The leaves are turning the heat of the summer is passing. The days have been filled with natural disasters, violence and hatred. The world needs our discernment, our compassion, and our right actions. Time to release the old, let go of beliefs, attachments, fear, aversion or whatever holds you in a state of constriction with unconscious patterns directing your life. Now is the time to go inward to reconnect with your values & integrity. Be the light that you are!
In a Tree House
will someday split you open
even if your life is now a cage,
For a divine seed, the crown of destiny,
is hidden and sown on an ancient, fertile plain
that you hold the title to.
Love will surely bust you wide open
into an unfettered, blooming new galaxy
A life-giving radiance will come,
O look again within yourself,
For I know you were once the elegant host
To all the marvels in creation.
From a sacred crevice in your body,
a bow rises each night
and shoots your soul into God.
Behold the Beautiful One
from the vantage point of Love.
He is conducting the affairs
of the whole universe
in a tree house – on a limb
in your heart.
translated from Hafiz by Daniel Ladinsky.
