Love whispers to my ear,
“Better to be a prey than a hunter.
Make yourself My fool.
Stop trying to become the sun and become a speck!
Dwell at My door and be homeless.
Don’t pretend to be a candle, be a moth,
so you may taste the savor of Life
and know the power hidden in serving.”
Mathnawi V. 411-414 (translated by Kabir Helminski)
