11-23 Beyond Paradox

For you reading this, happy thanksgiving. Those moments (seconds?) when we are still in mind, body, and spirit, and apprehend our Lord’s presence–thanksgiving flows. Jesus love you–and me. 🙂

Beyond Paradox


Paradox abounds. Descend to ascend.

YHWH pierces through flesh,

shatters mental idols as their visages

fade in trackless sand.


Image becomes nothing. One is barren


as a vast, dark temple without any shrines.

A few thoughts flicker, then fade

in darkness beyond.


Cogito nihil.


One no longer exists. Quiescence

lights the void and then—


nothing but You.
