Day Thirty Nine

Rule 39
“While the part changes, the whole always remains the same. For every thief who departs this world, a new one is born. And every decent person who passes away is replaced by a new one. In this way not only does nothing remain the same but also nothing ever really changes. For every Sufi who dies, another is born somewhere.”

Balance. Life is all about balance. Sometimes it takes a while, but it will come. There will always be good and evil in the world, and I don't know if it's really this world that becomes more rotten each passing year, or the fact that we were unaware of it before this age of "disinformation", or maybe we were too young to understand. 

The universe is a balancing act, and so are you. My good friend always says, some people enter our lives "for a season, for a reason", and others are for life. Trouble is it's hard to tell which category people fall into. Tricky, that. 

Well, to all who have suffered heartache and heartbreak, to those of you who are going through it right now, this one's for you. This, too, shall pass. Have faith. 

cry your heart out, sweet one
there is no shame in crying
you don't have to be tough
you don't have to keep hiding

so she left you without a trace
so he broke your wounded heart
these things happen sadly
but you'll get your brand new start

i know it feels like a trial
walking through these walls of fire
cupid shot a blazing arrow alright
but it was for a funeral pyre

sometimes your heart needs to break
into a million tiny pieces
so you can build it back up stronger
get to know it, get to feel it

just promise me one little thing
when you're all cried out and done
know this, deep in your heart
that person was not the one

the one is a myth, a fairytale
to keep us warm at night
you don't need it to get back on your feet,
soon everything will be alright

promise yourself you'll always keep
an open heart and mind
no matter what anyone does to you
you will remain true and kind

there is a love that's meant for you
and it will make you forget this hell
but the one true love for all of us
is knowing to love ourselves
