Inspiration Prompt – Your Eyes Behold The World

February 9th, 2009 by Avital

Your Eyes Behold The World
[Photo by: John Steven Fernandez]

“My heart is so small
it’s almost invisible.
How can You place such big sorrows in it?”
“Look,” He answered,
“your eyes are even smaller,
yet they behold the world.”

By: Jalal ad-Din Rumi

This week I feel a little bit under the weather… It might be all the boxes that finally arrived from Ireland, or it might be the uncustomary rainy days in the Bay area in California or it might be just a virus I caught… Either way, I didn’t want to leave your Monday without an inspiration prompt, so I am sharing a stunning picture I spot on Flickr and an inspiring quote of the Persian philosopher, Jalal ad-Din Rumi.

Have a great week!

    When you feel under the whether philosophy is not a very good thing to ponder about-my trick to get out of it is to tell myself for how long am I going to stay in this. And plant what do I do to start new like : I am miserable untill tommorow morning but then I get up have a long bath and everything is gone” Get well soon. Happy Tu Bishvat!

    This photo is so haunting. It is as if his eyes can behold the world but can’t escape from the chains that may be in his life.
