Let go of your worries

Let go of your worries.

and be completely clear-hearted,

like the face of a mirror.

that contains no images.

If you want a clear mirror,

behold yourself

and see the shameless truth,

which the mirror reflects.

If metal can be polished

to a mirror-like finish,

what polishing might the mirror

of the heart require?

Between the mirror and the heart

is this single difference:

the heart conceals secrets,

while the mirror does not.

The Divani Shamsi Tabriz, XIII

Stay happy, healthy and safe -32

The human spirit is tremendously resilient.

It can withstand the most horrific of circumstances,

whether of human or divine creation…

It is not these larger-than-life situations that beat us.

It’s the little things.
