The gentle role model

Just as I am always for you, says the Lord
be always for yourself

How long it has taken you to believe the first!
How long it will take you to do the second!

Not to worry, my love
Infinity is infinite
I am always patient
how I love you

In the sea of storm

Praise, heavy anchor
dropping in the sea of storm

What will lead you

For at this moment, you know in your essence that you are not alone
the essence of you returns to the essence of me
returns to the essence of everywhere
returns to omnipresence
you are saturated with presence, dear one
return to truth
your anxiety will not lead you to truth;
your spirit will

The empty alleluia

The geese are gone
Ducks, too
The sky empties of sound
except the alleluia, which rings out

The blessing of turmoil

In deep turmoil
eyes locked on God

In ease
eyes wander

Radical stability

Blessings will come and go, says the Lord
radical stability does not depend on them

Tree wisdom

Yes, trees adore the sun
but their roots need darkness lest they wither within the hour;
not everything should be seen,
and what nourishes one part of you
untranslated and untransformed, can hurt another part of you
Stay alert

The patience for breaking open

I am for you, says the Lord
I know this is hard to believe
I am infinitely patient
Take your time
Every seed needs time to break open
before it can turn into a tree
