RIP - Steve Jobs

When Steve Jobs died 5 years ago, I was sad. Despite all his shortcomings as a human, he left a deep mark on history. I learned a lot by reading his autobiography. He was a kind of a sufi baba of modern time. To quote him:

"You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future, You have to trust in something: your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life." - Steve Jobs

Very interesting! I too like Steve Jobs's many quotes.
I feel deep inside we are all "seekers" whether we are seeking consciously or unconsciously.
I just finished reading a book called The Seeker by Karan Bajaj, about a wall-street Banker's quest to find 'Answers' the book ends with an ancient Vedic phrase 'I am the seeker, the act of seeking, and the one who is sought'.

Mehnaz! I agree - we all are seekers. On extended note, it reminded me of Rumi: What you seek is seeking you.
