  • Even after all this time the sun never says to the earth,
    "you owe me." Look what happens with a love like that.
    It lights the whole sky. Hafiz

    You and I, like the sun and moon, are one Infinite Soul in two bodies.
    We are at once wind and dancing trees, waves and welcoming shore.
    We are both cloud and sky, music and flute, storm and sunshine, paint and canvas.
    We are breath and breathing, garden and fountain, orchard and harvest.

    You and I, we are at once all these things and also none of them.
    We are everything and nothing. Like Rumi and Shams, we live
    beyond finite distinctions. We are something else entirely, unnamable,
    an alchemy which cannot be reduced to words, unless whispered,
    as a secret, only once, every ten thousand years, in God’s ear:

    “ ………………………………….”
