Every Rumi quote is worth pondering over, but there are some which become our ultimate favorites, not just because they sooth our mind but our soul too. The impact it has on our hearts can completely change our approach towards life.There is one such Rumi Quote I have always been in love with, my favorite, which seems ever more mysterious with every read, ‘The Reed’. Yes, the Reed! “Listen to the reed and the tale it tells … how it sings of separation.”
There are so many things that I want to write about right now. Time, the wisdom of youth, the power of communication, relationships, love, silence, all those special people I met recently, unexpected gifts of kindness I’ve received continuously lately, my latest travels, the men I’ve loved, the softness of my children’s hearts, the fresh smell of green earth and trees, the soft squishy sinking feeling of mud underneath my feet, the blessings of good health & precious friendships and all the constant opportunities I am lucky to get to help others around me.
In the past few days, I have been noticing my mind ‘wanting’ something so badly. My little mind spent days ‘wanting and pining’ for that thing. The more it wanted, the more restless and moody I became. So I decided to sit back and watch it to understand where this wanting was coming from.
