God is love

Posted by Pelgrim on 10th September 2010

While beholding the sunset the pupil said to his teacher ”God is love.”

The teacher beheld the evening clouds and answered “yes he is, the problem is however our conception of that love.”

Pupil, “How do you mean?”

Teacher, “Well my son, look at the wound at your leg, you cleaned and dressed it and it looks to be healing.”

Pupil, “Yes it does.”

Teacher, ”Still I am telling you that a bacteria infected the wound that it is now multiplying and it will eventually make you sick to death. That same bacteria is a creation of our God of love. Do you perceive that as an act of love?”

Pupil now shocked, “I certainly do not! God forbid!”

Teacher, “that is the problem with conceiving love when it is confined to man’s conception.”

Michael Aaron - this is my soul

Posted by Pelgrim on 9th September 2010

I’m falling, I’m calling, less and less give a damn
Dont ask, dont tell, but I’m in hell
Time slips like mercury, rise and fall with the day
No way, not now, I don’t know how To be
moments, to be right here
To be, oh, to be
Oh, to be

Take time, take pain - don’ t distill anything
Too much, too far, could leave a scar
Follow my path, blur the lens, dim the lights
I trip, I fall, I’d surrender all
To be moments, (not an abstract)
to be right here (into nothing I know)
To say this is my soul

The dust I will become (this is my soul)
The pull of a dying sun (this is my soul)
The fear of letting go of all that I know
This is my soul this is my soul

No distance, no conscience, no metaphors tucked away
I’m played out, laid out, I’ve run aground
Its only the loneliness keeps the prisoner from sleep
In my heart, in my head, the skin I would shed
To be moments, (not an abstract)
to be right here (into nothing I know)
To say this is my soul

The dust I will become (this is my soul)
The pull of a dying sun (this is my soul)
The fear of letting go of all that I know
This is my soul
The pulsing in the blood (this is my soul)
The desert and the flood (this is my soul)
The hope I cant let go
This is my soul, this is my soul
This is my soul
