Thank You for the Gift of Life
We are distant
So we count the seconds
Painfully aware that our appearance on Earth
Is only a tiny insertion into Creation.
Yet we feel eternity,
Long for eternity,
Know deep inside us
That we are eternal.
Struggling to find meaning, understanding,
In the apparent contradiction of our few years
And our knowing.
Something in us is from the core
We are coded to know it,
Be with it
Yet trained away from it all our life.
So we re-petition that
Which gives us life
Thank you for the gift of life
For the ability to perceive beauty
To see colors
To feel love
Thank you for the human faculties
May I remember the Great Purpose
May I remember my purpose
May it continue
