The sun once glimpsed God's true nature
And has never been the same.
Thus that radiant sphere
Constantly pours its energy
Upon this earth
As does He from behind
The veil.

With a wonderful God like that
Why isn't everyone a screaming drunk?

Hafiz's guess is this:
Any thought that you are better or less
Than another man
Quickly
Breaks the wine
Glass.

I really like this line. Truly a day lived in meditation is drinking fully from the divine glass...

Namaste'

Hello Kim,

It's always a joy to hear from you...

So true, meditation is drinking fully from the divine glass.

Like the nature is perfect
perfection is in accepting the imperfect
No one is more or less
As we don't expect oranges from apple trees
why expect oneself or others to be different
While the concept of perfection lies in our mind
True beauty lies intricate detail of all things and every human being
