Don’t ignore yourself any longer, says the Lord –
Voice your wishes, your desires:
I am the Voice
so that you can remember yours

The case not to choose the mountain

You are an ant and your fears are a mountain
but I am the universe and even beyond –
a mountain is dust of the dust

Own yourself!

You’re trying too hard to please –
Be you! Be you in your entirety!
This is how you’re made, in all your facets:
Own your complexity!

It starts weak
and becomes strong
only when you work

Ownership

Righteous indignation has owned me
and I want to return my power to you, O Lord
so that no one and nothing else can claim me, be my master

Nothing has claimed you, says the Lord gently;
instead, you have claimed many others to be your God

The thickness of the Lord is upon us
when the lights go out
not a shadow to be seen
