Life is born out of the divine shrapnel of the big bang. We are energy that simply changes form. Perhaps in our time of grieving, when darkness seems to envelop us, we can remember this one thing:
The physical world is mortal and immortal;
In time, everyone and everything passes through the lower energies of matter and then leaves;
Changing into a different vibration of energy, without form and without a physical avatar.
That darkness we feel sometimes is also part of divinity.
It reminds us to hold this precious and temporary time when we embody physical matter tenderly;
and be thankful for those we have loved and lost;
and appreciate those we have now;
because too soon, this life will change form.
What Are You Waiting For?
by Jan Phillips
Intelligence permeates the universe
It makes our hearts pump, our fingernails grow.
Every cell knows what to do
because it is intelligence materialized.
In the circle of life,
the wave of knowing becomes the particle of being.
Energy slows down and becomes matter.
Like Einstein said: energy is simply matter
times the speed of light squared.
Energy never dies. It just keeps changing form.
A dewdrop becomes a cloud, becomes rain,
becomes the sea, becomes a cloud, becomes sleet
becomes the icy road.
The hydrogen atoms forged in the Big Bang
are in your eyelash, your cat’s fur,
your piano bench.
You are more than a child of the heavens and earth.
You are mortal and immortal,
finite and infinite,
human and divine.
Own up to it.
Inside you burns the flame of Creation Itself.
If you heard it once, you heard it a hundred times:
You are the light of the world.
You are the miracle you are waiting for.
Your body is a chalice holding Mind-at-Large.
What in the world are you waiting for?
