“Love will surely burst you wide open…”

Will someday split you open
Even if your life is now a cage

Love will surely burst you wide open
Into an unfettered blooming new galaxy
A life-giving radiance will come…
~ Hafiz


Daniel Ladinsky, a well-known English translator of Hafiz said: “Language when it mingles with spirit does a tremendous service to the world: it empowers and changes lives; it awakens love, valor, and wonder. The words of Hafiz are unique, and they become cherished friends to the heart – for they constantly comfort and free.”

Isn’t life about cherishing all that is? Wisdom teaches me that everything, eventually, can be understood. Learn to be open to all that is happening. Let it “split you open”…
