Becoming more human from Hafiz

Post by Guest on July 9th 2013, 9:17 am

Once a man came to me and spoke for hours about

"His great visions of God" he felt he was having.


He asked me for confirmation, saying,

"Are these wondrous dreams true?"


I replied, "How many goats do you have?"


He looked surprised and said,

"I am speaking of sublime visions

And you ask

About goats!"


And I spoke again saying,

"Yes, brother - how many do you have?"


"Well, Hafiz, I have sixty-two."


"And how many wives?"

Again he looked surprised, then said,

"Four."


"How many rose bushes in your garden,

How many children,

Are your parents still alive,

Do you feed the birds in winter?"


And to all he answered.


Then I said,

"You asked me if I thought your visions were true,

I would say that they were if they make you become

More human,


More kind to every creature and plant

That you know."

Tell us about yourself : Iím a widow; I lost my spouse April 16, 1999 to a broken heart and Cancer. He was a Native American. I have lived on his Reservation in California for 37 years. We were married 23 years. We had two children, lost one to a drunk driver in 97 before my spouse died. I started my spiritual journey when son passed; but woke up to spirituality abruptly June 2009 when I had an event reading by James Van Praagh and he brought through eight deceased relatives. I would love to be a medium in the future, and share that spiritual connection with those who have lost. I take photos of spirits in clouds. One of my favorite spirit photographs at night is an apparition of a Native American Male.
