No Greater

Your eyes reflect back to me an image of myself I have yet to attain.  In this glance is eternity where love flows from a never ending source.  The only desire is to be in you.  There is no greater desire and no greater pleasure.

The Mystical Meaning of the Story of Job

In the story of Job, Yahweh asks Satan to consider how "perfect and upright" Job is and how he "turns away from evil." Satan replies, "Does Job not fear you for a reason? You have blessed the work of his hands and his substance is increased in the land. But put forth your hand now and touch all he has, and he will curse you to your face." In other words we don't honor God because we love our Creator but because we fear losing our material riches and comforts if we offend Him. It is our wealth and physical well-being that matters to us, not our loving, mutually considerate relationship with God.
To this accusation Yahweh instructs Satan to test Job to see if this is so. Job endures the dreadful tests without cursing Yahweh. Afterwards, Job tries to explain Yahweh's reasons. Job wanted to put Yahweh on trial for his unrighteous acts against a righteous man. Yahweh than demands Job search his heart for deeper answers to His question, "Where were you when I laid the foundations of the Earth?" (Job 38:1-7) Job drops to his knees realizing the unquestionable greatness of God. He is reminding Job that a godly part of us was with God when he laid the foundations of the Earth. We have always been a part of God, and always will be.
The message is that heaven has a design and plan for greater than what can be shown to any human being. All that is within the vast scope of creation has a purpose known to God. Job falling to his knees symbolizes the mystical act of surrender we all must make in order to trust God's plan for us.
Job's life represents our desire to have God's reward, our goodness with goodness and punish only those who deserve it. Job teaches us the power of humility and the power of endurance. Job's endurance test is a test of the soul's mystical capacity: Can it endure an encounter with God? Enduring a revelation of the divine plan and accepting it builds strength of soul. A mystical experience fills your soul with undeniable proof that you are intimately known by an omniscient God.

I feel a remoteness that exist when your not present.  A quietude that divides my nights and days.  They stretch themselves out and my soul lingers in this space.  I am deaf to your voice as Winter is after Fall and Summer has left as a guest.  Sadness settles in and takes root in my heart.  He claims to be a friend of my soul and that He is writing love poems on my heart to help me through this long Winter.  He reassures me He will leave when Spring comes and that with Her arrival there are endless possibilities.

Rumi- The Soul of Reality

How marvelous a lover is, for he gathers power, grows, and fills with vibrant energy from the image of his Beloved.  This should not surprise you; think of how much perpetual strength the image of Layla fed Majnun.
Since the image of what is after all a transient beloved possesses so great a power to embolden the lover, why are you surprised that the Image of the Eternal Beloved should stream strength into the Lover, both here in this world and in the Invisible?  That Image is not "Imagination" at all; it is the Soul of Reality.

The Demands of Divine Love

Divine love demands servanthood.  It will drag a man through the trenches of death and annihilate self.  The boundless and vast landscape of divine love bares no resemblance of self.  It is the executioner and one must submit to its demands before one can sail its ocean.

My Letter To The Troops- No. 2

From Journal Entry 5/27/2012

Dear Sir or Madam,

Each man has in his life moments that forever change him.  These "little wonders" cause him to reflect on his life and God.  He begins to ask whether or not God exist.
Man knows he has had a "little wonder" when at that moment it's as if time has stopped and everything is surreal.  It can be the birth of a baby, surviving an accident, the loss of a loved one, or any traumatic event.  And in that moment of "little wonder" your perception of reality is forever changed. Your world has just gotten bigger.
You began to reflect on your life searching for its meaning.  Asking yourself does everything in my life have meaning?  You think about whether or not there is a greater consciousness behind the events in your life.  You began to reflect on your childhood and your relationship with God.  You have grown up with the image of a God fearing God. 
Now your an adult and you want a loving God that understands your burdens and struggles.  What you long for is a friendship with God.  So what is the best way to began a friendship with Him?  By getting to know your own soul; your getting to know God.
Praying to God and speaking to Him as a friend breaks down those boundaries as a domineering father.  It allows you to be real.  You can be real  because your speaking from your heart.  And that's what God longs for is your heart.
Tell Him your burdens, disappointments, and longings.  When you devote a dialogue with God everyday, essentially you are maturing in spirit; building a lasting relationship with God.  By remaining steadfast in your prayers, you open yourself up to God's grace.

God Bless,

Madison Michelle
