Hafiz and Dr. Dyer weren’t literally walking down the street. But they did have something interesting to say about life’s curriculum.
Hafiz, the Persian poet in the 1300’s, wrote about having a love affair with life itself, right in the midst of our daily living.
He wrote this sweet poem:
"We have all come to the right place. We all sit in God’s classroom. Now, the only thing left for us to do my dear, is to stop throwing spitballs for a while."
Can you imagine how wonderful that thought is -- that here we are and the curriculum is perfect?
We have our daily life and, in a sense, we have been throwing spitballs saying that we want things to be different -- change this, make that happen.
Rather than continue to 'throw spitballs,' let's embrace, open up to and invite the curriculum of love to have its way with us this day.
What do you think?
Are you choosing the curriculum of your life?
Do you have the power to change your curriculum?
Dr. Wayne Dyer had a different way of saying this, "When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."
What's been the curriculum of your life lately? You'll know it by looking at your current results.
How can your circumstances differently?
