Not The Rituals

“Don’t judge the way other people connect to God; to each his own way and his own prayer.

“God does not take us at our word. He looks deep into our hearts. It is not the ceremonies or rituals that make a difference, but whether our hearts are sufficiently pure or not.”

~Shams Tabrizi, Rumi’s Sun: The Teachings of Shams of Tabriz
