The simple moments,
Are the holiest.
Sometimes you’ll feel disconnected.
Been too long since you’ve detected
Any hint of sacred touch.
I wouldn’t let it bug you much.
Instead of dwelling on the lack,
Try to cut yourself some slack.
We live in times not suited to
Fostering Divine in you.
Simplify the way you live,
And focus on what you can give.
Soon it will be brought to bear
That sacredness is everywhere.
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.
Pray the Rosary,
Cultivate the Tao within,
Do what leads you home.
It’s scary to be
Solitary in seeking.
Just embrace that fear.
