A GIFT FOR YOU

amaana.org

This came to my inbox this morning and is so lovely I must share it. I adore the ancient mystics Rumi and Hafiz, who take loving life to ecstatic heights.


Start seeing everything as God

But keep it a secret
Become like a man who is awestruck
and nourished, listening to a golden nightingale
sing in a beautiful foreign language
while God nests invisibly upon its tongue.
Hafiz, who can you tell in this world
That when a dog runs up to you
wagging its ecstatic tail,
you bend down and whisper in its ear
"Beloved, I am so glad that you are happy to see me,
Beloved, I am so glad, so very glad, that you have come."



  - Hafiz
