Now, why not consider
A lasting truce with yourself and …
Now is the time to understand
That all your ideas of right and wrong
Were just a child’s training wheels
To be laid aside
When you can finally live
Hafiz is a divine envoy
Whom the Beloved
Has written a holy message upon.
My dear, please tell me,
Why do you still
Throw sticks at your heart
What is it in that sweet voice inside
That incites you to fear?
Now is the time for the world to know
That every thought and action is sacred
This is the time
For you to deeply compute the impossibility
That there is anything
Now is the season to know
That everything you do
~ Hafiz “The Gift”
What is that which we can keep giving/having more of without ever feeling depleted/full?
Need may be the mother of Invention. But who’s the mother of Need? Fear or Greed?
“Go to your fields and your gardens, and you shall learn that it is the pleasure of the bee to gather honey of the flower, But it is also the pleasure of the flower to yield its honey to the bee. For to the bee a flower is a fountain of life, And to the flower a bee is a messenger of love, And to both, bee and flower, the giving and the receiving of pleasure is a need and an ecstasy. People, …be in your pleasures like the flowers and the bees.” -Kahlil Gibran, “The Prophet”
