The great Persian mystic Hafiz once wrote, “I am a hole in a flute that the Christ’s breath moves through”.  It is a simple line of poetry but beautiful and, with a closer look, there is much to be derived from it.

To be a hole in a flute is to be the part of the instrument that is not there.  That is not to say it does not exist; the hole indeed exists, and without it, we would not have a flute, not a functional one anyway.  But what is the hole?  It is an empty space, a void, the absence of the material of the flute.  It is emptiness.  Hafiz’s words could be restates as I am the empty space through which Divinity moves.  If we wish to allow Spirit to move and work through us then we must not be full of obstacles that would block Divine flow.


Sometimes we complicate things, over-thinking, analyzing, trying to rationalize our spirituality.  There are times for questions and thoughts, but a time also exists for suspending thoughts, purging the mind, heart, and soul.  When we set aside mind chatter, fears, worries, separation, duality, and all other burdens that clog our spirit, we open and empty ourselves to the Divine.  We become the hole in the flute through which God’s breath can move effortlessly.  If you are a healer, you allow healing to flow through you.  If you are a musician, the music will move.  For an artist, the masterpiece will be great.  The teacher’s message will arise effortlessly and be easily received.  No matter the form your song takes, it will be most beautiful when you are empty and open to its creation.


Challenge yourself to let go, to be empty and allow Spirit to breathe creation through you.
