God had an idea – It was so beautiful God decided to release it out into the void Where it took flight And became everything.
It would take eternity To appreciate everything in detail So why not take a single thing – or person – Taking as much time as you need And, after a while, some more time – Waiting for the surprise about what you, at first, hadn’t glimpsed.
Yes, it’s time that makes things (and people) more beautiful – Just when you’re starting to get impatient – not seeing anything new – It comes down like glory – drenching you.
Where did this surprising beauty come from? Was it hiding inside ourselves all along – just waiting for a touch – Or a light of love To cleave one’s heart like a gentle sword?
Oh, God, give us a lot more beauty Than we’re able to, at first, see – And then give us time to wait for this unknown beauty to open – Time to discover the “pearl” That is us!
Diner Mystic left church behind, But ended up coming back to sit with Jesus Because, eventually, he came to understand Jesus Was who they said he was – A human being actually capable of “mirroring” God – While living in a human/God duality.
Diner Mystic left the Church 40 years ago And returned when he was able to say “Jesus Christ” – Numbering himself among the others who are able to say this – Including Mary Magdalene (the first), as well as the other Mary who Jesus taught spirituality, His own mother Mary – The women at the Cross – His disciples – And then, last but not least, Saul/Paul.
It took Diner Mystic a long time to arrive at this point – And he apologizes for his tardiness – But that was the path necessary for him “to say it real” – He had to leave in order to come back – He had to travel to the ends of the universe To find his very own feet.
“Mr. Personality” gets up onto the stage And shouts: “Look at me, Look at me!”
This act verges on the hysterical – A part he’s always wanted to play.
Someone living inside one’s personality has no imagination Since they could actually be living inside a much larger Being.
For example, instead of “going small” – Expressing oneself as a modified (but hopefully better) “self” On some small stage or downtown square One could go all the way.
Way past the gold-painted alters Or soaring baroque spires – All the way up to Heaven – To God.
Instead of possessing a “personality” One could decide to take up residence inside God’s body – God’s illumined mind Or God’s thrumming heart.
Then you would be able to say God’s truth Through your own mouth – Feel God’s love Through your own human heart – See far out to infinity and think about eternity While engaged in singing God’s universal song –
