Any thought that you are better or less breaks your connection with Spirit. Daniel Ladinsky (pictured right), translates Persian poet Hafiz. 

Ladinsky was born and raised in the Midwest. For six years he made his home in a spiritual community in western India, where he worked in a rural clinic free to the poor, and lived with the intimate disciples and family of Meher Baba. Ladinsky has published three volumes of Hafiz’ poetry in translation: "The Gift," "The Subject Tonight Is Love," and "I Heard God Laughing." His new book is an anthology titled "Love Poems from God."
