Your Sickness Is From You

  “دَواؤُكَ فيكَ وَما تُبصِرُ
وَدَاؤُكَ مِنكَ وَما تَشعُرُ
أَتَزعُمُ أَنَّكَ جُرمٌ صَغير
وَفيكَ اِنطَوى العالَمُ الأَكبَرُ
فَأَنتَ الكِتابُ المُبينُ الَّذي
بِأَحرُفِهِ يَظهَرُ المُضَمَرُ
وَما حاجَةٌ لَكَ مِن خارِجٍ
وَفِكرُكَ فيكَ وَما تُصدِرُ”

Your sickness is from you, but you do not perceive it, and remedy id within
you, but you not sense it. You presume you are a small entity, but within
you is enfolded the entire Universe. You are indeed the evident book, by
whose alphabet the hidden becomes manifest. Therefore you have no need to
look beyond yourself. What you seek is within you, if only you reflect.
-Imam Ali (AS)
