Love's Snare

Your gift of love has no reason to give.  It gives out of its heart's longings.  What does man know of love- except the degrees it snares one's heart?  I am caught in your snare; driven mad by this intoxicating wine.  Please deliver me to my cross, so I can escape this world of illusions, and be in your Presence again!

The Two Hungers

The Bushman in the Kalahari Desert talk about two "hungers."
There is the Great Hunger and there is the Little Hunger.
The Little Hunger wants food for the belly;
but the Great Hunger,
the greatest hunger of all, is the hunger for meaning...

There's ultimately only one thing that makes
human beings deeply and profoundly bitter,
and that is to have thrust upon them
a life without meaning...

There is nothing wrong in searching for happiness....
But of far more comfort to the soul...
is something greater than happiness
or unhappiness, and that is meaning.
Beacause meaning transfigures all...
Once what you are doing has for you meaning,
it is irrelevant whether you're happy
or unhappy.  You are content- you are not alone
in your Spirit- you belong.

The Bridge

The bridge between Heaven and earth exist because of love.  The blood of Christ formed the bridge.  The love he has is divine love, and willingly he sacrificed his life so we may have a way to our Heavenly Father.  The bridge is for all Lovers to travel by.  It is a hard journey, not for the half-hearted.  If you choose the bridge as your path, know that you are on your way home.

Our Inner Life

One of the first things I do in the morning is write down my dreams in a journal.  Often in the middle of the night, I will wake up from a dream and jot down the things that stood out in the dream.  In the morning I will fill in the blanks.  I then go over my symbols and began the interpretation of each symbol.  After years of practice, I can easily understand my unique dream symbols and those that are universal.  After years of dedication, I am able to navigate my life by working with my dreams.
We all have an inner life, inner thoughts, and inner voice.  Those who do believe in a spiritual source of their inner life tend to want to unite their interior and exterior lives as much as possible as an authentic expression of love.  Consider you dreams, hopes, passions, beliefs, visions, and longings.  A great way to honor your inner life is by keeping a journal.

Your Secret

I arrived out of darkness into your Light.
My soul free of it's shackles and taking flight.

In the dark was the hidden Truth.
My sufferings and longings only you knew.

You delivered me from myself to myself.
I have found your Paradise by going through my hell.

Oh, if only the world knew of your secret.
They too would break down death's door to keep it.

My Companions

I desire to have companions that are sweet tempered.  A cool head who's thoughts are on 'above'.  The companions in my life don't think ill of me and know I have their best interest at heart.  If your not my companion, I have no use for you.
