The Place Where You Are Now
This place where you are right now
God circled on a map for you.
Wherever your eyes and arms and heart can move
Against the earth and the sky,
The Beloved has bowed there—
Our Beloved has bowed there knowing
You were coming.
I could tell you a priceless secret about
Your real worth, dear pilgrim,
But any unkindness to yourself,
Any confusion about others,
Will keep one
From accepting the grace, the love,
The sublime freedom
Divine knowledge always offers to you.
Never mind, Hafiz, about
The great requirements this path demands
Of the wayfarers,
For your soul is too full of wine tonight
To withhold the wondrous Truth from this world.
But because I am so clever and generous,
I have already clearly woven a resplendent lock
Of his tresses
As a remarkable truth and gift
In this poem for you.
The mirror of life that occurs is…
the degree to which I have love and acceptance of who I am, with all of my humanity, with all of my imperfections…
that is the precursor to then experiencing that with everybody else￼.
– Peter Crone
Most human beings don’t know what it means to just truly be held and loved for exactly who they are.
If anyone is struggling, that is the greatest gift we can give somebody.
To love them exactly the way they are, for who they are, at this moment in time.
– Peter Crone
