Shedding Light in the Darkness

Hafiz for the Dawn of 2017

persian-809945_1280I have learned so much from God that I can no longer call myself a Christian, a Hindu, a Muslim, a Buddhist, a Jew.

The Truth has shared so much of itself with me

That I can no longer call myself

A man, a woman, an angel,

Or even a pure Soul.

Love has befriended Hafiz so completely

It has turned to ash and freed me

Of every concept and image my mind has ever known.

14th century mystical Persian poet Hafiz. His collected works are regarded as a pinnacle of Persian literature.
