In truth, everything and everyone
is a shadow of the Beloved.
And our seeking is His seeking,
and our words are His words.
We search for Him here and there.
While looking right at Him,
sitting by His side, we ask:
'O Beloved, where is the Beloved?'
Enough with such questions!
Let silence take you to the core of life.
All your talk is worthless when compared
with one whisper of the Beloved.
You playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightening about shrinking so that others won’t feel uncomfortable around you. As you let your own light shine, you indirectly give others permission to do the same.
