This poem mirrors our true self. It is profound and gentle. Yet, the power leans on us to recognize: if we are worthy or unworthy.
is as precious as you are.
Look in the mirror; take a good look at yourself;
Who else is above and beyond you?
Now give yourself a kiss –
sweet whispers will fill your ears to the brim.
Watch for all that beauty reflecting from you
and sing a love song to your existence.
You can never overdo.
Praising your own soul
you can never over-pamper your heart.
You are both the father and the son,
the sugar and the sugar cane;
who else but you.
Please tell me who else can take your place?
Now give yourself to smile.
What is the worth of a diamond if it doesn’t shine?
How can I put a price on the diamond that you are?
You are the entire treasure of the house.
You and your shadow are forever present in this world.
You are that glorious bird of paradise.”–Rumi
