Seeking His Face

Seeking Beloved's Glorious Face is the highest goal of spiritual aspirations for the devotee. We see the echo of this message in all major religious scriptures.

The Old Testament says:

Look to the LORD and his strength;
seek his face always. (Psalms 105:4)

O Lord, listen to my cry. Show loving-kindness to me and answer me.
You have said, "Look for My face."
My heart said to You, "O Lord, Your face will I look for." (Psalms 27:7-8)

The Qur'an says:

To Allah belong the East and the West;
whithersoever ye turn there is the presence of Allah.
For Allah is All-Pervading All-Knowing. (Qur'an 2:115)

We created man, We know the whisperings of his soul,
and We are closer to him than his jugular vein. (Qur'an 50:16)

In The Bhagavad-Gita, the Lord says:

... where there is one, that one is Me,
where there are many, all are Me. (9:15)

The great Indian poet and mystic Kabir wrote:

O servant, where dost thou seek Me?
Lo! I am beside thee.

The Chishti poet of India, Amir Khusrau wrote:

Love came and spread like blood in my veins and the skin of me,
It filled me with the Friend and completely emptied me.
The Friend has taken over all parts of my existence,
Only my name remains, as all is He.

And Hazrat Inayat Khan said:

God's faces are everywhere. There is nothing on the earth, in the sky, in the sea, where He is not seen; but if we do not recognize Him we do not know that we see Him. A great Indian poet, Amir, says, "O eyes, that are longing to see the Beloved, why do you complain of His absence?" This means, the Beloved is before you, He has not run away, but your eyes must recognize Him.

Listen to a beautiful song rendered by Wahiduddin on seeing God's Face everywhere.
