POD (Poem Of the Day)
~All are One
In Love…
We are Her body electric,
Her Eternal Time moves in our bellies…
There is no season in which heaven is not
In earth – holding the shape of the Beloved to connect the heart & mind…
We are growing, forgiving, re-membering, forgetting, becoming
We are the many –
One face changing expression –
We are the will of Love…

“To be a poet in a destitute time means: to attend, singing, to the trace of the fugitive gods. This is why the poet in the time of the world’s night utters the holy.”
~Martin Heidegger

‘Why do we occupy ourselves with Spiritual Science? It is as though we were learning the vocabulary of the language through which we approach the Christ. If we take the trouble to learn to think the thoughts of Spiritual Science, and make the mental effort necessary for an understanding of the Cosmic secrets taught by Spiritual Science, then, out of the dim, dark foundations of the Cosmic mysteries, will come forth the figure of Christ Jesus, which will draw near to us and give us the strength and force in which we shall then live. The Christ will guide us, standing beside us as a brother, so that our hearts and souls may be strong enough to grow up to the necessary level of the tasks awaiting humanity in its further development.’ ~ Rudolf Steiner, Cosmic and Human Metamorphoses, Lecture 1. Materialism and Spirituality.
