A Moment to Reflect

Let go of your worries
and be completely clear-hearted,
like the face of a mirror
that contains no images.

If you want a clear mirror,
behold yourself and
see the shameless truth,
which the mirror reflects.

If metal can be polished
to a mirror-like finish,
what polishing might the mirror
of the heart require?

Between the mirror and the heart
is this single difference:  the heart
conceals secrets, while the mirror does not.
----- Rumi ----

I love Rumi!  So much to think about....
