When a true lover of God goes into a tavern, the tavern becomes his chamber of prayer, but when a winebibber goes into the same chamber, it becomes his tavern. In everything we do, it is our hearts that make the difference, not our outer appearance. True lovers of God do not judge other people on how they look or who they are. When a true lover of God stares at someone, he keeps both eyes closed instead opens a third eye – the eye that sees the inner realm.
-Shams Tabrizi (Poet Rumi’s spiritual teacher from 13th century)
