All that I have is Yours

 

“All that I have is yours” is a statement often and loosely used to indicate a relationship commitment, perhaps, or the generosity of hospitality. Sometimes it is said flippantly or ironically, insincere words that are quickly forgotten.

Easter’s Reminder of the Greatest Prize

I write as the Easter Full Moon comes into its climax, and, fittingly, at this time of completion, a heavy fire burns out of control on the mountains opposite my home, consuming old bracken and other dying vegetation and covering the skies with grey fog. Whether the fire was started maliciously or not I do not know, but even though it is creating grievous damage, it is serving to prepare the ground for new life.

Listening to God, this Easter

For many years Easter was a difficult time for me, filled with the memory of the suffering and loss of the Crucifixion, re-surfacing lifetime after lifetime. The Christian joy of the story of the Resurrection, following the sorrow, did not touch me. It was quite recently that I was able to lay to rest those personal ghosts of the past and see, gratefully, the need for the Easter story and its significance as a milestone on the human journey to our shared spiritual destiny.

The Word of God

However much the details may have been altered over time, the life and death of Jesus have taught us about the importance of unconditional love for ourselves and within our community, about acceptance, integrity and kindness. He is known as the Son of God and was the Messenger for God at a time when we had forgotten how to hear, or to listen.

We do not need messengers, or intermediaries, now. It is time to hear the voice of God directly, you and I, in the wind and the birdsong, in the running waters and especially in the silence.

I encourage you, this Easter, as life begins and ends with the changing seasons, as people celebrate and mourn perhaps, to find the time to listen to the silence which is around you always even in the busiest surroundings; so doing will take you to a place of peace far from human frailty, a place and state of being where you will find inspiration in God’s message, spoken just for you.

Epiphany, and Returning to Reality

Epiphany, celebrated each year on 6th January, marks the ending of modern Christmas celebrations and, biblically, the visit of the Wise Men to baby Jesus, with gifts. Both events bring us back to the reality of our relationship with ourselves, our world, and what lies beyond.

Mandela – the Dying and the Lasting of a Great Light

It seemed right for me to delay writing about the death of Nelson Mandela until three days had passed, until the time when his soul had completed its journey of separation from the world of physicality. It is now.

The New Hunt for Missing Nazis – a Moral Dilemma

Even though we may not be involved in it directly, being witness to a moral dilemma can help our understanding of who we are; the new hunt for surviving Nazi war criminals living in Germany gives much food for thought.
