Shabbat Wisdom


I Got Kin (Hafiz, Sufi poet from Persia, c. 1320 - 1389)


Plant

So that your own heart

Will grow.


Love

So God will think,


"Ahhhhhh,

I got kin in that body!

I should start inviting that soul over

For coffee and

Rolls."


Sing

Because this is a food

Our starving world

Needs.


Laugh

Because that is the purest

Sound.

Beautiful! Thanks for sharing this. Very synchronous for me. For various reasons I've focused my heart's attention this week on the light instead of the shadow, and on growing my Self and my life into places where I and others feel truly welcome and good about being.

Plant, love, sing, laugh -- yay!

XO,

F.

The idea of having coffee and rolls with God made me chuckle. If I had to believe in a god, it would be that sort, one who shares and laughs and sings. I think it would have to be a lesser, personal god though, as if there's one BIG one, its size and scope is too frightening to contemplate
