(He dwells) in inaccessible light….
I Timothy 6:16
On the contemplative walk, we strive to let go of our spiritual anchors in order to let God act with complete freedom. The more one lets go the stronger the presence of the Spirit becomes. The unapproachable light is able to guide us, and we begin to hear The Word.
Trying to come through that deep dark space,
Where if you let your heart open,
it might break into a million pieces and
go on forever into nowhere.
But The Word,
went forward thousands of years ago,
shouting things that had never been
Clear, sharp, unvarnished language,
that would speak of things never
Hurling through space,
screaming life, love, compassion.
The Word found a voice in that
It would flourish right there
in his heart.
That Word keeps shouting and moaning,
waiting to be heard by us.
The Word does not want to be made into rules.
Nor to be interpreted in any other language but
love and compassion.
The Word that came to earth
thousands of years ago,
wants to be heard in each of our hearts.
The Word has a very simple message:
“Love God” “Love People”
