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.

Hafiz 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 in 
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 
the impossibility
that there is anything
but Grace.

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