Though, in fact,
They are already
Safely there!

Into you, my God.

Lord,
During meditation
I experience a conflict

Between fearing you –
So longing to turn back,

And loving you –
So longing to go on,

Until I dare
To lose my self,

In unity
With you.

Time out

There is one Lord […] who is over all and in all and living through all (Ephesians 4:5-6; NLT).

You are the temple of the living God (Luke 17:21; NKJV).

Meditation offers us time out
From the uniquely human illusion
That we are separate
From all living things,
Including God.
