Hafiz, the Persian poet in the 1300’s, wrote in his poetry about having a love affair with life itself, right in the midst of our daily living.
He writes this one sweet little poem that I want to offer you today:
“We have all come to the right place. We all sit in God’s classroom. Now, the only thing left for us to do my dear, is to stop throwing spitballs for a while.”
Can you imagine how wonderful that thought is –that here we are and the curriculum is perfect? We have our daily life and in a sense we have been throwing spitballs saying that we want things to be differen –change this, make that. Rather than continue to ‘throw spitballs,’ let’s embrace, open up to and invite the curriculum of love to have its way with us this day.
