Ashamed

The Water said to the dirty one, “Come here.”

The dirty one said, “I am too ashamed.”

The water replied, “How will your shame be washed away without me?”

~Rumi

Eventually we all have to return to the stream of His mercy, no matter how stained our souls. For only there can we be purified and made whole again.

So why delay, why let it fester, why stay away…

“And who despairs of the mercy of his Lord except for those astray?”
Surah Al-Hijr 56
