Lighthouse Bird

I am ok and will continue to be ok. I am not the center of the universe. Reality is peopled and diverse. But I am center of a circle of acts of beauty and cosmic awareness, and consequence.

How blessed I am to be one of the articulate; neither oppressed or intimidated into silence.  I am gifted with a voice.

light0001You are ok and you will continue to be ok. You too are not center of the universe. Reality is peopled and diverse. But you are the center of a circle of acts of beauty and cosmic awareness, and consequence.

How do our circles interconnect?

For us, we who have journeyed the paths of healing, love has already engraved its calligraphy inside our souls: we know what is to be done.  We foot the slope to the valley below.  Our eyes follow the valley water.

The Dove of Now is a lighthouse bird

Look out toward everyone. Pay attention here please. Listen. Care is part of our emergency. That is as sure as indifference fuels destruction.
:
Earth is in torment, confusion and rage! Brewing to category 5: to intemperate rage. To critical mass. This torment of Earth is aligned with the multiples of our angst.  Our anguish is crucifixion in the body of God. And you are startled, wondering, “What and where, in the name of the 21st century, is the body of God?”

Today is the day. Another day and yet the day. Right now is the hour. Another hour and yet the hour. What are we doing? Why are we here?

How do our circles interconnect?

Time if not something like inexorable fate has brought us together.  We persist
acting as if strangers. Only we are not.  Not strangers after all. We shallow lies; are terrifyingly forgetful. Life is betrayed.

Why are we like this? Why all like this?  And how long? I wouldn’t hold my breath, holding out for an answer.  Anymore than you should stop breathing about the perplexity of the body of God.

Now listen: I am determined to tell you civilization’s secret, the most denied, the one that survives and somehow remains most holy.  The haunting remains of holy: deathless images.

The Dove of Now is a lighthouse bird.

Somewhere on this troubled planet, somehow, someone passionate, I am compelled to tell you, found a spade and dug up a cask of buried scripture.  And shook out from that dust of time and this storm of history—look—a miracle of wings!
