Have you ever heard of the 14th-Century Persian poet named Hafiz? He is another one of my favorite poets and manages to beautifully capture such profound ideas in short phrases. The line in the photo comes from a short poem that says,
“One day the sun admitted
I am just a shadow.
I wish I could show you
The infinite incandescence
That has cast my brilliant image!
I wish I could show you,
When you are lonely or in darkness,
The Astonishing Light
Of your own Being!”
Thom and I will be traveling during the next few weeks. But no worries! I have a couple of awesome posts lined up from fellow guest bloggers, as well as a surprise or two. So, no matter what you have planned for yourself, never, ever forget the astonishing light of your being!
