“Everyone in the ballroom tonight will
be my special guest.”
How then would you treat them when you arrived?
And Hafiz knows that there is no one in
this world who is not standing upon
His jeweled dance floor.
I love this poem by Hafiz, the Sufi poet. It is an invitation for us to believe that each and every person that we meet is worthy – of our respect and caring. And, why would we want to feel any other way?
But, the complexity and enormity of our world is the challenge.
Each day we become aware of still another problem that needs our attention. And, how can one person pay attention to so many issues?
