Islamic Heart Work

Like a poem.  A gift from the heart of Omid Safi.  Whose written word set fire to my own heart:

In a cool mountain night, I put on a few pieces of wood on the fire, and stood there watching them burn.

Bit by bit, they gave in to the flame, and caught on fire.

After a while it dawned on me:   the fire is from the wood.
The flame is simply the release of the energy inside the dormant fire.

We are like this too.

All of us contain, in our very inside, immense Divine energy.
Sometime we need a spark, an encounter, to release the Divine potential inside.    And then our souls catch on fire, giving heat and light to all around.

Read the rest here.
