Be opened, ears
that I may hear
what the Beloved is whispering to me.
Be opened, lips
that I may sing
of the grace I behold.
Be opened, heart,
to the mystery that unfolds,
the love that abounds.
Be opened, friend,
to me, and who I am,
and who you may be.
Be opened. mind,
to all that exceeds
what you already know.
Be opened, soul,
to this world
and its grace.
Be opened, self,
to be healed,
to be changed.
Be opened, heavens,
to receive us,
to commune here with us.
Let this be today’s prayer:
I walk in clouds of messy grace
they follow me wherever I go
I traverse the worlds of the dark and the light
allowing both to be where I belong
I jump in puddles of deep infinity splashing stardust onto my feet of clay
I sail my ship into the driest desert full sails catching the hot winds of new understanding
I climb the highest mountains
to see all the beauty found above, below and within me
I lie in the green grass of myself as respect for the very stuff that I am made of
I drop for 3 hrs 45 minutes into the center of the earth
to allow my stubbornness to burn away
I search the seas at midnight to find one open heart like mine
I surrender all I have ever known for sure
to open my heart to your magic
You take me to places I’ve never known before
beyond the beyond and back again
We are the night ocean –
mysterious life. sparkling light-forms
We are the stable earth –
wings of birds. creepy creeping things
We are the rain forest –
rarest orchid. poison-est frog.
We are the arid desert –
stickiest cacti. smallest grain of sand.
We are the heavens –
guarded by angels. home of God.
We are the word –
spoken. written. thought.
We are the soul of the soul –
together we are the universe. the very center of everything. the beginning and the end.
I am you –
child. sibling. parent. friend. love.
as you are me –
loving. lover. loved. beloved. love.
we are possibles and i’m-possibles –
be-ings. unlimited. infinite. I am’s.
