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.«

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 My own father once said to me, »You are not mad enough to be put in a madhouse, and not withdrawn enough to be put in a monastery.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.«
