12 Quotes on Mystery
The "idea" that something needs to happen
in order for You
to be free
the bondage.~ Scott Kilobyby Rorayma Gavidia on Facebook
Sometimes, I Am Startled Out of Myself,
like this morning, when the wild geese came squawking,
flapping their rusty hinges, and something about their trek
across the sky made me think about my life, the places
of brokenness, the places of sorrow, the places where grief
has strung me out to dry. And then the geese come calling,
the leader falling back when tired, another taking her place.
Hope is borne on wings. Look at the trees. They turn to gold
for a brief while, then lose it all each November.
Through the cold months, they stand, take the worst
weather has to offer. And still, they put out shy green leaves
come April, come May. The geese glide over the cornfields,
land on the pond with its sedges and reeds.
You do not have to be wise. Even a goose knows how to find
shelter, where the corn still lies in the stubble and dried stalks.
All we do is pass through here, the best way we can.
They stitch up the sky, and it is whole again.

Belief brings me close to You
but only to the door.
It is only by disappearing into
that I will come in.~ Sanai
While reason is still tracking down the secret,
you end your quest on the open field of love.
~ SanaiNo tongue can tell Your secret
for the measure of the word obscures Your nature.
But the gift of the ear
is that it hears
what the tongue cannot tell.~ Sanaiby Belle Heywood on Facebook
