not to worry





.



The sea doesn't let the fish out,
nor does it let the creatures of the earth in.

Water is the original home of the fish;
the weighty animal is of the earth.
Nothing we do can change this.

The lock of Divine destiny is strong,
and the only opener is God:
cling to surrender and contentment with God's will.

Though the atoms, one by one, should become keys,
yet this opening is not effected except by grace.

When you forget your own scheming,
happiness will come to you from your spiritual guide.

When you are forgetful of self,
you are remembered by God;
when you have become God's slave,
then you are set free.


–Rumi
