Ekla Chalo Re

If they answer not to thy call walk alone,
If they are afraid and cower mutely facing the wall,
O thou unlucky one,
open thy mind and speak out alone.

If they turn away, and desert you when crossing the wilderness,
O thou unlucky one,
trample the thorns under thy tread,
and along the blood-lined track travel alone.

If they do not hold up the light when the night is troubled with storm,
O thou unlucky one,
with the thunder flame of pain ignite thy own heart
and let it burn alone.

Rabindranath Tagore

If only you can reflect

"Your remedy is within you, but you don't sense it. 
Your sickness is within you, but you do not perceive it.. 
You presume that you are a small entity, whereas within you is concealed the vast world. 
You are indeed that magnificent book, by whose alphabet the hidden becomes evident. 
Therefore. You have no needs beyond yourself. Your essence and secrets are in you, if only you can reflect".

( Hazrat Ali A.S)
