Hide and Seek...
- Hi Polly and all,
Just popped in to share a poem I received from another group. Hope
everyone is having a joyous holiday season!
In Light, Love and Laughter,
Hide and Seek
She was Goddess
I was God...
Together We had soared Above the trees
Together We had dived Into the depths
And together burrowed Into The Earth Her Body,
In Our adventure.
We had witnessed the dawn of Creation
We looked upon the Mystery
And found this precious instant This moment Now
The middle and
The end of things.
And We knew the Source of it all.
Timeless and Immortal.
Let Us play a game We said.
It is "hide and seek"
I will hide everywhere!
You must find Me,
For the game Can only end
When I am found And when I Find You.
You Whom I Love As My Very Self.
And a world arose...
Filled it was with forms and forces
Full of drama,
Sometimes We got sloppy And descended Into melodrama?
And in this WE Played Our game.
Of "Hide and Seek."
Easy it was to know some of the places She hid,
She hid in every woman's body
Inside of every girl child
The flowers in the field
The depths of the Earth, And of the seas,
And in the shadows Of the forests,
And in the Pastures of Plenty,
And in the Garden...
She hid HerSelf.
I hid in the bodies and in the minds
Of every man-child
Born of woman.
Mine was every quest
Each search for gold And other treasures,
For jewels and For adventure.
Conquest and dominion
Ever Competition always With my very Self.
In war, and in the end of wars, There I hid.
In grandeur and degradation, Nobility and humiliation,
There went I.
I remembered Her.
It was always She I sought.
And I had thought there was "something else"
In all Creation That could take Her place.
In wealth, In power, In glory and in fame.
All these Were but substitutes
For this, my Lady.
So my quest turned from outward to inside,
For We had made the world
For the dance of Our Play
The game of Our Search
The Play of Our Dance
Eternal it seemed,
For The Holy Grail.
For that which cannot be found In all the world's
Cannot lie in self-glorification,
But can only be found
Where it always Was...
And In This very Heart
In This very Mind
Found I My Beloved
And here too She found Me.
For, in the beginning...
Which is Now,
We were not really Two.
We could not really be apart
For we were the same:
Being One Being,
Being One, Being, Being One Being
Playing a Game Of Hide and Seek.
Namasté--Blesséd Be, and Peace to all Beings!...
