Another Life Lesson
People are all speech,
so be the best words heard.
When a thorn pierces you from them,
be the strongest shield in repelling it.
When you are like that with them,
then you, by God, are a beneficial leader.
The candle harms itselfwhile it is a blazing light to the onlooker.
The blame which you recognizeis a blessing in the hand a person who is deprived.
-Muhyi din Ibn al-‘Arabi, The Mysteries of Bearing Witness-
