Wisdom is like the rain.
Its source is unlimited, but it comes down according to the season.
Grocers put sugar in a bag, but their supply of sugar is not the amount in the bag.
When you come to a grocer, he has sugar in abundance.
But he sees how much money you have brought and gives accordingly.
Your currency on this Path is resolution and faith, and you are taught according to your resolution and faith.
When you come seeking sugar, they examine your bag to see what its capacity is, then they measure out accordingly.

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِي
treat everyone equally, whether they are kings or paupers; old or young. know that humankind is one body, and individuals are its members. a body is not a whole without its parts. the rights of the man of knowledge is respect, the rights of the ignorant one is advice, the right of the heedless one is to be awakened, the right of the child is compassion and love.
