Words of Wisdom about the Body

Because of our Wisdom, by Hafiz

In many parts of the world water is
Scarce and precious.
People sometimes have to walk
A great distance
Then carry heavy jugs upon their
Heads.

Because of our wisdom, we will travel
Far for love.
All movement is a sign of
Thirst.

Most speaking really says,
“I am hungry to know you.”
Every desire of your body is holy;
Every desire of your body is
Holy.

Dear one,
Why wait until you are dying
To discover that divine
Truth?

There is some kiss we want with our whole lives,
the touch of spirit on the body.
