Joseph and the Mirror

Rumi

A friend of Joseph’s came to visit him after returning from a long journey.

“What present have you brought me?” Joseph asked

What could I bring you,” the friend replied that you don’t already have??”

But” he added, because you are so beautiful, and nothing exists in all the world more beautiful than you, I have brought you a mirror, so you can know the joy at every moment of seeing your own face.”

Is there anything that God doesn’t have already that you could give Him?

Is there anything that God could need that you could possible provide?

All you are here for, and the entire meaning of the Path of Love, is to bring before God a heart bright as a mirror, so God can see His own face in it.
