poem: prepare to be interrupted by God today
take a break from the 10,000,000 things that distract us
see the Universal Cosmic Christ by whatever name in the stranger, other, oppressed
especially those making us the most uncomfortable in our privilege
allow the truth, beauty, and goodness that surround us to act in mercy, radical grace, and radical love
turn so that hearts are opened minds transformed and spirits lifted up
and so this shall be the new way that God is always with us all in the mutuality of giving and receiving

Spring’s greening peaks now outside my rainy window pane verily verdant vistas appear
Spring’s greening energy: sunlight, water, air chemically photosynthesizing
Spring’s greening leaves, sap running and sugar fueling powering the trees of Green Earth Home
Spring’s greening of these oldest living organisms bonding us together on our Way

Up early as always, writing and working on numerous new projects, I feel the need to move and clear my head which has become cluttered of late.
So out the door for a ramble around the house and property. Today I notice our first iris have bloomed, and the garden needs an overdue weeding like my mind!
Yes, I am feeling very creative and productive these days, and I feel I need to better channel this energy and become more focused. At 73, I am working as much as I ever have in my life with what matters most to my heart, soul, and spirit.
I just need to re-center back within my Self and follow the natural rhythm of life’s paradoxical tensions. Stop grasping and holding on too long, instead flowing from our center, engaging and withdrawing, remembering it is about the journey and not the destination.
