The shell of friendship

The reflection cast from friends is needed until you become with the aid of any reflector, a drawer of water from the Sea.

Know that the reflection is at first just imitation, but when it continues to recur, it turns into direct realization of truth.

Until it has become realization, don’t part from the friends who guide you – don’t break away from the shell if the raindrop hasn’t yet become a pearl.

Jalil al-Din Rumi (1207 – 73), Persia
