

Mevlana Jelaluddin RUMI
*********

Ne hristiyan, ne yahudi, ne hindu, ne budist, ne zen, ne de sufiyim.
Hiçbir din ya da kültür düzenine ait değilim.
Ne doğu, ne batıdan geldim, ne deniz, ne de yerden çıktım.
Ne tabii, ne havai, ne de çeşitli maddelerden oluştum.

Ben yokum.
Ne bu dünyada varım, ne de öteki dünyada.
Ne Ademdan, ne Havvadan, ne de başka bir başlangıç masalından çıktım.

Yerim yersiz, izim izsiz.
Ne vücut ne de ruhum.

Sevgiliye aitim.
İki dünyayı bir gördüm,
Bir onu çağırdım, bir onu bildim.

Önce, sonda, dışta, içte,
Sadece o,
nefes alan,
Ve nefes veren
İnsanoğluyum.
