Risen

Forgotten my way
Pressured from all sides
No escape this time

Had to die again
Die from old self
Shed my skin

Agonizing
Vulnerable
Terror

Gave up
Gave in
Lost and rotting

Slowly woke
Lost Light found
Eyes opened

Now
One
I Am

Belief/Faith?

In the English language, there is a distinction made between belief and faith, belief in a particular doctrine or deeper trust. We probably need both, but I find more rest and wider horizons in trust. Then my life is less limited to what I believe, and more a liberating flow of life that my heart opens and surrenders to. This is a trust in a Creative Love first, creation and people second.

Truth

Teknologi, Hender, Avtalen, Greit, Skjermen

A friend once said to me, “all you need is to wonder”. I do believe it is important to wonder about life, be curious and to ask questions. As I grow older, I sometimes think I know less and less. At the same time, I believe in what Jesus said, you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free. But again, what is really true or really the truth? Maybe the a truth is that there is so much we will not know on this side of eternity, that by accepting that as true, this will lead to us the experience of greater freedom in life?

Still, I do believe we need silence and contemplation in our lives in order to find truth, in ourselves, in our relations and experiences. So many of us are running from one thing to another. So many of us spend hours upon hours in front of screens, whether it is the computer screen, mobile or tv. It is so easy to become trapped and addicted, if we don’t make the extra effort to choose wisely how we spend our time.

A teacher once said that young people today can’t concentrate for longer than the duration of a Tik-Tok-video. This may be an extreme statement, but it is also partly true. We probably have to accept that the world has become a lot more digital, and of course digital tools can be helpful, and they have also helped us especially in these Corona times. But I do believe we are in danger of partly losing our souls and becoming more superficial if we don’t take the time just BEING without too many distractions, and if we don’t prioritize to spend time in silence and contemplation.

Contemplating Pentecost

Indwelling Spirit

I love You

You are my Creator

Giver of life and breath

Creator of my spirit

Giver of Spirit

Great Mystery

You dwell in the ground of my being

In my innermost heart

Your Spirit meets my spirit

They become one

Great Marvel

This union

Open my inner vision

So I can see

Unbury Your Soul, Maybe?

Lonebirdflying

Maybe it is time to unbury your soul?

Maybe it is time to find your true voice?

Maybe it is time for the world to meet the real you?

Maybe it is time to be your own authority?

Maybe it is time to listen within?

Maybe it is time to worry less about what other people say?

Maybe it is time to choose your own way?

Maybe it is time to find your soul?

Maybe it is time for soul to find you?

Maybe it is time to get off the carousel?

Maybe it is time to sit down and rest?

Maybe it is time to follow your inner calling?

Maybe it is time to unbury your soul?

What is your answer to life calling you from within?

#Rest

Poem slightly inspired by the story of the Mount of Transfiguration.

Rest

Early morning
Got up to rest
Away from the stress
Alone with myself

Pressure from all sides
Heaviness within
Tiredness in face
Sorrow in heart

Would rather escape
This pain arising
Too much to handle
Too much to care

Sipping my coffe
Clearing my mind
Still ready to give up
No desire to drink this cup

Alone with The Alone
Here I am again
Forgotten my way
Yet the I Am is here

Trust in spite of pain
When death feels like freedom
That Love soon again
Will shine like the Son

 

Please note: This poem is not an encouragement to give up on life, rather an anknowledgment of how painful and stressful life can be. The poem also communicates the belief in love and hope in the life we are living. If you are experiencing very difficult times please reach out to someone you can trust and/or ask for professional help. Remember, there is always a way through so we must and can keep living our lives ❤️

 

 

 

A Need For #Celebration

Joy of living

I want to celebrate
The joy and love of life
The broken hearts
The breaking of a new dawn
I want to celebrate
The joy growing from the pain
The everlasting hope and love
Yes, I want to celebrate
I want to shout to the world
What is only really heard in the Great Whisper
There is love, there is hope, there is faith
I want to say it again
There is a Love
Let us celebrate
Now

Bad Theology or #Truth?

Christ's Cross

My faith in a God that for His own sake needed to be satisfied by blood because of his holiness, is far gone! Yes, Christ died for our sins, but not because God needed this. But because we needed a revelation of Love and a pathway to help us become transformed through Love in the experience of our sins and weaknesses.

The revelation of Love tells us: “Let’s be done with scapegoating and sacrifice. Let’s be done with it once and for all. Be free to love yourself, the Divine Creator and others. “I am” is the final sacrifice not so God can love us, but so we can love ourselves.

More than dying for our sins, Christ died “because” of our sins and because of our human need for revenge, scapegoating and quid pro qou. Christ is the final scapegoat!

The All-loving Divine is telling us: “Please look upon the final sacrifice and receive it in your inner being. Now your sacrifice is needed no more, neither do you need to let anyone else pay for your sins. Actually, a sacrifice of blood has never been needed for Me to see you, love you and accept you! “I am” accepted you when you were created and you were blessed from the beginning.

And further: “Christ dying and resurrecting is both an incident in time, and an “incident” in the Eternal Now, happening again, again and forever.

And finally: “You have always been loved, blessed and forgiven! Christ died to set you free, to help you forgive yourself, so that forgiveness and love can help you to become transformed in your inner being.

He died and rose again to free you to live life abundantly! Do you get it? Do you get it?”

Is this bad theology or the Great Truth and The Truly Good News?

I believe in a Truth that says: You are eternally accepted by Love, the beloved loved by The Beloved.

Peace be with you 🙂

Childhood Trauma #poem #trauma

Childhood loss

Sadness within

Takes you low

Irritation from small things

What is hiding deep below the surface

Sorrow within

Takes you low

Feelings of uncertainty

What is hiding deep below the surface

Despair within

Takes you low

A hunger for eyes to have seen

What was barely beneath the surface
