This Place Where You Are Now - Hafiz

This place where you are now
God circled on a map for you.

Wherever your eyes and arms and heart can move
against the earth and sky,
the Beloved has bowed there -

Our Beloved has bowed there

knowing you were coming.

I could tell you a priceless secret about
your real worth, dear pilgrim,

But any unkindness to yourself,
any confusion about others,

Will keep one from accepting

the grace,  the love,  the sublime freedom

Divine knowledge always offers you.



With permission, translation by Daniel Ladinsky
