“Why Aren't We Screaming Drunks?
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
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
Breaks the wine
Glass.” ~ Hafiz (Daniel Ladinsky)
How many times a day do I judge someone as ‘less than’? How many times a day do I stop and ask myself: “What aspect of myself do I not particularly like in this person?” rather than blindly judging. Trump is such a great lesson for me and so many others. There is an aspect of the Donald within me that I despise. Time to heal that aspect and see the Donald for who he truly is: an innocent child of God masquerading as an arsehole.
