The Promise, the Manna, the Bread

September 23, 2016

Scrolled Art

Once, there were thoughts of being filled – before finding.
One side made every attempt to keep the earthly forever blinding.

Many drinks were sought in such a place – before knowing.
Then, upon tried chapters, the Spirit poured – like a river flowing.

“Would you give up?” – (finally) as a question.
Years followed – each passing with many a lifting lesson.

“These are the greatest gifts” –
exclaimed as they were bestowed.
“What more could be given” –
(in return) for these triumphs and throes?

This is the Promise (which always mends).
This is the Manna (which eternally sends).
This is the Bread (which never ends).

“Amen”: New Beginnings

September 9, 2016

Our Father, who art in heaven,
Hallowed by thy Name –
The King of kings, Lord of lords,
Thy Name the same.

My Leader, my Brother,
My Savior, my Friend –
Guide and carry me,
Until that beginning as an end.

Our Father, The Creator,
The Holy, The One –
Lift me to that time
When eternity has only begun.

Hallowed be Thy Names,
Thy Swords to come;
Hallowed are The Words
Which shall never be undone

Gotta Serve Somebody +

October 7, 2015

You may be a preacher with your spiritual pride
You may be a city councilman taking bribes on the side
You may be working in a barbershop, you may know how to cut hair
You may be somebody’s mistress, may be somebody’s heir.

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody, yes
You’re gonna have to serve somebody,
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody.

Might like to wear cotton, might like to wear silk
Might like to drink whiskey, might like to drink milk
You might like to eat caviar, you might like to eat bread
You may be sleeping on the floor, sleeping in a king-sized bed.

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody, yes indeed
You’re gonna have to serve somebody,
It may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody.

Secret World: Blood of Eden

Blood of Eden

I saw the signs of my undoing
They had been there from the start
And the darkness still has work to do
The knotted chord’s untying
They’re heated and they’re holy
Oh they’re sitting there on high
So secure with everything they’re buying

[Chorus:]
In the blood of Eden
Lie the woman and the man
With the man in the woman
And the woman in the man
In the blood of Eden
Lie the woman and the man
We wanted the union
Oh the union of the woman
The woman and the man

I can hear the distant thunder
Of a million unheard souls
Of a million unheard souls
Watch each one reach for creature comfort
For the filling of their holes

In the blood of Eden
Lie the woman and the man
With the man in the woman
And the woman in the man

Questions.  Answers.  Seek.

We are all children of God.  As was written, Seek, that we may be called, that we may become one (with Them) as sons and daughters – as + Jesus Christ (Our Savior) taught.

Inspiration[s].  Focus[es].  Heart[s].

Only By.
Only For.  And, Only Of:
One Mind – One Body – One Spirit

Amen


Re: The Family of Jesus

July 7, 2015

The family that Jesus knows he belongs to and belongs to forever—and the family he wants everyone else to belong to—is the family of the lovers of God; it is this family that must spread all over the earth, and spread its warmth and charity and passionate concern for just conditions into every corner of human society if human life is to become divine.

With a keyed focus on the heart (and sharing) of God’s Love, imagine, possibly as a (new) beginning, being deeply loved by your earthly father and how it felt or feels to return/share in that love. Then, imagine the heavenly Father loving you ten times more (so to speak) – with a resulting embrace and envelopment that nothing on earth could take away. Imagine Jesus Christ giving us a message, in these days:
I would do it again, if necessary – because I Love you all so much.” After being overwhelmed with meaning (and emotion), would you then seek (ceaselessly)? : “How much love as this could there possibly be?” That kind of focus – on His family, and how much they want us to know we are welcomed within, if we would only open our arms (and accept Their hands), may awaken, again, in such depth that matters here are overcome (to such a spiritual extent) – where nothing can erase it.
