Today – Hafiz

I do not want to step so quickly
over the beautiful line on God’s palm
as I move through earth’s
marketplace
today

I do not want to touch any object in this world
without my eyes testifying to the truth
that everything is
my Beloved

Something has happened
to my understanding of existence
that makes my heart full of wonder
and kindness

I do not
want
to step so quickly
over the sacred place on God’s body
that is right beneath
your own foot

as I dance with
precious life
today

by Hafiz

 

What can I possibly add to that?! An intention of awareness and gratitude, of going slow and appreciating deeply. What better thing to do with this day, this life, this precious planet…
