Zgodba za dušo: Račka

Sufijski svetnik Šems ed Din Tabrizi pripoveduje o sebi tole zgodbo:

Že kot otroka so me imeli za posebneža. Nihče meni razumel. Moj lastni oče mi je nekoč dejal: »Za norišnico nisi dovolj nor, za samostan ne dovolj poduhovljen. Res ne vem, kaj bi s teboj.«

Odgovoril sem: »Nekoč so kokoši podtaknili račje jajce. Ko se je račka izvalila, je pridno tekala za svojo kokošjo materjo, dokler nista prišli do ribnika. Račka jo je ubrala naravnost v vodo, kokoš pa je na bregu zaskrbljeno kokodakala.
Vidiš, dragi oče, stopi sem v ocean in spoznal, da sem v njem doma. In res nimaš vzroka, da bi mi kaj očital, če si se odločil, da boš sam raje ostal na kopnem.«

(Slovenian above | English below)

The Sufi saint shams of Tabriz tells the following story about himself:

I have been considered a misfit since my childhood. No one seemed to understand me. My own father once said to me, »You are not mad enough to be put in a madhouse, and not withdrawn enough to be put in a monastery. I don’t know what to do with you.«

I replied, »A duck’s egg was once put under a hen. When the egg was hatched the duckling walked about with the mother hen until they came to a pond. The duckling went straight into the water. The hen stayed clucking anxiously on land.
Now, dear father, I have walked into the ocean and find in it my home. You can hardly blame me if you choose to stay on the shore.«
