Finer Germs

March 19, 2017

One person comes into a country

with a little cold or influenza

and it spreads.

If such a bad thing can spread,

cannot an elevated thought

of love, kindness

and goodwill towards all men spread?

See then that there are finer germs,

germs of goodwill, of love, kindness,

and feeling, germs of brotherhood,

of the desire for spiritual evolution,

which can have greater results

than the other ones.

If we all have that optimistic view,

if we all work in our little way,

we can accomplish a great deal.

~Hazrat Inayat Khan

(1882-1927, founder of the Sufi Order of the West)
