The Embrace of Uncertainty

Why ponder thus the future to foresee,
and jade thy brain to vain perplexity?
Cast off thy care, leave Allah's plans to Hu-
Hu formed them all without consulting thee.

-Omar Khayyam, The Rubaiyat

  1. Most excellent advice from the Khayyam, who was greatly influenced by the Sufis :)

    Ya Haqq!
