Thinking we make the moves


Maybe something to remember when something bothers us today, and we take it very seriously….

What is the difference
Between your experience of life
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’m afraid you still think

You have a thousand serious moves.

 Hafiz, Tripping Over Joy
