Elijah on the mountain only saw God’s back.
So fast does God move
You can only see the footprint where God’s been.
Faster than light is the speed at which God moves,
So fast that by the time you start to take a peek,
God’s no longer in the space you look,
Already returned to Here.
Perhaps the only way to approach
Such blazing dynamic Being
Is to slow down and center in the silent dark,
Surrender the search so that you grasp
Only when hand is open.
Flow into the space of every moment.
Let your mind be free.
Accept with grace whatever you are doing,
That is the only Center you can be.
Be patient, as lovers are patient,
Knowing that the Moon takes time
To reach its fullness.
Can you sit within the night and sense
Approach of day?
As you feel the pierce of thorn
Can you smell the fragrance of the rose?
