When I struggle to keep my balance in a busy life, this poem by the Persian poet Hafiz re-connects me to my self:
Your whole mind and body have been tied
To the foot of the Devine Elephant
With a thousand golden chains.
Now, begin to rain intelligence and compassion
Upon all your tender, wounded cells
And realize the profound absurdity
That you can ever go Anywhere
Or do Anything
Without God’s will.
