Philosophical Fridays – Can You Recognise Me?

I am not this hair, I am not this skin, I am the soul that lives within. – Rumi


Day 5: Hook ’em with a quote – Rumi

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

This quotation is one of my favourites – short and to the point!

I spend many years fighting everything, building a bigger soap box, wanting to change things, people, the world!

It wore me out and nearly drove me insane.

When I reached the point, on the cusp of madness or genius, the lightbulb lit up, bright and clear.

At that point, on that cusp, so finely balanced, lay wisdom and I realised that the only way I was going to change my world was by going within and changing myself.

I have never looked back!
