“Stop acting so small.
You are the universe in ecstatic motion.”
Rumi (1207 – 1273)
You think you can define me, That I’m a tick in just one box, Like my being is a door, That a single key unlocks, But let me tell you something, I have the universe inside, I hold an untamed ocean, With a constant changing tide, I’m home to endless mountains, With tips that touch the sky, Flocks of grand migrating birds, And deserts harsh and dry, I house the wildest rivers, And a host of sweeping plains, I feel in waves of sunshine, Or in unrelenting rains, Don’t tell me that you know me, That “this right here is what you are”, I am the universe in motion, For I was born from stars.
As human beings we are hard wired to seek connection with other human beings. Being connected is the only way we can really get to know ourselves.
We all need special people in our lives who see everything we are and won’t let us be anything less. They see our potential and through their eyes, we start seeing ourselves the same way, we start re-discovering ourselves, we start realising that we do matter and can make a difference in this world.
