By Hafiz (translated by Daniel Ladinsky)
Of course you do not do this
Still though, think about this,
Why not become the one
With that sweet moon
In the preceding poem Hafiz captures one of the most basic human desires, the desire to be loved, to connect and to be accepted with open arms into the community of humankind. He goes one step further by daring us to act in kind-- to extend our hands, hearts and words to others. To say the words that they are dying to hear.
So let’s say them:
We are ever inspired by and grateful for the amazing group of yogis and yoginis that we’ve had the opportunity to practice with at Yoga Life. You aren’t the Yoga Life community, you are Yoga Life. And we love you for that.
