Witness

awareness

Search outside

this life

through the fog of your consciousness

to capture the objectivity

of each new day

and all the gifts taken for granted.

Witness the layers

of solitude and emptiness,

love and compassion,

faith and belief

in each particle of mankind.

In the purest of hearts lies truth

that can be felt

but not touched,

sensed but by no means held,

understood but never mastered.

There, in your solitude

allow Spirit to move you,

opening wide to vulnerability –

exposing to our infinite connection

in this web of humanness

we refer to as humanity

by letting the I AM become

the part of oneness…

you,

me,

and all.

You, the Creator

reflectionThere is nothing wrong with admitting
that at times

this is much to endure
and you must fall on your knees

to let it out,

in a sigh or a cry

because being alone is part of our existence.

 

All the materialism,

collection of people,

obsessions and addictions

cannot replace

or mend

that space you have

opened to Spirit –

the awed-nature awareness

that says, “Hello, look at me,”

 when you feel deserted or forsaken.

 

Allow it. Surrender.

You are not alone. 

This journey is existential in nature

and its path is lighted by sacredness. 


Sometimes the ache is profound and it comes
deep from Greatness
while you say, “Let it go. Make it go away.”

Beg, plead and negotiate.
It does no justice to that space,

to the ache from beyond.
The heart knows nothing of negotiations;
it is driven by vastness and endless forces.

Tell me what drives this alienation to such intensity.
Let me hold you and help you in your need.
You don’t need to be alone–
you are not alone.

I may be able to hold your hand,

make you smile,

and when I leave

the emptiness will visit again

until you don’t feel its desperate claws.

You will sit with it and love it

as you reach the beauty in yourself.

I cannot fix this.  You don’t need anyone

to try and mend the process of your rhythm.

This ache and withdrawal goes unnoticed by others
but it is there peaking,

poking, projecting and protruding
until it surfaces again and again.

Don’t question your faith.

Question what You need to learn from it.

Then again
don’t question a thing.
Let it subside on its own.
Be aware of any pain,

control,

the illusion of separation

and dive into the wisdom it creates.
Be thankful for it
because it means
that you are alive.

It means you are never alone.

It means…

you are the one…

the only…

creation.
