He is not here!
But we are…
Tragedy and Beauty
Sorrow and Mystery
Innocent lives killed
in the midst of God’s glory.
What kind of God is this
Who rises from the dead
Amidst the dead?
Let us not get too comfortable
with the Beauty of the Risen Christ
Lest we forget that Christ is
Still in the tomb of our hearts
The quantum reality: Dead and Alive
Until the Spirit breaks through
Our cloistered lives and leads us to
the Space between Death and Life
Where the power of love breaks through
The pain of evil into the future fullness of life.
Jesus is not here- but we are
The choice for New Life now lies with us.
Thank you so much, Ilia for this beauty and challenge. Easter blessings, a new reader, Jen-Beth
Thank You Ilia! Truth to embrace and live into. Karen
I love the quantum metaphor. We exist in superposition. We are the medium of evolution and the shape of the resistance. Yet the measurement has been made, and the outcome is Life. It is present to us, sideways on time. Jesus has “harrowed hell”, and all that is wrong is unmade.
Beautiful description of the mystery of Love. Thanks so much Ilia!
Love the Schrodinger allusion – never thought about our spiritual condition in that way – thanks, Ilia – something new to chew on!
Wonderful, deeply meaningful, challenging, wise, difficult and so true. Thank you so much.
poetry is the music of the soul’s heart…..and we are the poetry now to be proclaimed……thanks Illa for the reminder.
Thank you so much Sister Ilia, Happy Easter to you too. Let’s always say yes to life no matter the outcome.
Beautiful expression of Life and Love! I am reminded of the commandment to the Disciples, ‘Love one another as I have loved you.’ So simple, so hard, and the only way the Realm of God is brought into our world, a challenge, but also blessed opportunity!
