    The lamps are different,
    But the Light is the same.

    So many garish lamps in the dying brain’s lamp shop,
    Forget about them.

    Concentrate on essence, concentrate on Light.
    All people, all possible permutations of good, evil, thought, passion.

    The lamps are different,
    But the Light is the same.

    One matter, one energy, one Light, one Light-mind,
    Endlessly emanating all things.

    One turning and burning diamond,
    One, one, one.

    ~Jalāl ad-Dīn Rūmī

    Live where you fear to live.
    Destroy your reputation.
    Be notorious.”
