Break Free: Throw Wild Parties in a Tree House--On a Limb--In Your Heart!

'The heart has its reasons that reason knows nothing of.' Pascal

By the Light of the Silvery Moon

As I sit quiet and stay open, little gems--pictures, quotes, poetry and music come my way worthy of giving back to you.

I love that people, like you, gift me their favorite gems--ones that perhaps help us navigate life's challenges and times of self-doubt--or perhaps ones that make our heart and soul sing.

Today's poem, 'In a Tree House' written by Hafiz, a 13th century Persian Poet, is one of those heart-freeing gems. It was read to me one recent soft summer night by the light of a Blue Moon (2nd full moon in a month).

The poem is amazing--and well worth a slow, deliberate read. Let it seep into your heart and soul.  The picture below from Miss *EVOLutionaries on facebook showed up as I contemplated the poem. It is so clever.

Pay attention to the message in the picture and poem: Break Free.

In a Tree House
 
Light
Will someday split you open
Even if your life is now a cage,
 
For a divine seed, the crown of destiny,
Is hidden and sown on an ancient, fertile plain
You hold the title to.
 
Love will surely bust you wide open
Into an unfettered, blooming new galaxy
 
Even if your mind is now
A spoiled mule.
 
A life-giving radiance will come;
The Friend's gratuity will come--
 
O look again within yourself,
For I know you were once the elegant host
To all the marvels in creation.
 
From a sacred crevice in your body
a bow rises each night
And shoots your soul into God.
 
Behold the Beautiful Drunk Singing One:
From the lunar vantage point of love.
 
He is conducting the affairs
Of the whole universe
 
While throwing wild parties
In a tree house--on a limb
In your heart.
 
Hafiz, 13th century Persian Poet
