Daily Meditation: Leaving

We all need help maintaining our personal spiritual practice. We hope that these daily meditations, prayers and mindful awareness exercises can be part of bringing spirituality alive in your life.

Today's meditation features a poem by 14th century Persian poet Hafez. The poem reminds us to stay with God, or our sense of the divine, once we find it and come more fully into ourselves.

No More Leaving by Hafez

At
Some point
Your relationship
With God
Will
Become like this:

Next time you meet Him in the forest
Or on a crowded city street

There won't be anymore

"Leaving."

That is,

God will climb into
Your pocket.

You will simply just take

Yourself

Along!
