Like oil in sesame seeds

Like oil in sesame seeds,

Fire in flint stone,

Your Beloved is inside you.

If you can, wake up -

Really wake up!

- Kabir

'Really waking up' involves a total transformation of consciousness -  an inward focusing in meditation that may take decades to develop, or that may be immediate, depending on one' s spiritual state and prior experience. Kabir' s 'wake up' saying suggests it takes hard work, persistence and a well- tried method to become aware of anything inside.
