Thought for today

The true man (with the poster's apologies for the gender specific nature of this quote) of God sits in the midst of his fellow-men, and rises and eats and sleeps and marries and buys and sells and gives and takes in the bazaars and spends the days with other people, and yet never forgets God even for a single moment.

Abu Sa'id Ibn Abi'L-Khayr (Persian mystic and poet known for his service to the poor)

And does it all without fuss or the need for bags of posiive feedback or an analysis as to whether his Myers-Briggs profile had shifted.
