You are me. I am you.

One

The sons of Adam are limbs of each other,

Having been created of one essence.

When the calamity of time affects one limb,

The other limbs cannot remain at rest.

If you have no sympathy for the troubles of others,

You are unworthy to be called by the name of a Human.

~ Bani Adam, by Sa’adi of Shiraz

*********

A 13th century Sufi knew this.  Yet today much of humanity seems to live as if completely unaware of this existential truth.  May we all be granted a return to the Source of Truth.

    • Dear Ranu,

      Thank you for your visit and comments.

      This from Sa’adi both saddens and inspires me.

      All good wishes,

      robert
