The Spirit Comes Full Circle

On reflection of my life
I start here
Where I am now

According to the Bible,
If the creation story holds true
Which it will,
We can all trace our line
Back to the garden
To Adam and Eve
The first man and first woman
The only two never born
And these two are one

But further back
Before Eve
There was only Adam
Yet she was with him
A part of him
A rib, some say

So she was present
With him
Before she was taken
From him
And made to appear
Separate from him

Before that
There was no Adam
Only the dust of the ground
Out of which the man was formed
And became a living soul
After receiving the breath of life

Before that there was light

Before that there was
Heaven and earth
And God who created them
What is seen and what is not
The form and the formless
The particle and the wave
And these two are one

And between the creation
Of heaven and earth
And the light
Was the spirit of God
She who was with him
In the beginning
Before the dividing time
And that is where we are now

Genesis 1:2

“The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”

Glory of God

We are like him

Because we are him

God does not see us

As his creation

He sees us as himself

And therein lies his glory

 

Colossians 3:4

“When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

Mother of All Living

Art: Formation of Eve by Ed Suominen

And all that God made was good

Except it was not good that man be alone

So God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man

 

And took from him a rib

And fashioned from that rib a woman

 

How long did that take

To prepare a wife for his creation

How long was his creation asleep

 

He slept until the woman

Was brought to him

To be his wife

Then everything was good

 

It is like Christ and his bride

That which has been prepared for him

A house in which all his children live

The mother of all living

Captivated

Art: Princess in a Tree, artist unknown

Captive

But not a prisoner

 

Captivated

By his charms

And his wisdom

And his love

 

By that he held me captive

But I am no longer captive

 

He has freed me

From the illusion

He created

Just for me

 

He hid me

Within his creation

 

What was once hidden

Is no longer hidden

 

It is made manifest

By the illusion he created
