A Thousand Serious Moves

Find Joy in The Present – Awakening The Core

This poem by Hafiz is a good reminder about the choices we make every day and every moment.  Do you move with the flow of life and appreciate where you are at any given time?  … or do you feel like you have a thousand serious moves to make between now and happiness?  When you feel stress – take a deep breath, acknowledge the stress and where it lives in your body. Then think about what you can learn from that present moment, let it go and move forward.  You can find happiness, love and light any place you go.

Tripping Over Joy

What is the difference
between your experience of Existence
and that of a saint?

The saint knows
that the spiritual path
is a sublime chess game with God

and that the Beloved
has just made such a Fantastic Move

that the saint is now continually
tripping over Joy
and bursting out in Laughter
and saying, “I Surrender”.

Whereas, my dear,
I am afraid you still think
you have a thousand serious moves.

~ Hafiz
