I absorb the shining and now I see the ocean, billions of simultaneous motions moving in me.

Make peace with the universe.Take joy in it.
It will turn to gold.Resurrection will be now.
Every moment, a new beauty.

Everybody got all the money
Everybody got all the beautiful clothes
Everybody got all the flowers
I don’t have one single rose
I feel a change coming on
And the fourth part of the day is already gone

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. Mevlana Rumi

I started looking for you

The minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.
Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.
They’re in each other all along.
Mevlana Rumi
