Yearning

It is said that Yahya ibn Mu’adh wrote to Abu Yazid al-Bistami:

"Here is the one who drunk from the cup of love and will never feel thirst again."

Abu Yazid responded to him:

"I am surprised at the weakness of your spiritual state! Here’s a man who has gulped down all the seas of existence, yet his mouth is agape, wanting more."

- Imam al Qushayri’s "Risalah"

“I intended for the piece to be a simple view, of an amazing reality. It  is the primordial symbol of the central still point within a circle.  Like the nucleus within the cell, every person’s being resonates with  this as it is what we are all made from - the macrocosm, revealing  itself within the microcosm.”
