     Stop Being So Religious

    What

    Do sad people have in

    Common?

    It seems

    They have all built a shrine

    To the past

    And often go there

    And do a strange wail and

    Worship.

    What is the beginning of

    Happiness?

    It is to stop being

    So religious

    Like That.

    (“The Gift” – versions of Hafiz by Daniel Ladinsky)

     

    This reading reminds me of the above poem by Hafiz. Here Hafiz implores one to let go of the past and unnecessary suffering.
