Do not stay trapped in the letter
For the Spirit is much better.
“Did it happen?” will not do,
But “Is it real?” or “Is it true?”
These kinds of questions speak to meaning,
Whether we are wisdom gleaning.
Declaring something is a fact,
There’s not much one can add to that.
Yet if it is of Truth we speak,
We join the mystic on his peak
To see the world with magic eyes,
In every moment a surprise.
The past holds many wonders, true,
But Spirit longs to speak to you.
Here and now, the everyday,
If handled in another way,
Can fast become miraculous
If we let Christ enlighten us.
