Self according to Tagore

January 28, 2010

My eyes strayed far and wide before I shut them and said “Here art thou!” The question and the cry “Oh, where?” melt into tears of a thousand streams and deluge the world with the flood of the assurance “I am!”

Rabindranath Tagore, Gitanjali 12.


I feel the beginning, see. And it’s wonderful, if a little sad, too.
