Society rushes forward and yet as a people we move backwards. Every ego impulse is satiated and yet, as people we are no closer to being happier. We have a myriad of ways to communicate but despite or maybe because of social media, emails and 24 hour access to the world, we still can’t talk and form real human connections. Divorces, depression and suicides are at record highs, unjust wars are fought in our names, people are radicalised and society lurches from one disaster to the next. There is always the desire to be bigger, better, faster and stronger, always another gadget to buy, another experience to be had and as we spin faster and faster on the merry go round that is our life, our tenuous grip loosening with each whirl, we hope maybe just maybe the next experience may set us free. Free from the maddening pace of life and we will be able to sit as we did when we were children. Sit and stare and finally be free.
I no longer understand your existence.
You wish to build castles on quicksand.
You believe this illusion to be real.
I can no longer accept this.
I deal only in reality now.
With what words could I describe my love for you.
For without you I am lost.
Destined to forever wander.
Alone and destitute.
In your court I did wrong
And cast out was I .
Yet I see what I have done now.
And bow in forgiveness at every turn I do.
For where is it you are not.
Let me return
A lover beseeches his beloved
Let me come home now.
Truth hides out in the one way place you won't dare to look. Right where you are. Right here and right now. You brave enough to take a look or will you just delude yourself with your so called worship, your so called knowledge. Come turn inwards and see and behold that divine glory that is already is you. The invitation is always here for your Lord is merciful. Accept it and see the paradox resolved . That while travelling home you already are home.
The ecstatics danced around the fire.
Dead to themselves yet alive to their beloved.
They danced and they sang
Then when it was time
Each silently died
Died to falsehood
But alive to life
So life now danced with itself
