AN ATTENTION TO WHAT CANNOT CHANGE*
ALL THAT IS..AH!
*Rather than focus on what needs changing,
TURN THE ATTENTION TO WHAT CANNOT CHANGE.
What is this dance of bliss
Cascading through my senses?
I feel new life, holy rapture
Burning through my nerves and veins.
Was it a god who shaped these symbols
Summoning this inner ecstasy,
Filling my impoverished heart with joy,
And revealing, through some mysterious impulse,
Nature's secret sinews surrounding me?
In this pure array of emblems I see
Nature's workings laid bare before me.
Only now do I comprehend the sage's wise words:
It is your mind that is closed, your heart that is lifeless!
....rise without fright,
and bathe your earthly breast
in the rosy dawn's light!
Each in the other works and lives and is whole!
While heavenly beings climb and descend
Passing down their golden pails,
And with their incense-pinioned wings
All heaven and earth are blessed;
They sing in symphony
through all things!

“Only my body is visible, but not I:
‘I and my Father are one,’ and we are invisible; we live in each other--
the Father in me, and I in the Father, inseparable and indivisible.”
~Joel S Goldsmith
8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.
9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me:
John 10:30 (KJV)
30 I and my Father are one.
only sees the body and wants to somehow witness God in the same way.
If that were possible,
that would make two separate beings – a man and a God.
