May the wind
blow away all my footsteps.
~from a bushman prayer
“There are many things
I’m good at,” she says, “and I’m
waiting for Spirit to show me where to put my gifts and
talents.” As I see her lengthy list of possible projects
for 2009, I feel a great weight of a mountain burying her,
holding her immobile. I recall the oft-quoted words of Rumi:
“Love is always the answer. Now, what was the question?”
The JOY of a spiritual
peacemaker lies in the knowing that CERTAINTY occurs only
in the simplicity of the moment-to-moment willingness to
love what is, fully, completely, unconditionally: AGAPE,
of course! And this kind of lovingness knows no limits and
does not need to seek anything upon which to focus itself.
AGAPE continuously gives
with a GENEROSITY that assures ABUNDANCE.
AGAPE dissolves the mountains
of considerations like water or sometimes burns them away
like fire, sometimes blows them away like wind.
With ego’s considerations
gone, there is nothing left but the JOY of AGAPE, the JOY
of CLARITY and UNDERSTANDING. There is nothing left to serve
but this beautiful love. With all considerations gone, there
simply is the knowing of what one is to be and do.
Make no mistake, dear ones,
AGAPE is the Master and you are AGAPE!
