Sabbathical Prayer

Prayer is

At its simplest:

Finding the

Darkness, the

Silence or the

Solitude

To BE this moment,

Now

Stranger

Stranger to myself, like

Death and preoccupation with the

Health of the soul which

I trust will live forever.

PS I trust because I believe

I believe because

NOthing lasts forever

Except

YOU

Sabbatical with YOU

Well, now

IT makes sense,

IT teaches me to reMEMBER:

Firstly, to be alone and

Secondly, how to be alone.

HOW?

By getting LOST,

By getting lost in YOU.

Not just any old you

But a NEW YOU

A YOU that is always NEW

Benedictine

Blessed

Wholly

Happy

True

As true as this moment

As this moment,

As this moment with YOU

As well as the little one

Which I just knew

And the next?

The little one which WE always knew;

And the difference?

ALONE

SABBAT-h-ical

SEVEN?

NO!

HE rested.

Sabbath means “He rested”

Rested means the past,

The past creation ended

Ended;

Had an END

SO?

So now;

NOW

NOW

NOW

IT creation WILL only be found

IT creation CAN only be found

IT creation IS only found In YOU.

If that ain’t death?

Nothing is.

That is,

IT creation being;

BEING lost to YOU

If that ain’t life?

YOU is not Eternally true.

Yes, THIS moment is both

Both death and life

IT is resignation TO

IT is creative new IN

YOU

OR

IT is nothing therein;

Therein LIES

The paradoxical nature of our lives

As seen through the lens of our

Eden loss.

Ah, but NOT a loss

A gain;

“felix culpa”

Happy fault

Again and a gain

Because

Because where would we be

Without that drama?

The drama that leads each little one

Back Back Back

Back to the heaven of ALL.

The heaven of All

Before the Fall

Saints be singing

Not clinging.

Yes, we cling to IT

Thereby rendering IT

UN creative and

We name IT alive

Instead of

New creative YOU

Alive

Once again,

Again and a gain

The value of

The SabbatHical prayer

The REST required

To remember the difference

The difference between IT and YOU.

Discernment.

There is more in there.

Let us keep in touch

LOOK

Your face, as Other,

must and will always be Forever,

in mother or in brother or in some thing

to smother the distraction

that takes from us the Lover we can be.

Don’t you see?

Eternity is just the reflection of who You are to me.

Ex-CENTRIC

I can never forget You.

You are a part of me.

Oh, why are You a part of me?

But, it is okay! You come and You go;

nothing permanent to interfere with my Love,

my new Love

Alone

without You,

Alone without You.

Oh, why must there always be

an Alone without You?
