“Don’t look at me…

look at you. Until you find the divine within you will never see it in others. The divine is in us all.” But wait, I understand your skepticism. I too, have doubted and even mocked those who believe as I do now. This story is a part of my pilgrimage of self discovery. The requisiteContinue reading ““Don’t look at me…”

Refine to Purity

Mad desire for Desire and the Water of Life makes Love inflame A thousand thousand fires and furnaces every second. Rumi As my intention to serve G_d’s creatures and therefore Him grows.

Thank you, but I want this

Alas, here I am again, in anguish, insisting that I have things the way I would prefer. I even have the audacity to say this encounter has been blessed, that God approves of me choosing to seek divine Love from unreliable sources. I do believe in a blessed human love, though I wonder why I’mContinue reading “Thank you, but I want this”

Let’s get Ugly

You see I find it too easy to appreciate the obvious reasons to enjoy your company. You’re beautiful in appearance. You’re complimentary to my ego. All very soothing and delightful to experience.

The lamps are different, But the Light is the same. So many garish lamps in the dying brain’s lamp-show, Forget about them. Concentrate on the essence, concentrate on the Light. In lucid bliss, calmly smoking off its own holy fire, The Light streams towards you from all things, All people, all possible permutations of good,Continue reading “Gazing at the Light”

Today I was prompted by a new author I follow by his post A lonely thing- Quotes of the King The take away for me was that I have manifested “ghosts and monsters” in my own persona from my resistance to serious consideration of my own ineptitude in relation to my creator Yahweh. To say itContinue reading “Ineptitude”

An Apparition

A mirage of sorts, though it can’t be seen or even concretely described. I know it, feel it and can almost taste it. When I can capture it and possess it for my own, I will finally feel relieved of this wretched craving. Therein lies my affliction. Reliance on created things for solace. As soon asContinue reading “An Apparition”
