A Spiritual Journey
And the world cannot be discovered by a journey of miles,
no matter how long,
but only by a spiritual journey,
a journey of one inch,
very arduous and humbling and joyful,
by which we arrive at the ground at our feet,
and learn to be at home.
~ Wendell Berry ~
Here we are –
With the only thing truly meaningful in life and death;
the love we feel for one another and those most dear to us.
We suffer for that love, but it’s a price worth paying,
Because in the end it’s the only thing left with meaning.
Everything else falls away, but our love,
And memories of the love we have shared.
The past is gone, but in our memories
and the future is uncertain.
Whether you believe in heaven or not,
the only thing that truly matters
is the love we have for one another.
I believe in spirit
and that we are more than just the body.
Because the Great Ones who love us say it is so
and they would not lie to those they love.
Love is like an Angel in our heart,
and Angels are the best company we can keep.
Although now we are only human,
in their company we to become like Angels.
And when we love they surely touch our hearts.
