Growing in Love

Mevlana Garden, November 21, 2017

Brazil is a big country,
huge cities and vast countryside.
And the ocean, so wide, embracing the beach that never ends.

What is one man in all this vastness?
Who is this special being, attracting seekers like bees to nectar?
You might look and see a man.

But.

Look a little longer, and his size will take your breath away.
He extends far, like the ocean,
and he contains the stars.

Never before have so many come to his temple.
Seekers and disciples, students and devotees,
young and old, from near and far.
All with the same longing for Truth.

His burning sun
ignites many smaller lights,
spreading across the earth.
One light may be small,
but together we shine brightly.

We are his extension.
Carrying the biggest light of all,
the light of Love.
