Soul of all souls, life of life-you are That
Seen and unseen, moving and unmoving-you are That
The road that leads to the City is endless;
Go without head or feet
And you'll already be there.
What else could you be?
You are That.

When you were a child, what did you think you were going to be at the age you at at now?
When you were a teenager, what did you think you would be at your age now?
I would contend that it is very difficult for younger people such as children and young adults (and even some older adults) to imagine what they will become. Oh, granted there are always exceptions to this, but for most of us, we just don't know and cannot even imagine. I certainly would not have guessed that I would be an artist working in a handful of mediums. Granted, I don't make a living doing this, but this is indeed what I am.
I sure would've liked to have had the chance to hang out with Rumi-such wisdom and insight! Wouldn't you? There are so many questions I'd like to ask-although I would be content to just hangout and observe in silence, really.
Are we ever content with who we are? I suppose it doesn't matter if we are or aren't. Because,
you are That
