Oops, I am sorry I stepped so carelessly through the grass.
I hope I did not hurt you, this life beneath my feet.
It is so small, I am afraid to go forward.
It is important,
Just as important as I am.
Are we all part of the same?
And when we shed this body,
Do we all become “One”? Or do we stay a lonely spark?
Please Earth, let me feel your softness
And the morning dew on my naked feet.
Let me listen to your stillness,
Let me hear your secret sounds.
Let me feel your arms.
Let me feel one with you
And this precious stone and this tree.
Just allow me to put my ear to you,
Let me feel your pulse.
Let me feel the love that connects us all,
That which allows me to be part of the “One”,
The “One” for eternity.
So, please help me to step forward, carefully.
I like to share the following from my spiritual calender by Albert Schweitzer:
By having reverence for life, we enter into a spiritual relation with the world…By practicing reverence for life we become good, deep, and alive.
(Isaiah 40:8) The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of God will stand forever.
(Revelation 19: 6-10)
And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying,”Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns! Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.” And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
Then he said to me, “ Write: Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!” And he said to me, “These are the true sayings of God.” And I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me,”See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”
