Bow to the Essence

"Pay no attention
to what so-and-so says about such-and-such.

The rose does not care
if someone calls it a thorn, or a jasmine.

Ordinary eyes categorize human beings...
Walk instead with the other vision given you,
your first eyes.

Bow to the essence in a human being.
Do not be content
with judging people good and bad.
Grow out of that."

-- Rumi
