A young man with short brown hair asked, “Syaikha, even when we have a dream, it is better if we play small roles is it not? Pursuing our dreams is not only a difficult life but we may offend others too. We may make others jealous or upset. They would think we are too ambitious.”
Nasheva gave the young man a comforting smile. With a calm voice she then said,
O young heart of Zanaida,
No role is small, for every role is divine in the heart of the Universe
No role is small as long as you play it with love and passion
But once your heart whispers you a dream, it is the destiny of your soul
Remember that your dream is a sweet tune whispered to your soul by eternity,
And the tune is not whispered unless you are given the power to turn it into a song
It is not your fault if you shine but others only want to shrink in the dark
It is their fault not wanting to shine when they are given the immense light in their heart.
Your shining is not you trying to outshine others, but your shining is the glow of a pearl in the darkness of the ocean
Your shining is the smile of a star in the dark face of the nights
A beautiful night is one adorned by the smile of myriads of stars
What happens if each star does not shine in fear of offending others?
What happens if each star hides its light in fear of making others insecure?
Isn’t it because all stars shine that we have nights that blow our mind and bloom our heart?
One star that shines invites others to glow, even in the most miserable night.
And as your soul shines, the light automatically invites others to shine.
As you liberate yourself from darkness, your action invites others to enter the World of Light.
