My daughter was digging through her closet and found a small print with a quotation that touched her so deeply that it made her cry. When I asked what it was, she told me:
“I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being.” – Hafez of Shiraz. Hafez (aka Hafiz) was a Persian mystic poet similar to Rumi.
I found this quotation so moving that I decided to make something that I could give to my daughter so she could carry it with her wherever she went. What I came up with is this versatile 30x42mm medallion that says “You are loved” on the back. With holes at both ends of the oval, it can be carried as a coin, or attached to chains, key chains, bracelets, or ribbon. With so many ways to carry it, you can find a version for just about everyone you love. How many people is that?
And because it says “You are loved” rather than “I love you,” it can be given by communities and organizations to whole groups of people who are in need of support and encouragement.
To make it even more special, we are packaging them in satin pouches with a gift card with another uplifting quotation – this one from Baha’u’llah.
O SON OF BEING!
Thou art My lamp and My light is in thee. Get thou from it thy radiance and seek none other than Me. For I have created thee rich and have bountifully shed My favor upon thee. -Baha’u’llah
The two quotations reinforce the message that we are each filled with divine light. The back of the card has lines marked “For” and “From.”

Here is a picture of the silver-plated medallion on a key chain that shows the satin pouch and accompanying card. The key chain is particularly nice for boys and men who might not wear a necklace.
