Pondering

Sufi Message

Rather than wanting to master others, therefore, let us start by working on ourselves. Let us stop wondering what others could do for us, but rather ask ourselves what we could do for others. What could we really do for others? This question is already answered when we realize that the first effort to be made is to vanquish our own shortcomings, doubts, fears and worries, and to put into practice the basic principles of love, harmony and beauty, accommodating these to all circumstances.

Hi Trinitystar!
This Sufi message about working first on ourself radher than to master others is worth pondering.
You put good questions.

And the Mystic did come to see
that we alone cannot, alone be
All good things start from within
only then all good things come to BE!
