Not Yet One / This Week: Adventure in Arkansas

sun 4

Perhaps your Life has just begun, and you are not yet one.

Forged
in the Furnace
of God’s Abundant Love,
brought to Life
with His Loving Breath,
blended
with water
and the metal of clay,
we were created
for this resplendent day.

The Furnace of God’s Abundant Love

And God said,
“I AM THAT I AM”
in five words
that mirror
what we call Life.
– Exodus 3:13-14

My Dear Friends,
the waters
of which we are
so Beautifully made,
can merge with rivers
of tears
over the years.
And flowing together
in misunderstood harmony
become one.
Coursing through Life,
Destiny’s Child
may awash upon the shore,
and be dashed upon rocks
of awareness,
that we may have never,
ever
truly Loved before.

You do not see the world as it is.

If tears that are within
flow seemingly without end,
know that birth
is not without pain,
that we never recognize joy,
until we look deeply into
the eyes of sorrow.
For they go hand in hand,
one today,
the other surely tomorrow.

“You do not see
the world as it is.
You see it
as you are.”

– Anais Nin

If in this
you were mindfully unaware,
perhaps your Life
has just begun,
and today
is your birthday,
and you are not yet
one.

Goodnight.

Your joy is your sorrow unmasked.
And the selfsame well
from which your laughter rises
was oftentimes filled with your tears.
And how else can it be?
The deeper that sorrow carves into your being,
the more joy you can contain.
– Kahlil Gibran

Waters of which we are so Beautifully made.

“Scientists have discovered
the mirror of their own minds
inside the atom,
where the existence and the behavior of the particles
depend on
the intent of the scientist.”

– Michael Brown
