watching the river flow
“Your cure is in you, but you are unaware,
And your illness is from you, but you do not see.
And you consider yourself to be a small mass
While within you lies the greatest world.
And you are the clear book
Whose letters make manifest the hidden.”
Amīr al-Mu’mineen, Imam Ali (ع)
“Take refuge in your senses, open up | To all the small miracles you rushed through.”
— John O’Donohue —
We can’t enchant the world, which makes its own magic: but we can enchant ourselves by paying deep attention.
