Now is the time

Hafez (1326–1390) always has something to say worth hearing in any language or century.


Now is the time to know
that all you do
is sacred.

Now,
why not consider
a lasting truce 
with yourself and God.

Now is the time 
to understand
that all your ideas of right and wrong
were just child's training wheels
to be laid aside 
When you can 
finally live
with veracity
and love.

Hafez is a divine envoy
whom the Beloved has
written
a holy message 
upon—

My dear, 
please tell me,
why 
do you still throw sticks
at your heart 
and God?
What is it within 
that sweet voice inside
that incites 
you to fear?

Now is the time 
for the world to know
that every thought 
and action 
is sacred.

This is the time 
for you
to deeply comprehend 
this sheer impossibility
that there is anything
but Grace.

Now 
is the season to know
that everything 
you do 
is 
sacred.
