Jesus

By Alexis Wittman

He who was LIFE itself
Had to agree to die
To be the opposite of itself
The white and the black
The loss, and leaving
The willingness to be human
Not towering over all
As the bright and shining light
But to be shadow
Wisp
Memory
To brave it all
In doing so
In God’s will
Only
Only
Only
The cup so bitter
The loss so eternal
The leaving body behind
Willing to ascend or descend
To retrieve every lost soul
Every sheep to his shoulder

So his tears at Lazarus’ tomb
So the tears at Gethsemane
So the tears for all humanity
So for himself as well.
Leaving mother + brother + Mary
Joanna behind
Behind Him
As he faced God
His royal father
His governing mother
Leaving the world
Loving
From the cross
Explaing our own pain away
By his own experience
Our own
Our loss -- his
Our grief -- his
Our pain -- his
Our life -- his
Our union --- one
At last.

A Prayer For This Week (June 17 - 23)

By Prayerful Living


Your tabernacle, God, is a place of understanding.
The sanctuary in which You dwell is a state of mind where
I sacrifice my sense of self on the altar of Spirit.
I know that You, God, are the sole creator of the universe.
I work to discern the invisible things of Your creation.
I have faith in you, Spirit. Yours is the only true substance.
Understanding your omnipotence, I am not afraid.
Awaken and uplift my consciousness, God.
Help me to not accept the outward appearance of things,
resolving things into thoughts.
With You, I rise above physical theories knowing that You, Spirit,
are reflected in the true, spiritual things of Mind, Life, Truth and Love.
Through Your healing Christ, I relinquish the material
revealing Your new heaven and new earth now.
Thank you, divine Spirit.
And so it is, Amen.

A Prayer For This Week (June 10 - 16, 2019)

By Prayerful Living


Dear Father-Mother God, consciously I reside in You.
Like a shepherd, You keep me from harm, and guide me.
You are my refuge, my hiding place when trouble comes.
Omnipotent God, divine Life, You fill all space.
Your love surrounds me, I feel so safe in Your embrace.
No storm do I fear, for I know You, God, are right here.
And Your angels too, present in my consciousness,
Your messengers of comfort and goodness, illuminate my path.
I am not afraid, for I know You, God, lovingly govern all that is real.
Evil is not part of Your reality and cannot be part of mine.
Gratefully I know that I abide in Your truth, divine Love.
And so it is, Amen.

A Prayer For This Week (June 3 - 9, 2019)

By Prayerful Living


You are God alone, You are great and do wonderful things.
God, divine Mind, I know You are the only creator, the only cause.
You have made me and give me purpose.
You give me meaning, worth and identity, the only effect I can reflect.
All substance, intelligence, wisdom belong to You, God.     
You are creative Principle. You sustain and govern me.
I see the truth of Your creation through Christ, the light of the world,
“the true idea voicing good.”
You, Spirit, are my pure and perfect source.
I am born again through the knowledge of Your spiritual truth.
Each day I witness Your beautiful creation, God.
I rejoice that I am subject to Your divine power as Your child.
And so it is, Amen.

God the Only Cause and Creator

By Ken G. Cooper

Infinity is not about time.
It has no start or ending.
Our present good is the wondrous now
Of God and His reflecting!

One God is all that ever can be,
Eternal now His power,
And creation-glory mirrors forth
From man and rock and flower.

“I AM THAT I AM” includes naught else, -
The Father-Mother measure:
Right now is man’s dominion sure,
Right now I am God’s treasure.

“And God saw everything that he had made, and behold it was very good.” Genesis 1:31(to 1st .)
“And God said unto Moses I AM THAT I AM:” Exodus 3:14 (to :)
