Sharing a Wednesday reflection in written, instead of spoken, form today. Hafiz’ words reflect the voice of our Creator when looking upon us: “Do you know how beautiful you are?”
Ponder that today friends: Do you know how beautiful you are?
“Do you know how beautiful you are? I think not, my dear. For as you talk of God,
I see great parades with colorful bands steaming from your mind and heart,
carrying wonderful and secret messages to every corner of this world.
I see saints bowing in the mountains, hundreds of miles away, to the wonder
of sounds that break into light from your most common words.
Speak to me of your mother, your father, your cousins, and your friends.
Tell me of animals and birds you know. Awaken your legion of wings–let them soar wild and free in the sky and begin to sing to God. Let’s all begin to sing to God!
Do you know how beautiful you are? I think not, my dear.
Yet Hafiz could set your upon a stage and worship your forever!”
