Here’s what freedom means to Persian poet and philosopher Rumi (1207-1273). What do you think?

Take someone who doesn’t keep score, who’s not looking to be richer, or afraid of losing, who has not the slightest interest even in his own personality: he’s free.  – Rumi

Two Inspirational Quotes

There are several defining moments in life. When we reflect upon what is most important in our lives – it always comes down to relationships. Sharing two quotes by Persian poet and mystic Rumi (1207-1273) that struck me and a photo of two love birds. I wonder where they will fly off to next.

“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.”

“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”

Vocations – What Is Yours?

Each man has his own vocation. The talent is the call. There is one direction in which all space is open to him. He has faculties silently inviting him thither to endless exertion. He is like a ship in a river; he runs against obstructions on every side but one, on that side all obstruction is taken away and he sweeps serenely over a deepening channel into an infinite sea…He has no rival. For the more truly he consults his own powers, the more difference will his work exhibit from the work of any other.

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

I am constantly reminded by my son what it’s like to be silly and a kid. Do you remember those days? Funny how we forget that when we become adults. We become so serious. Goofy gets more laughs than cool. What do you think? Hope this photo puts a smile to your face and makes you remember what matters most in life – faith, family, and love.

“The summit is believed to be the object of the climb. But its true object—the joy of living—is not in the peak itself, but in the adversities encountered on the way up. There are valleys, cliffs, streams, precipices, and slides, and as he walks these steep paths, the climber may think he cannot go any farther, or even that dying would be better than going on. But then he resumes fighting the difficulties directly in front of him, and when he is finally able to turn and look back at what he has overcome, he finds he has truly experienced the joy of living while on life’s very road.”

– Eiji Yoshikawa
