Thy-Will-Be-Done

A perfect Thy-Will-Be-Done state of spiritual life was this and it is exquisitely reflected in the following verses of Mansur Hallāj:

“Thy will be done, O my lord and Master!

Thy will be done, O my purpose and meaning!

O essence of my being, O goal of my desire,

O my speech and my hints and my gestures!

O all of my all, O my hearing and my sight,

O my whole and my element and my particle!”
