The short Rumi verse is accompanied by a wonderful picture. The trees blend with the sky and clouds.

My soul is from elsewhere,

I’m sure of that,

and I intend to end up there.

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and spent the last 14 years teaching in an incrediable hybrid school setting. My dissertation topic and research were how teachers experience becoming who teachers, as human subjects. For me, teaching is a calling and vocation that allows me to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what will call me. We have begun a small consulting and leadership firm called Rocky River Leadership & Consulting Ltd.

  1. Rumi maybe speaking of a place where the ego is non existent, a place reached by traveling the road less traveled.

    Our soul is from the expansive side of our mind, a place few reach and not for long in a whole lifetime.

    Maybe where Rumi speaks his soul being.

  2. Most would agree it is hard.

    I have made a model that takes a lot,of the difficulty away from practicing.

    It is hard because the brain likes to be go fast, be involved in complex mental challenges.

    Here is a post addressing why meditation/Mindfulness seems so hard.
