Rumi on a Winter Morning

 

 

I woke up early this morning and took my dog for a walk. It was foggy and only a few people were out. A lonesome yellow bus collected school kids. When I returned to my room with a cup of tea, I felt like reading something inspirational, something other than the John Cheever book that lay on the bedside. So I turned to Rumi.

 

In one of the quotes, Rumi said,

 

                            “What you seek is seeking you.”

 

The words immediately filled my heart with hope, making up for the lack of sunshine on this chilly morning. If I can’t find what I am looking for, it will find me.

 

 

Jalal-ud-din Muhammad Rumi was a Persian poet and sufi.
