Let the Race End

I have to share this beautiful quote with you all-
Muslim Sufi poet, a humanist and a philosopher Bulleh Shah (1680- 1757 Uch, Bahawalpur, Punjab, Pakistan). He wrote, “You read to become all knowledgeable but you never read yourself. You read so many books to know it all, yet fail to ever read your heart at all. You run to enter temples and mosques but you never entered your own heart. You rush to holy shrines to play a part, would you dare enter the shrine of your own heart. Everyday you fight Satan but you never fight your own Ego. You are quick to attack the evil one, yet pride is a battle you have not won. Bulleh Shah you try grabbing that which is in the sky but you never get hold of what sits inside you. You grab for a star you can control, yet fail to grasp the light in your own soul. Let the race end, my friend.”
