Mayan apocalypse. The end of the world. Solstice. 2012. 2013. I came upon the words of Rilke and found the answer to the question: Who will I be in 2013? If you are also searching…..maybe this is who you will be too.
“Your first word of all was light, and time began.
Then for a long time you were silent.
Your second word was man and fear began,
Which grips us still.
I don’t want your third word…”
I’ve heard the third word and it is love
Drawing us out of fear and Restoring us to the light
Reminding us to feel…and to know… and to be…
With you, within ourselves, with each other and with all that is.
Love, the healing balm, the great connector
Tearing down the walls of separation
Now greeting each other kindly, extending our hand in welcome
Encircling our arms in listening acceptance.
Who are you?
What are your passions?
What gives you joy and brings you to your knees?
In love…we are not so different from one another
Simply the infinite and limitless reflections of God at play.
Your third word is love and it has been spoken a million times in a million heartbeats.
Do we have the courage to hear it?
