I am an idiot walking through a Divine world.
How is it that the world around me
has suddenly become so beautiful?
So full of Soul and Life?
I don’t know.
I never knew.
The grace of the Gods makes my heart break.
Did I know that They were tinkering away
for my vitality,
years before I even asked or knew what I wanted?
Suddenly, the magnitude of all Their small graces
hits me full on
like a train of blooming flowers softly denting me.
They knew without me knowing.
They were there for me years before I asked.
The magnitude of the World’s grace is overwhelming.
The realization burns in my heart like bittersweet honey.
I cry in joy and I weep, helpless, gasping for air.
What They’ve orchestrated is so custom-made, it’s ridiculous!
You think that pain is your domain alone
And there you are so alone
What you do not know
Is that pain,
bonebreaking, crushing pain,
is a part of being human.
No one can tell where someone has been
on this road just by looking at them or
listening to the sound of their voice.
Ask, Listen, Learn!
Outward appearances conceal whole worlds
in front of your eyes.
You look at all the glit and glitter
And think it denies reality–
But what you do not know, oh Traveler, is that
in the suffering
lies the most beautiful gem of all!
There the World itself
reveals its true and simple nature:
yourself meets Yourself,
The mind realizes its own game,
And suddenly you realize
you were never alone,
never, never, never,
Nicked bone deep on the edge of Life
In the fire, finding the wisdom of God
Tasting the sharp sweetness of the sting of Life
The secret to His child-like hide-and-seek game
Finding God in Yourself
Seeing God in the World
Trusting in Yourself
Falling back into the Support of the Universe
