To Embrace The Essence
He was a young man when he went up to the top of the mountain and a very old man when he came down. What he saw we will always wonder but how close was he when he embraced the essence of God.
It was no mean feat we thought he did when he no longer deigned to fight the Romans as he had promised. But now all he said was give to Caesar what was his and to God what belonged to Him.
The essence is not real one thinks, except as one embraces and is embraced. It smacks too much of voodoo unless one tastes of the elixirs of worlds not even born and feasts on food nowhere yet on this world.
To Be embraces as awe in primary form. It is walking naked into the womb of the birth mother only to be embraced by love nowhere else a fact like this. Awesome, awesome, I know I speak, awesome. The heart stops and breathing is not necessary.
The mundane seems a wasted time and my friend Judas will think all is lost since his friend deserted a cause to liberate minds held captive. But note the harness now on the life of our friend and we who know the Essence of the Greatness that swells the bosom.
How else love, how else to keep on living when desire to pray becomes the prime reason of breathing? And all worlds become the altar for kneeling? How you made the flight up the mountain to stand at the precipice of the world is of no import.
But where you stand now is because you embrace with awe the expansion of a heart yielding to the embrace of inspiring and inspired love that you find you embrace in turn. To walk into the womb of your birth mother evoked from memory for countless lifetimes and know ultimate love, the creation of the soul of you.
It is no small thing to stand so and be revealed. It is sufficient reason to lay one’s life down. Instead one moves to work more lifetimes; the great love that spurred the mushroom to live in dampness forever and bring delight to the palate, the rabbit to multiply, the daffodil to bring light after the dregs of winter now gives breath to lift man’s tortured soul and give reason for being.
No matter the insignificant account given the primary being, the ultimate in service will not be curtailed. The need to discover reasons to maintain will be reason for breathing. Enough to be embraced by a perfect love. In itself it silences all need for the search in all life, no matter the dimension.
