Got any exterior criticism holding you back?

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.
