This body, although magnificent, is but a vehicle to carry me to the flame.” – Sufi quote

Moth to the flame is a favorite motif of Sufi mystics. The moth being our individual consciousness and the flame being oneness with God. The moth cannot help itself but be drawn to that one Love that will at once mean both eternity and oblivion.
