Tripping Over Joy


What is the difference
 Between your experience of Existence
 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 am afraid you still think
 You have a thousand serious moves.

― Hafiz, I Heard God Laughing: Poems of Hope and Joy

One of the most fun aspects of shifting one’s perspective and finding Joy is how much can come into your view right where you are standing when you look at things juuuuuuussssssttttttt right. I wish you clarity and a lot of fun playing.
