THE PROPHETS ...

THE PROPHETS

have wondered to themselves, "How long should we keep pounding this cold iron? How long do we have to whisper into an empty cage?"

So don't be timid. Load the ship and set out. No one knows for certain whether the vessel will sink or reach the harbor.

Just don't be one of those merchants who won't risk the ocean!
This is much more important than losing or making money!

This is your connection to God.

Think of the fear and the hope that you have about your livelihood. They make you go to work diligently every day.

Now consider what the prophets have done.

Abraham wore fire for an anklet. Moses spoke to the sea. David moulded iron. Solomon rode the wind.

Work in the invisible world at least as hard as you do in the visible. Be a companion with the prophets, invisibly, so that no one knows.

You can't imagine what profit will come! When one of those generous ones invites you into his fire, go quickly!

Don't say, "But will it burn me? Will it hurt?"

Rise! Move around the center as pilgrims wind the Kaaba.

Being still is how one clay clod sticks to another in sleep, while movement wakes us up and unlocks new blessings.
