About me

cs ambassador, more than 400 people hosted,more at:
http://www.couchsurfing.org/people/metalot/

* I love cultural experience, come over
* easy life style, watching&listening, communicating and learning people
* I am overly curious and committed person, but empathic and sensitive, so take it easy - open up
* Happiness lies inside. External changes (places/people/situations/...) are only possible causes for the mind states. Happiness can be attained without external turbulence. Love, respect, peace and friendship.
* Come, come,
whoever you are.
Wanderer, worshipper,
lover of living,
it doesn't matter
Ours is not a caravan of despair.
Come even
if you have broken your vow a thousand times,
Come, yet again, come, come. ...
Lovers think they are looking for each other,
but there is only one search:
wandering
This world is wandering that, both inside one transparent sky.
In here there is no dogma and no heresy.
My head is bursting with the joy of the unknown.
My heart is expanding a thousand fold.
Every cell, taking wings, flies about the world.
All seek separately the many faces of my Beloved. ...
This is a gathering of Lovers.
In this gathering there is no high, no low, no smart, no ignorant, no special assembly, no grand discourse, no proper schooling required.
There is no master, no disciple.
This gathering is more like a drunken party, full of tricksters, fools, mad men and mad women. This is a gathering of Lovers. Love said to me, there is nothing that is not me. Be silent. I don't know where I am. At times I plunge to the bottom of the sea, at times, rise up like the Sun. At times, the universe is pregnant by me, at times I give birth to it. A hundred souls cried out, but we are yours, we are yours, we are yours. You are the light that spoke to Moses and said I am God, I am God, I am God. I said Shams-e Tabrizi, who are you? He said, I am you, I am you, I am you. Even if you lose yourself in wrath for a hundred thousand years, at the end you will discover, it is me, who is the culmination of your dreams. Didn't I tell you not to be satisfied with the veil of this world? I am the master illusionist, it is me, who is the welcoming banner at the gate of your contentment. Didn't I tell you? I am an ocean, you are a fish; do not go to the dry land, it is me, who is your comforting body of water. Didn't I tell you? They will accuse you of all the wrongdoings, they will call you ugly names, they will make you forget it is me, who is the source of your happiness. // Jalal al-Din Muhammad Rumi (1207 - 1273) //
