Begging for crusts

basket of bread

“There is a basket of fresh bread on your head, yet you go door to door asking for crusts.” ~Rumi

How often we ignore the gifts and treasures we already have in our lives, our talents, our relationships, our character, and instead we go begging for pale imitations from others thinking we are only worthy of scraps. We already have so much inside us and around us if we would only take the time to seek it and treasure it.
