“The sublime chess game with God”

 

What is the difference
Between your experience of Existence
And that of a Saint?

The Saint knows
That the spiritual path
Is a sublime chess game with God

And that 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.

Hafiz
