I sometimes forget that I was created for joy;
My mind is too busy, my heart is too heavy
Heavy for me to remember that I have been called to dance
The sacred dance for life.
I was created to smile, to love, to be lifted up and lift others up
O sacred one, untangle my feet from all that ensnares
Free my soul that we might dance
and that our dancing might be contagious.
von HAFIZ, dem großen persischen Dichter (1315-1390)
