Who am I to tell you how to seek and find the all-confounding,
all-demanding, all-providing and glorious God
that is Love?
Who am I to offer guidance or reassurance that might help you stumble blindly into it,
as I have,
over the self-inflicted wreckage of
fantasy, frustration, false images, failures, hidden frailties and forlorn hope?
Who am I to stick my head above the parapet and to scream, until I´m hoarse?
- amid a roar of differing, strong opinions -
“Keep going. Keep searching.
Keep trusting in that doubt-filled longing deep within you that
What difference will one, timid, easily-distracted, easily-discouraged,
lone and fallible human voice make?
We´ll never know.
That´s the beginning and the end of it. The Alpha and the Omega.
We´ll never know.
I do know that listening to the drum-beat of my heart and following its guiding rhythm
has been my Way and my only Way,
and that it´s cut a swathe through me and the lives of others in its drive to find this Truth.
That it´s swept ´neediness´ and ´ego´ and ´wish-to-please-others´
and ´desire-for-applause´ directly into my line-of-sight
and lead me deeper and deeper
into this Labyrinth of Life,
in which we´re all held.
It´s taught me,
time and time again,
that no-one is only what they choose to show others
or what they appear to be,
on the surface.
It´s shown me, when I´ve looked…and looked again,
with presence of compassion and absence of defence,
a glimmer of my glorious but frightened,
lonely and defended self,
within each and all.
And in that glimmer of recognition, that flash of mirrored light,
I´ve felt and recognised, just fleetingly, the smiling presence of God.
Disarming, energizing, all-powerful,
a sacred gentleness,
filling a timeless moment of eternity,
with the infinite force of Life
