The seeds of your next life
are germinating now,
gathering their inherent energies,
drinking from deep pools
of the Life Force. Something new
is gushing through hidden caverns
in the deep recesses of you.
The birthing to come may seem terrible
for a moment
as all you have known falls away,
as the power of evolution
takes shape in your loins.
You might grab hold of whatever is near
when it feels like you are falling
into an unknown world.
But no handhold will be secure,
for letting go is the prelude
to your emerging life.
Your smaller self can no longer contain
the shining forth which is coming,
the beautiful, bifurcated wings unfolding.
Only an angel companion
has seen the radiance pulsing, and
can speak of God’s glory within you.
can say “yes” to the wild transformation
and let God be born again
Of course we don’t want to die
to all that we have known,
as the baby in the womb
fears leaving the security
of a warm and quiet place
to come out into a surprising world,
and trembles at having his cord cut,
losing his only known connection to life.
Being born into a new world
seems like death, the end,
but something else is coming
something expansive, vast, and free.
Something wild in us
a Life Force of incredible power
keeps ending what was
so that what-will-be is born.
This consent is a “yes” to death
which is really “yes” to birth.
It is a goodbye to the known
and a hello
to a wild and free unknown life.
It is “no” to stability
and “yes” to instability.
This consent says, “no more,” to living a small, constricted life,
and “yes, more” to growing an inner harvest.
A mystery is waiting to be born—
God birthing God’s very self
yet waiting for us, like for Mary,
to say, “Yes, may it be so.”
Something has to dissolve,
as in alchemy,
for a new substance to form.
Matter is not static
but is mysteriously evolving,
moving, maturing into a next form.
This consent is a willingness to step out
onto the next stepping stone
which we can’t yet even see.
This consent is about sacred faith.
