Listen with respect to those outside of you, but go within for the answers. As Rumi states “the entrance door to the sanctuary is inside you.”
What sanctuary? The one given to you at birth. When the Creator blew life into us we were gifted with a place where unlimited, love, peace, and joy reside, it is housed in the heart.
If you can make your way through the overgrown path life’s hardships have pummeled you with you will discover we do indeed have everything needed for the road ahead.
Faith helps us access these treasures, but regardless if we believe or not they remain in us and await our embrace.
Utilize this inner resource and watch life respond in ways you never dreamed possible.
As the poet Attar says,
“Let love lead your soul
Make it a place to retire to,
a kind of cave, a retreat
for the deep core of being.”
Heal, do whatever it takes but make your way to this inner sanctuary. It is yours forever more no one can take it from you, no one.
