Sheikh Farid (1175-1265)

Separated from God, my body burns like an oven,
My bones burn like firewood.
To meet the Beloved I would walk until my feet were tired,
I would walk on my head.
[ Guru Nanak comments:]
You need not burn yourself like an oven,
need not inflame your bones.
Why torture your poor limbs?
Behold the Beloved in your own heart.
(Guru Granth Sahib p. 2764)
