“Wisdom is like the rain. Its source is limitless, but it comes down according to the season.”
—Jalāl al-Dīn Muḥammad Rūmī, 13th-century Persian poet
When do you receive the most rain where you live?
Just as water is essential to life, Rumi suggests that wisdom is water for our spirits. Unfortunately, we do not always receive rain when we need it throughout the year.
What season of life are you in? Look back over the years to see how you have benefited from the wisdom of others and become the reservoir for members of your communities who thirst for its refreshing and renewing properties.
Where in your world are people experiencing a drought of wisdom and a thirst for growth?
How can we tap the aquifers and sprinkler systems that are often out of sight to soak and refresh our souls?
