The Mirror – 2

Bountiful is your life, full and complete. Or so you think, until someone comes along and makes you realize what you have been missing all this time. Like a mirror that reflects what is absent rather than present, he shows you the void in your soul – the void you have resisted seeing. That person can be a lover, a friend, or a spiritual master. Sometimes it can be a child to look after. What matters is to find the soul that will complete yours. All the prophets have given the same advice: Find the one who will be your mirror! For me the mirror is Shams of Tabriz. Until he came and forced me to look deep into the crannies of my soul, I had not faced the fundamental truth about myself: that though successful and prosperous outside, I was lonely and unfulfilled inside.

From the novel ‘Forty Rules of Love’

These Words
Pre-written in my Heart – delivered as
A direct Message to the soul.

As I read the Message
Everything around me moves
I become a leaf – that remains static
In the windless space.

There is a Void
Yet, I am not hungry
Nor am I afraid,
I remain Empty.

Every time I read
I surrender to this Prophecy
I resurrect the broken Mirror in my Being
Thus spoke the complete Soul.
