I am in the midst of an epic battle. My rational mind is at war with my inner knowing. Fear is doing its best to not be drowned out by love and trust.
It’s ugly. I’m exhausted. But I think I’m winning.
Here’s what Hafiz* had to say to me tonight when I asked a question and opened to a page;
“I wish I could show you,
When you are lonely or in darkness,
The Astonishing Light
Of your own Being!“
We have all come to the right place.
We all sit in God’s classroom.
The only thing left for us to do, my dear,
Is to stop
Throwing spitballs for a while.
