And for No Reason



For no reason

Jumping - for no reason - eFF-BKK

I start skipping like a child.


For no reason

I turn into a leaf

That is carried so high

I kiss the Sun’s mouth

And dissolve.


For no reason

A thousand birds

Choose my head for a conference table,

Start passing their

Cups of wine

And their wild songbooks all around.


For every reason in existence

I begin to eternally,

To eternally laugh and love!

When I turn into a leaf

And start dancing,

I run to kiss our beautiful Friend

And I dissolve in the Truth

That I Am.”

– Hafiz, translated by Daniel Ladinsky, in the wonderful book, The Gift (1999)

This is so true. It’s not about reason at all. It’s about the heart and the connection flowing through us. It’s about us dancing.

Have you had this feeling of joy, of being carried high, high, high to the Sun and dissolving?
