Looking for the shining of the Friend

"One day I was going along
looking to see in people the shining of the Friend."


Rumi as translated by Coleman Barks

Every day I go along hoping to see in people the shining of the Friend and most days in most people I see It if I look hard enough and deep enough. Often time, though, It is buried very deeply and the person herself does not even know what she is hiding. I have learned that seeing the Blessing is more in the eyes of the beholder than in the vessel looked upon. But even though well hidden, there is always a spark, sometimes a flame, and once in a great while a bonfire, a conflagration like the sun.
