For thirty years I sought God.
But when I looked carefully ....
I found that in reality God was
the seeker .... and I the sought. "
- Bayazid Bistami
I think I have always sought to find that Sacred
To connect with Sacred Power
But I must have a short-attention span
All too often I suddenly realize
That my attention is clearly
On success, or money
On political candidates (yuk)
On my past
So many things
The Sacred just gets lost
I am found
In the sun coming over the edge of the earth
In a text from a friend
In a mountain top breaking through the clouds
In calves playing in the field
Suddenly the Sacred is there
In my face
“Hey! I’ve been looking for you”
