When I woke up this morning I asked myself:
What are some of the secrets of success in life ???
I found the answer right there in my very room ...
The Fan said : Be cool
The Roof said : Aim high
The Window said : See the world
The Clock said : Every minute is precious
The Mirror said : Reflect before you act
The Door said : Push hard for your goals
The Carpet said : Kneel down and pray ...

Not in learning
Not in knowledge
Not in pages and pamphlets
Wherever the debates of men may lead
That is not the lovers' path
Love's branches arch over pre-eternity
Its roots, you see, delve in Forever
A tree resting not on soil
Not even Heaven's throne
We deposed reason
Punishing passion with the lash
For such reason and such morals
Were degrading to such glory
So long as you long
You idolize longing
But become the beloved
And then no being longs
The incessant hopes and fears
Of the sea-faring man
Float upon planks
Both planks and seaman
And only submersion remains
Shams of Tabriz
The sea is you
The pearl too
Because your being
Head to toe
But the mystery
Of the Maker

Once you begin to address the essence of your own being
You can begin to understand who you are ...
If you don't know who you are
You're certainly not going to know whose you are ...
That is why self-knowledge is foundational in our religion ...
