“Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder. Help someone’s soul heal. Walk out of your house like a shepherd.” ~ Rumi
My Dear One, I want you to know that it counts if that “someone” is you.
As a matter of fact, it counts at least DOUBLE!
As you walk out of your house or stay in, as you are a lamp, a lifeboat, or a ladder to YOURSELF, as you help YOUR soul heal, you become more and more able to help others.
Be a lamp to yourself, and your light will shine brighter.
Be a lifeboat to yourself, and your capacity to float others above rising waters will increase.
Be a ladder to yourself, and your loving reach will extend even farther into the world.
Love YOU, and you will have a thousand times the love to give to others.
I love you. Just wanted you to know.
