It is a climbing to and a falling in
It is a pushing into and being pulled
It is a swimming into and a wading within
It is a running into and a resting in
It is a grabbing hold of and a letting go
It is a closing up and an opening to

This is life with You, Undefinable Presence
"God" won't do, as it bears many worn images
"Mystery" won't work because it suggests a never-finding
So I will call you Love and I will call you Life, because You are gentle and ever-present, and you have my best interests at heart.

This Friday Feeling

I like this fatigued feeling, this feeling that says go back to bed, the feeling that is aided by the fact that I haven't been able to have a shower today because the hot water is off. It is the feeling that says "You are enough. You don't have to change. In fact, stop changing. Just become more you." It is a feeling aided by another gulp of the coffee I am drinking, and by the overcast sky that is visible through the big picture window here at the café. It is the feeling that says "You don't have to believe anything or interpret anything in this moment. In this moment you don't have to be anything, you can just be." Because nothing is wrong here, right now.
