One Who Can Quit Seeing Himself




I want one who can quit seeing himself,
fill with God and, instead of being
irritated by interruption and daily
resentments, feel those as kindness.
(Rumi—translated by Coleman Barks)

"The eyes of the dragonfly are one of the most amazing and awe inspiring sights. Given almost 80% of the insect’s brain power is dedicated to its sight and the fact that it can see in all 360 degrees around it, it symbolizes the uninhibited vision of the mind and the ability to see beyond the limitations of the human self. "
