Many forms; still ONE

I am sitting here in this quiet sanctuary with a chant softly playing in the background.  I sigh with deep gratitude for this space, for this moment in which to lay my grief. There are no words, although many have been shouted out across the  divide we have made. There is nothing to be said, but we cannot stop speaking. Here, another act of violence and we react with more anger, attack and blame. We cannot hear each other for the volume of violent rhetoric.

And then, in this quiet, I sense a whisper.

Something so subtle. Something so pure.

So, I sit a moment and listen.

I listen to the Quiet.

I sit until my mind becomes still.

And this is when I feel the Presence; always with me, always with each of us.

The Presence of Peace.  

“I come in many forms and in many languages and ideologies,” It says, “but I am One.”

I sit with this as if to allow a compress of compassion to comfort my broken heart.

I hear again, “I come in many forms and in many languages and ideologies, but I am One.”

(Silence)

Then, “I am with you always, even unto the end of time.”

Deeper sigh.

(Silence)

Be this Presence in the world for those who have forgotten and who wrestle in this terrible sleep of fear and death. Be this Presence of Peace in this moment.

In this Holy Instant, may you breathe again and be born again in Love, Light, Compassion and Wisdom and may you hold the world in your most precious heart, especially in a small town in Texas where it appears that something greater than Love could destroy this Word.

I COME IN MANY FORMS AND IN MANY LANGUAGES AND IDEOLOGIES, BUT I AM ONE AND I AM ONE WITH YOU ALWAYS, AND WITH ALL BEINGS, WITHOUT EXCEPTION.

WE ARE ONE.

in love, peace and light, I AM.
