The Path to Unknown Destiny: Life

All of us live the magnificent journey of life with our due share of ups and downs, twists and turns. Some of us get astray - just to back in time. Others forget the right path.


Reminds of Rumi's one of the very few things I've read:

O furious Wind, I am only a straw before you;

How could I know where I will be blown next?

Whoever claims to have made a pact with Destiny

Reveals himself a liar and a fool;

What is any of us but a straw in a storm?

How could anyone make a pact with a hurricane?

God is working everywhere his massive Resurrection;

How can we pretend to act on our own?

In the hand of Love I am like a cat in a sack;

Sometimes Love hoists me into the air,

Sometimes Love flings me into the air,

Love swings me round and round His head;


Hope the other end of this path be always blessed, Inshah Allah, for all of us!
