Nasrudin is a sort of ‘holy fool’ popular in the Middle East. Some of his tales have a sort of joke punchline, some contain spiritual teaching and some are just plain daft! Here’s a very short one to start with.
The Value of Truth
‘If you want Truth,’ Nasrudin told a group of Seekers, ‘you will have to pay for it.’
‘But why should you have to pay for something like Truth?’ asked one of the company.
‘Have you not noticed,’ said Nasrudin, ‘that it is the scarcity of a thing which determines its value?’
I am retired and live in the NE of England. I try and keep active and interested and involved in a variety of activities: yoga, walking, writing and, since Sept 2019, taking groups round art galleries. We discuss what we have seen and share thoughts about how the works of art have affected us personally. Hopefully I can set up another blog/website about this latter subject before the New Year. My reading includes poetry, fiction, philosophy and other non-fiction. My writing reflects my interests, as you can see if you browse my blog-posts. A number of my poems and other writings have been published online.
