The Best 'City' In The World
I used to have dreams of living in New York, California or London someday. Something about those cities has really enchanted me. But now i realize that it's not a matter of where you are, but it's a matter of who you live with, cause in the end you will realize that all you really need is to be with your beloved, no matter where you are!
Rumi have expressed it beautifully in his poem:
ONCE a beloved asked her lover: "Friend,
You have seen many places in the world!
Now - which of all these cities was the best?
He said: "The city where my sweetheart lives!"
I also believe that the term 'city' does not necessarily only the physical city with all the tall buildings and it habitants and attractions. As we are now moving from one city to the other by now. The city of dream to the city of sorrow to the city of madness to the city of joy to the city of fun and so on and so forth.
The city exist within is, through our daily life.
Then it came to my senses that it doesn't matter what condition or situation that we are involving with, as long as our heart is with our Beloved. Then we absolutely are going to be okay... :)
