Don't Run And Wash Your Hands

Don't Run And Wash Your Hands

Don't run and wash your hands if the Beloved
ever offers something to you.

He knows where they have been,
out touching the Holy,
via His many forms. 

          The word, Sehnsucht, roughly translatable from German as a pleasurable yearning for some utopian thing or place is what we are all aspiring for in work. Wouldn't it be amazing to truly wake up each day and say *I'm doing what I love. I am doing what I absolutely love to do.* Remeber the Life Is Good mantra "Do what you love. Love what you do. Life is good."  
           Hafiz's mantra is a bit different, he is saying try to love what has been given to you because it has been gifted by divine appointment.
