Spirit of the day

Posted by Pelgrim on 2nd May 2011

Proverbs 16, 29 A violent man enticeth his neighbour, and leadeth him into the way that is not good

The path of the violent is violence and leads to violence.

The sermon on the mount

Mat 5:38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: 39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have [thy] cloke also. 41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain. 42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.
43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. 44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? 47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more [than others]? do not even the publicans so?
48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Perfect as in hebrew Tsaddik

Gen 6:9 These [are] the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man [and] perfect in his generations, [and] Noah walked with God.

Mumford and Sons - Roll away your stone

Posted by Pelgrim on 4th January 2011

Roll away your stone, I’ll roll away mine
Together we can see what we will find
Don’t leave me alone at this time,
For I’m afraid of what I will discover inside

Cause you told me that I would find a hole,
Within the fragile substance of my soul
And I have filled this void with things unreal,
And all the while my character it steals

Darkness is a harsh term don’t you think?
And yet it dominates the things I see

It seems that all my bridges have been burned,
But you say that’s exactly how this grace thing works
It’s not the long walk home that will change this heart,
But the welcome I receive with the restart

Darkness is a harsh term don’t you think?
And yet it dominates the things I see
Darkness is a harsh term don’t you think?
And yet it dominates the things I’ve seen

Stars hide your fires,
These here are my desires
And I will give them up to you this time around
And so, I’ll be found with my stake stuck in this ground
Marking the territory of this newly impassioned soul

hide your fires,
These here are my desires
And I won’t give them up to you this time around
And so, I’ll be found with my stake stuck in this ground
Marking the territory of this newly impassioned soul

But you, you’ve gone too far this time
You have neither reason nor rhyme
With which to take this soul that is so rightfully mine

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

a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe

Posted by Pelgrim on 11th May 2010

Einstein

“Every one who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science
 becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe -
a spirit vastly superior to that of man, and one in the face of which
we with our modest powers must feel humble.”
- Albert Einstein

A human being is part of a whole..

Posted by Pelgrim on 11th May 2010

Einstein

“A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe,
a part limited in time and space.
He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings,
as something separated from the rest
a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.
This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to
our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us.
Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison
by widening our circles of compassion
to embrace all living creatures
and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
Albert Einstein

The hurdle of true dialogue

Posted by Pelgrim on 23rd June 2009

Our self makes itself, the measure of all things.
True communion flows from our heart, guiding our mouth and acts.
The rational of self enthrones itself directing others,
finding differences instead of common ground,
separating instead of uniting,
scattering instead of gathering.

The Life’s house

Posted by Pelgrim on 26th March 2009

“Teacher”, the pupil said, “when I venture on the path of the spiritual journey what will happen to my life’s house?”

The teachter paused to scoop water from the brook and after a pause looked at the pupil and said “Our house will be shaken to its very foundations upon what it is build, it will come tumbling down around us. When we move on the contours of our old house are fading and instead we experience the promise of a house and a whole city without walls. The struggle is that our eye cannot perceive the air separating the inside from the outside, but that is just the illusion we cling on to.

To unearth the vision that lies beyond our grasp and reunite the light of the eye to its true source that shines brighter as a thousand suns and still is kinder than the sun in the sky.”

From a work in progress based on Psalm 119, 54

First encounter

Posted by Pelgrim on 4th January 2009

“What is the temple you are going to build me? Child of man! Do not I fill heaven and earth? And did not I establish its foundations? Did not Salomon inform you that his temple build of stones, cut out by human hands, could not contain me!”

“Is not Life an expression of itself and do not I form the the gift of Life within you? So what could you possibly give me, that is not mine?”

The student fell to his knees.

Thundering ”What is the desire of your heart? To have more of what belongs to me? ……. Or to be found worthy of the gift?”

The student ran to his teacher and cried out “I am unworthy!”

The teacher answered “Are we not all beggars and thieves? Still we can be found Kings and Priests. Remember that God through his Prophets predicted that Mount Sion would be plowed over and the temple made of stone destroyed. Plowing might be descructive to the old roots still it prepares the ground to receive the seed for the harvest.”

From a work in progress based on Psalm 119, 54
- working title “Songs from the wilderness””, H. Blum
