Wholly Communion

I now realize
it is not sufficient
to be interested in Jesus
only for what He can do for me,
or to simply subscribe to a religion about Him
or even to make Him an object of worship,
which he never suggested.

From Jesus’ point of view
that would be totally unsatisfactory,
as His call was to
emulate, not worship Him.

I now realize
I must constantly
Question Jesus,
constantly questioning myself,
critiquing, testing, learning, creating,
learning that the more I understand,
the more I will not be mislead
by the maxims by which we were brought up,
many of which
do not exemplify Jesus’ life and teachings
at all.

I now realize
I must have the courage
to adhere to Him,
not to tradition, doctrine, dogma,
not to convention,
not to the concept of biblical inerrancy.

I now realize
that my spiritual journey
involves repeated trips
out on numerous and various limbs
and that these trips
do not cause me to disappear
into some amorphous sea of generalized Being,
nor do they prevent me from being
totally united with all of creation
and the Creator.

I now realize
I am already united with all others
and the Creator
on a level so deep,
I am not yet fully conscious of it
praying for
Thy Kingdom Come,
Thy Will Be Done,
On Earth as it is in Heaven
All are One
A Wholly Communion.
