do you see??

do you look through the eyes of a judge??
or do you see through the eyes of your heart??

be cause if you close the eyes of your heart..


you will miss the beauty of the signs


that surround you..
in your home and garden

and of the world.. that surrounds you


do you sometimes find hard to see things to be grateful??..
or feel you are misjudged.. unloved.. and even rejected..
even working with people and therefore being a very close withness to people's personal drama.. sometimes tragedy.. I am able to forget.. what is the most important thing on earth..
I do find life hard and unjust.. sometimes..
and have to pinch myself.. to show myself that life is a wonderful gift..
and as we are not sure how long will our life last.. and that all the rest is unknown too..
we have to savor every moment.. every breath.. every word.. in kindness we have to pass our limited time ..

life is the most important and precious thing.. so don't spend it ..

*********************


Drink all your passion,
and be a disgrace.

Close both eyes
to see with the other eye.

Open your hands,
if you want to be held.

Sit down in this circle.

***

Be empty of worrying.
Think of who created thought!

Why do you stay in prison
when the door is so wide open?

Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking.
Live in silence

***
Mevlana Rumi
