More Intimate Than Inside

Naked of Time

Nov 27, 2017


Living in Love
beyond Beliefs

Silent Prayer

I paddled up the Santa Fe River, no one knows I'm here, no one. Raining. Thanksgiving Day. No words of gratitude here, none needed. Alone, no one needed. Water quiet, dark, alive. Nature unassuming, subtle. Yes, Love simplifies, being in Love, with nothing, no meaning at all to this. Only, a wild, mute aloneness, untouched, naked of time. Life is, no meaning, nothing to only this. Sweet simplicity, silent solitude, no voice needing to say "Amen!" or choir to herald "Hallelujah" anymore. This is enough, this meaningless communion, without creed or church. Here, worship is not done, is.

Blissfully Lost
no Way

the Way

No desire
to be found

Only to remain
at rest, Here

in this Silence
in this Stillness
in this Sweet Embrace

with You
inside our Love, inside us
more intimate than inside

You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.

*Henry David Thoreau. Walden.
