Tripping Over Joy – What is the difference between your experience of Existence And that of a Saint?

Tripping Over Joy
What is the difference
Between your experience of Existence
And that of a saint?

The saint knows
The spiritual path
Is a sublime chess game with God

And the Beloved
Has just made such a Fantastic Move

That the saint is now continually
Tripping over Joy
And bursting out in Laughter
And saying, “I Surrender!”

Whereas, my dear,
I am afraid you still think

You have a thousand serious moves.

I heard God Laughing, Renderings of Hafiz
