Your First Eyes/444

“A lover has four streams inside, of water, wine, honey, and milk. Find those in yourself and pay no attention to what so -and – so says about such and such. The rose does not care if someone calls it a thorn, or a jasmine. Ordinary eyes categorize human beings.

‘That one is Zoroastrian. This one is Muslim.’ Walk instead with the other vision given to you,

Your first eyes.

Bow to the essence in a human being. Do not be content with judging people good and bad. Grow out of that. The great blessing is that Shams has poured a strength into the ground that lets us wait and trust the waiting.” –Rumi
