Of the Soul

Of the Soul

“Oh soul,
you worry too much.
You have seen your own strength.
You have seen your own beauty.
You have seen your golden wings.
Of anything less,
why do you worry?
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).
I met them at the top of Dasaswamedh Ghat, nearby a little vegetable market where they were cleaning metallic vessels and cups after having their dinner.
They were quiet, maybe they were tired.
Anyone could have felt a presence, out of the soul fo those ladies…
