My Yoga teacher

My yoga teacher sent me a Hafiz poem as part of my 30 Day yoga challenge...

Today's Quote/poem:

"Your Mother and My Mother" -- Hafiz

Fear is the cheapest room in the house.
I would like to see you living in better conditions,
For your mother and my mother were friends.

I know the innkeeper in this part of the Universe,
Get some rest tonight,
come to my verse tomorrow,
We'll go speak to the Friend together.

I should not make any promises, but I know that if you pray
Somewhere in this world -- something good will happen
God wants to see more love and playfulness in your eyes
For that is your greatest witness to Him
Your soul and my soul once sat together in the Beloved's womb
playing footsie.

Your heart and my heart
are very, very old friends.

Today's Question:

What can you do to bring some Love and Playfulness in your eyes?

A bit about me:
I do many things to bring love and playfulness into my eyes. I smile at strangers, put words into feelings with my patients, give love to anyone who will receive it and smile in wonder at sunsets and how small we seem here in comparison to the world surrounding us.

I bring love into my eyes whenever I gaze at my husband. We have been married for 10 years in July and if it is possible I feel we have shared the same gaze forever in many different forms and who knows maybe even played footsie with one another's souls......


  1. Oh this is wonderful thank you for sharing this.
    I am wordless.

  2. Thanks Marie,

    Just speaking from my soul...a theme of 2011

    Love & Light,


  3. Hello Yvonne, so lovely to see you're back blogging! Thanks for sharing such a beautiful poem. And a lovely reminder to bring more love and playfulness into everyday life ... I can become a bit serious at times if I'm not careful! xx


It makes my day when you say what you want to say.....
