Hidden

You cannot hide

From the presence

Of the Lord

Your life

Is hidden

In the Bible

 

Colossians 3:3

“For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.”

St. Luke 12:2

“For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.”

 

 

Genesis 3:8

“…and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden.”

 

 

 

Spirit

Spirit is eternal

And always present

 

Those who die

Are still here

We just cannot

See them

But they can

See us

 

Some things

Are hidden

And just because

We cannot

See them

Does not mean

They are not here

 

II Corinth 4:18

“While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things that are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.”

 

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

 

The Mind

When your mind

Tells you something

Ask your Self

Is it true

 

The mind is the

Great deceiver

 

It is capable

Of deceiving us to see

Things that are

Not really there

 

The world

The illusion

We have created

Our shared reality

 

But what about

Our true reality

Our true Self

 

Not who we appear to be

Not who the mind

Would have us think we are

 

But our Spirit

Our soul

Who we truly are

 

That which remains hidden

By the mind

The mind is like a veil

Behind which is the Spirit

 

The mind is the adversary

Of the Spirit

They war for our soul

 

Will we give our soul

To the adversary

To use as it pleases

 

Or will we give our soul

To the Spirit

To fulfill the will of God
