Seeds of Truth

When your truth forsakes its shyness,
when your fears surrender to your strengths,
you will begin to experience
that all existence
is a teeming sea of infinite life.
 –Hafiz, from the poem “In a Handful of God”


I love this poem, especially the line about surrendering your fears to your strengths. It’s always a good reminder that each one of us has strengths, even if they are deeply buried beneath our fears.

What seeds of truth are hidden beneath your shell?  

What shyness can you shake off in order for truth to give way to strength and resilience?
