Find Me


If you cannot find me outside
You will not find me inside
If you cannot find me next to you
In the thousand faces around you:
Sad, hungry, vile or happy,
Visiting a thousand holy places
Will not help you see me

    Very well articulated. 'He' resides in you. The day we realise that, we take our first step to becoming better beings. (Report) Reply
