“Even After All this time The Sun never says to the Earth, "You owe me." Look What happens With a love like that, It lights the whole sky.” Hafiz
Food for Thought
Love knows no bounds. It is given freely. To those who will brave its tests, not even the world itself can bound the growth you will find possible in its simple undertakings.
There is something truly beautiful in these words penned by mystic Persian poet Hafiz 7 centuries prior. It touches upon the true essence of love from a universal perspective. While love’s foundation is built upon an initial division, two bodies being separate yet yearning to unite as one, it is in this attracting force that union is found in the reparation of that which initially divided. Love is that uniting force, that mends all divides. But it always takes two willing participants, a giver and a receiver, to realize its solitary aim.
If there is no love to give, one cannot receive the warmth needed to kindle the internal passions within. If no one is there to receive, the union goes unrequited, and the warmth simply dies out with the light never being seen.
Who needs your love today? What gentle reminder of warming kindness can you show to that person who may need it the most? With loving kindness, my friends. May blessings find you on your journey to advance confidently in the direction of your dreams.
