The Holy is in the House
He is the Way.
Follow Him through the Land of Unlikeness;
You will see rare beasts, and have unique adventures.
He is the Truth.
Seek Him in the Kingdom of Anxiety;
You will come to a great city that has expected your return for years.
He is the Life.
Love Him in the World of the Flesh;
And at your marriage all its occasions shall dance for joy.”
W.H. Auden, For the Time Being: A Christmas Oratorio
When we connect with the Sacred
When we finally figure out
That the Holy is in the house
And the way of Jesus / Spirit / Parent
(call it what you will)
Begins to occupy that deep place, which makes us who we are
Then the miracles begin
Our world expands (rare beast, rare places about… is that a unicorn?)
While at the same time we find our self (welcome home)
And find each other, and perhaps, if we are lucky, one special other
In that moment
Dance for joy
