I Believe in LOVE.
As the wind ignites the chimes on our blue barn I ponder what it means to know creation, the driving force behind all things: Love, Universal consciousness, The Creator, Great Spirit, Atum….GOD….There I said it, the G word. I used to be so triggered by that word; it has taken me a long time to realize that words are only signposts, descriptions for the sake of communication.
I am not religious and was not brought up that way but still I have been completely triggered by that word. I am not ‘one of those people’ I would think to myself. Until I personally had my own experiences with different beautiful religious communities, I used to be so judgmental to all religion, making the vast sweep that they are all the same. I would see myself as almost arrogantly ‘spiritual’ and as I have gone down many roads on this ‘spiritual quest’ you might call it, I have always been a seeker of TRUTH. The only way I know truth is what resonates deep in my heart and soul. There are no words for it, just a knowing.
As Albert Einstein has so eloquently expressed, ‘The most beautiful and profound emotion we can experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is at the root of all true science. That deeply emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, is my idea of God.’ Even Einstein as a scientist is acknowledging a presence of a superior reasoning power in an incomprehensible universe.
It has nothing to do with religion. This is the place that I reside, in the mystical magical place of the unknowable and unspeakable only felt by my senses, beyond words.
