Damn Thirsty!


The Fish needs to say,

Something ain’t right about this

Camel ride—–

And I’m

Feeling so damn


From the book The Gift  Poems by Hafiz

Interpretations by Danile Ladinsky

Beloved Ones, you are like fish on a camel ride here on this wonderful place called earth.

You are a wayfarer and a stranger in a strange land.

Just  like a fish out of water!

Trust me, the camels of your cares and concerns will be fine, but you need some water quick!

Many of us are “so damn thirsty” we don’t even recognize that we are, because we have ignored it for such a very… very long time.

We thirst for belonging, acceptance, love…and all manner of things that may be difficult to locate in the desert of our illusions about life.

Most of all, we thirst for our True Home and the Oneness with Spirit that we forgot as we bumped along on our camels.

Spirit beckons! Always calling…”Come and drink from the well of life in the shade of this oasis… and you will never thirst again!”

What do you think?

Is it time for a drink?

    This is such an accurate reflection of the human condition. We focus more on the lesser aspect of our being, Human, and so much less on the greater aspect of our reality, Spirit. We forget that we are made in the image and likeness of God and as we become increasingly bombarded by worldly distractions we stray even further from the reality that we are Spiritual Beings.
    It’s time we ditch this camel ride. There is just not enough water in this hump to sustain both of us!
