Of the Soul
you worry too much.
You have seen your own strength.
You have seen your own beauty.
You have seen your golden wings.

You are in truth
the soul, of the soul, of the soul.”
(Jalal ad-Din Rumi – Persian Poet and Mystic, 1207-1273)
Those women came a long way to worship in Varanasi (Benaras).

They were quiet, maybe they were tired.
Anyone could have felt a presence, out of the soul fo those ladies…
