Weekend Benediction

July 17, 2009

Hey, friends!  Happy Friday.

Last night, after arriving back to Izzy’s place in Paris, I had a wonderful Skype conversation with a dear friend in California.  At one point the topic turned to love, surrender, and letting go of the illusion of control.  Reminded me of one of my favorite love poems, by Iranian Sufi poet Hafez.

The Sun Never Says

All this time
The Sun never says to the Earth,

“You owe me.”

What happens
With a love like that,
It lights the whole sky.

With metta and prayers for the people of Iran today.

Take care, everyone, and be well.  See you Monday!
