Holy Spirit

Hearts can be broken

And minds deceived

But our Spirit

Remains holy and pure

Untouched

Truth

What veils the truth

From our comprehension

 

The mind is limited

In its understanding

But the Spirit has no limits

 

Truth and love

Are plain to see

I in you

And you in me

 

Love is a commitment

Based on truth

 

Without truth

There is no love

Without love

There is no marriage

 

Without marriage

There is no unity

 

St. John 14:17

“Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive…but ye know him; for he dwells with you, and shall be in you.”

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

 

The Mind

Art: Immaculate Conception by Giovanni Bapttista Tiepolo

When the spirit

Puts her foot

On the head

Of the serpent

Game over

 

The mind is

A worthy adversary

A worthy opponent

But no match

For the spirit

 

Spirit trumps mind

She created the mind

 

Overcome the mind

Do not see it

As an obstacle

But as a stepping stone

 

Holy Spirit

Art: The Holy Spirit by Waiting on the Word

There is a place

Beyond the mind

But you must

Overcome the mind

To get to it 

This is the Spirit

 

The mind can

Think and reason

But it cannot know

Jesus Christ

And he who sent him

 

But the Spirit can know

She is the body of Christ

His wife 

And these two are one

 

St. John 17:3

“And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”
