This poem by Hafiz, struck me first between the eyes and then through the heart. Not only is it radically applicable to my state of…mind/heart/soul…but it is also so now for many people. The moon, sun and mercury are all in Scorpio, and a solar eclipse is coming up tomorrow. These are big, radical heart opening times. As Mystic Medusa so succinctly puts it – stay stuck and you’re fuqed!
Light will someday split you open,
Even if your life is now a cage.
Little by little, you will turn into stars.
Little by little, you will turn into
The whole sweet, amorous universe.
Love will surely burst you wide open
Into an unfettered, booming new galaxy.
You will become so free in a wonderful,
Secret and pure love that flows
From a conscious, one~pointed, infinite light.
Even then, my dear, the beloved will have fulfilled
Just a fraction, just a fraction!
Of a promise he wrote upon your heart.
For a divine seed, the crown of destiny,
Is hidden and sewn on an ancient, fertile plain
You hold the title to.
O, look again within yourself,
For I know you were once the elegant host
To all the marvels in creation.
When your soul begins to ever bloom and laugh
And spin in eternal ecstasy.
O, little by little, you will turn into God.
