Something For A Friday
We have a lot going on in our state, in our country, and in our personal lives right now. This poem, by Hafiz, a Persian poet, struck a chord for me as I navigate all of it:
I sometimes forget that I was created for Joy.
My mind is too busy. My Heart is too heavy for me to remember that I have been called to dance the Sacred dance of life.
I was created to smile To Love To be lifted up And to lift others up.
O’ Sacred One Untangle my feet from all that ensnares. Free my soul. That we might Dance and that our dancing might be contagious.
Here is to this kind of contagion.
