Valentine’s Day:  A day to celebrate Love.  candy heart

The day after:  Are you still celebrating?

Love is not candy hearts and red roses and chocolates, although they can be a fun way to celebrate.

Love is so much more than we even know. We have barely scratched the surface of how to live in love.  Teilhard de Chardin says: “Love is the most powerful and still the most unknown energy of the world.”

Today, I offer you a poem by Hafiz (below), and a yoga practice that goes like this:

Look in the eyes of everyone you meet today, and see your beloved.

lovemeloveyouWith That Moon Language, by Hafiz (as translated by Daniel Ladinsky)

Admit something:
Everyone you see, you say to them,
“Love me.”

Of course you do not do this out loud;
Otherwise
Someone would call the cops.

Still though, think about this,
This great pull in us
To connect.

Why not become the one
Who lives with a full moon in each eye
That is always saying,

With that sweet moon
Language

What every other eye in this world
Is dying to
Hear?


~~

“A universal love is not only psychologically possible: it is the only complete and final way in which we are able to love.”  ~  Teilhard de Chardin
