Hafiz quote about light within self

A self-belief inspirational quote by Hafiz, with nature background

When I came across this powerful quote by the Persian poet, it reminded me of a prayer we used to sing in the school assembly.

One of the lines in that prayer said – never borrow light from someone else for your heart, that kind of light won’t last long and you will be left with delusions ultimately. Instead, illuminate your heart with a light that is your very own, one that emanates from within!

About the photo, well, this guy caught my interest because it was looking away from the sun, unlike what sunflowers tend to do mostly. And as a result, it was shining very differently, as if from within, as you can see!

“I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being.”

― Hafiz of Shiraz
