To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.
William Blake’s magnificent lines from his larger poem, “Auguries of Innocence,” reminds me of the terse quality of Lao Tzu’s verses. If anyone seems to grasp in words the mystery of the universe, it is Blake. He clearly sees the World in a grain of sand. Inside the seemingly insignificant grain of sand, is a whole universe of atoms and their particles in a micro-dance, mimicking the vast cosmos itself. This relationship brings to life a vision of how Jesus’ The Kingdom of God is within you,” could possibly be true and also how strikingly true was the priestly writer of Genesis 1 in rendering God as saying that we are made in His image and likeness. This relational resemblance is not just true of humans but of the whole universe.
The relational interdependence of the universe is so evident to science that it has led to a completely new field of theology called Process Theology, or Process Relational Theology. Process theologies are relational ways of thinking about the dynamism of life and faith. Process-relational theologians integrate what they recognize as an interdependent universe in action with how we live and express our faith. Process theology sees everything as dynamically interconnected; everything matters; everything has an effect.
Blake’s vision of seeing a Heaven in a Wild Flower calls attention to how the universe sustains beauty for us to feel the joy of its sacred mission. Beauty supports us by resting our attention on Life’s healing modalities while enticing us to contemplate the mysteries and holiness of life.
How often do lack and limitation haunt us by being blind to the fact that the little we hold in our possession is our starting point to Infinity, to growth and to greater abundance. Someone may fire us from our job, or our beloved may walk out on us, leaving us to think our life is over. If only we can re-image that each of us contains a unlimited treasure trove of possibilities. Blake expressed this as Hold infinity in the palm of your hand; And Eternity in an hour.  He sees, as we can, that God is forever putting options before us and that the control is our own hands.
In the words, Eternity in an hour, we are urged to see that whatever time we have can be preciously lived as if we were already in eternity. Time is the invaluable doling out of eternity. Quantum science tells us that reality comes in droplets. That is, it comes into being and perishes almost immediately although our senses cannot detect this. Whether or not we can fathom this notion, we can grasp that time wasted cannot not be retrieved. Therefore, in this interdependent universe, we will do well to be mindful that we are related to the farthest galaxies as well as to every creature on this earth. Since this is true, it will let us feel at home in the world knowing we are living with our relatives in every possible way. It may allow us to appreciate Jesus’ saying in the Gnostic Gospel of Thomas, The kingdom of the Father is spread out upon the earth and men do not see it.
However, we can live in a way that grasps that Eternity has fallen into time. When we understand this, we will be as inspired as Blake was in writing these lines. Our inspiration can make us rise to greater heights in our lives than we may otherwise have suspected we could do.
In our interdependent universe we will all find our way much better if we are motivated by love.

The Blessing that is Imperfection

If you are a person who thinks you need to be perfect at whatever you do to experience satisfaction with your life, you may be in for an unnecessarily unhappy life. Work to be good, and when you are, work to be better. Satisfaction, like the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, is found there.

Ernest's Corner

The Law has done all it can automatically do for man. It has evolved him to a point of individuality and must now let him alone to discover the secrets of life for himself. Man is potentially perfect but free-will and self-choice cause him to appear imperfect. In reality all he can destroy is some par­ticular embodiment of himself. The Divine Spark is always intact in potential man.

But there are a number of free, confidential resources to turn to for help. Here are a few:
—Steinberg Institute website, links to mental health resources and care throughout California,
—Institute on Aging’s 24/7 Friendship Line (especially for people who have disabilities or are over 60), 1-800-971-0016 or call 415-750-4138 to volunteer.
