Hand

Hand

When we take the hand
of another human being
and feed her when she is hungry
comfort him when he is sad

When we take the hand
of another human being
and pray with her the prayers
hold him in our arms

When we take the hand
of ourselves
and love the hand that holds us
and feel equality caress us

We know the hand
we know the need
we know the prayer
we know it all …

Intimacy

Intimacy

The Latin verb: “intimare” means:
tell, tell about, narrate, describe.

To tell stories to each other
to tell about emotions
to describe all thoughts that come to mind
that is intimacy

Be fully present in yourself
when the other tells his stories

Be fully present in yourself
when the other takes your hand

Be fully present in yourself
when you look into each others eyes

Being fully present in yourself
is the most intimate thing there is
then there is no other
then you are the other …

Daily bread

When you eat
your daily bread
What do you do
after you have swallowed it?

Do you turn your oesophagus on?
Do you command your stomach to do its job?
Do you convince your pancreas to make enzymes?

What if all the words you hear ..
What if all the thoughts that come to mind ..
What if the whole world you perceive ..

Is just that:
Daily bread

You take it in
and it does
what it has to do

somewhere in you ..

And when action arises,
you will notice that

And you will act or not

And when silence arises,
you will notice that

And truth
And love
And trust
And …

Daily bread:
take it in and leave the rest to God …

When ‘knowing’ becomes Wisdom

When ‘judging’ becomes Watching
When ‘thinking’ becomes Stillness

Then you know
Grace has found you
and brought you
Home …
