Living in LOVE beyond Beliefs

The void is where God is. Empty places, empty moments are not really empty; they're pregnant. God is the potential fullness gushing out of every empty space, the ever-present possibility of a magic moment or miraculous thought. Off the blank page jumps a cosmic summons. Out of the silence came the opening chords of Beethoven's Fifth.

Let your Prayer
take wings and fly,
cling not to its
unspoken intentions

For the finite mind
can not conceive
the plans of Wisdom
for Her Creation

A prayer, spoken or unspoken,
is only a single thread
of a universal design
eternally in the Mind of God

A myriad petitions
is only a gentle whisper
of the ineffable Word
pouring out into all the Creation

So, frame your words
in voice or silence,
but let them pass on
from you freely

Do not seek to contain
the Eternal longing
within your own
limited vision

Noble aspirations
are refractions of the Light
shining through you,
illumining all beings on their way Home

*Lotus of the Heart is a Work of Arem Nahariim-Samadhi ~ a Hospice Chaplain, interspiritual author, writer, poet, and bicyclist. He is someone in love with Life and inviting others to that same ecstasy of Love ~ and, by the way, herein is nothing he claims as his own.
