Participating in the creation of joy

This is a fragment of a poem I re-discovered today. I think this week I will consider this potential to change our universe by changing our relationship with it. I believe that if we change our relationship with our own lives, we can experience joy.

 

We know that there is an

enormous power

inherent in each of us, at every moment

in time

to experience the unbounded love

and deep joy

which is potentially our inheritance.

 

Remind us

that our experience of the infinite,

— the hidden and hallowed power —

is through our experience of this

Creation,

and in our relationship with

our fellow beings

and that we have been granted the

faculty to change our universe

by changing our relationship with it.

    (Lent journey occupied me full time, then Easter, then Cursillo. Now I can catch up on your wonderful posts!)
    And this POST, this poem pretty much sums up my Lenten learning, which all started with my need to change my relationship with my new home, which I was hating and whining about, not unlike the Israelites in the desert. Via pain and joy of the Lent/Cursillo journey I am HOME!
    I’ll be adding this poem to my journal!
    Love you!
