In Search of the Good Life? Then, everything is sacred

The best way to save the planet, our Mother Earth, to make our lives better, and to build a better world, a world of peace with justice, is to heed the call of the Persian sage, poet, and philosopher of love, Hafez, who in his timeless, inspiring and healing words has said : 'Now Is The Time To Know That All That You Do Is Sacred.'

Now is the time to know
That all that you do is sacred.

Now is the time to understand
That all your ideas of right and wrong
Were just a child’s training wheels
To be laid aside
When you can finally live
With veracity
And love.

…Now is the time for the world to know
That every thought and action is sacred.

This is the time
For you to deeply compute the impossibility
That there is anything
But Grace.

Now is the season to know
That everything you do
Is sacred.-Hafez, the Persian poet and Philosopher of Love
