From project “Dervishes” by Omneya El Naggar.
Dervishes are Sufi seekers.
They each embark on different journeys, but all paths traversed lead to the Beloved.
In their search, they “embrace the light” and let it guide them “beyond the winds of desire”.
A dervish dwells in an eternal longing to be united with the Beloved. In the “Reed Flute’s Song”, Rumi describes this longing:
Since I was cut from the reed bed, I have made this crying sound.
Anyone pulled from a source longs to go back.
When you have this fire inside, it will lead you to create your own journey, and a path will appear.
