Don’t look for it outside yourself.
You are the source of milk. Don’t milk others!
There is a milk fountain inside you.
Don’t walk around with an empty bucket.
You have a channel into the ocean, and yet
You ask for water from a little pool.
Beg for that love expansion. Meditate only
on THAT. The Qur’an says,
And He is with you. ~ Rumi
As I read these words…I felt they were saying look at the gifts/strength/blessings (whatever you would like to call it) within yourself. For me, I look inward for the Buddha nature. The answers of why this or that is always within. May your day be free of suffering and the causes of suffering. ~ Debra
