Being both a particle and a wave



During my morning contemplation, I was reflecting on my personal theme for the year – Loving Connection to Source. What came to me was a Source that lives within and without, a Source that knows no beginning and no end, a Source that I would call Sophia in the Gnostic tradition or Shekinah in the Kabbala. That led me to dig out the following quote, on of my favorites. Maybe this is an experience of unity consciousness, in it’s most poetic form. 

“I am the dreamer and the dream. I am the every thing that is nothing, the spark of the soul, fire of the heart, ember of love. I am up and down, top and bottom, strange and charmed. I am the woman clothed in the sun and the child swaddled in darkness. I am the tissue of contradiction, the eye in the needle, the needle in the eye. I am the insubstantial and absolute idea, and the hammer that shatters your skull. I am the colour you have not named, the light which makes all visible except itself. I am the wave of reason, the particle of faith, I am the star in the cosmos and the atom with the universe inside, I don’t seek, I find. I am the writing on the wall, the unutterable speech of the stone.”

John Dufresne, Louisiana Power and Light  quoted in Diane Schoemperlen, Our Lady of the Lost and Found,  p. 201

If you know who created this glorious image, please let me know. I forgot to make a note of it.

I choose Love


Who knew losing my keys could create a tangle of self hatred, doubt and irritability? I didn’t until I couldn’t find my keys after a week of searching. Mind you, any garment with pockets is now clean, folded tidily and in it’s right place. Thankfully, this video found me, via http://www.the2012 scenario. I choose to love myself in the midst of my imperfections. I choose to love the world in the midst of uncertainty. I choose love.
