Set It All Ablaze

Gather the “stuff” of your life:
what you consider prime,
ordinary, and even waste.
Set it all ablaze into
a living fire fueled
by faith that does
not consume but simply
sheds light upon the All
of creation without judgement,
rejection or denial,
and you may begin, perhaps,
to know and love yourself
in new and wonderful ways.

Genuine Surrender


If our surrender to the Divine
does not include a humble admission
of the impotence of mind and will alone
to effect the peace and harmony we so long for,
it may just be a Promethean ploy
to steal fire from the gods.
