On a recent retreat after a brief morning teaching, we were asked to take a long contemplative walk anywhere on the 600 beautiful acres of the retreat center. The retreat leader gave us this poem from Hafiz called “The Seed Cracked Open.” It caused me to think that God is always inviting us to new spiritual horizons and that dance can be lively and fun as we serve the world together. “It used to be that when I would wake in the morning I could with confidence say, “What am ‘I’ going to do?” That was before the seed was cracked open. Now Hafiz is certain: There are two of us housed in this body, doing the shopping together in the market and tickling each other while fixing the evening’s food. Now when I awake all the instruments play the same music: “God, what love-mischief can ‘We’ do for the world today?” What love-mischief have you and God been doing for the world? Let me know.
