Let us seek the beauty within our heart...

Someone shared with me recently the poem below. It remind us that love, heart, and beauty can be found in every human being. It is not exclusive to certain groups or races.

A peaceful and meaningful world will only exist when we humble ourselves enough to realized that we know very little about each other and therefore before we kill out of fear or hate we need to learn each others heart and soul.



Rumi or Jalāl al-Dīn Muammad Rūmī, was a 13th-century poet and Sufi mystic originally from Afghanistan in the then Greater Iran.


I tried to find Him at the cross of the Christians, but He was not there.

I went to the temples of the Hindus and to the ancient pagodas, but there was no trace of Him anywhere.

I searched for Him in the mountains and valleys, but I could neither find Him in the high places nor in the low places.

I went to the Kaaba in Mecca, but He was not there either.

I questioned the scholars and philosophers, but He was beyond their understanding.

Then, I examined my heart, and it was there that He was dwelling when I found Him.

He is nowhere else.
