and the people of this planet ~ all made by the Divine. Therefore we all have the seed of the Creator in us, and it is surely the wish of the Beloved that we should nourish this seed and help it grow within us and around us. Why else are we here? Why are so many of us so unhappy with our lot in life? Perhaps, because we have deserted our spiritual life … sold it for 30 pieces of silver.
Good news, fellow travelers. From the words of the great poet, Jalalu’ddin Rumi:
With God is the best bargain; He buys from you your dirty fortune and gives in exchange light of the soul. He buys the ice of the perishable body and gives a kingdom beyond imagination.*
