Awakening To The Fire Of Our Reality
“Earth’s crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God,
But only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit around it and pluck blackberries.”
—Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Moses met the Eternal God in the burning bush. When Moses asked His Name, He said, “I AM THAT I AM”. A Name given to mankind as a memorial to all generations and a statement of Being.
Where is our burning bush? It can come at any moment, the awareness of your child’s laugh, the goodness of a stranger, the remarkable miracle of a sunset, the quality of light pouring across the city or the plains. The Immanent God is all around us, beckoning us to a greater sense of reality.
Our calling is to awaken. The Buddha said, “I am awake”. Let us awaken.
“Earth is a planet of violet fire, earth is the purity God desires. I am a being of violet fire, I am the purity God desires”.
Try this prayer as you walk through your day and awaken.
