Roots and Seeds

to mention them all
would take a lifetime.
here are just a few:
tulip, tomato, woman,
river, camel, whale,
raindrop, star, bird,
pearl, lion, cloud,
tree, beetle, moon…

if you were to search
within each one
and search within again
and again and again,

farther than any microscope
could go, you would be amazed
to find every atom swirling
around and around and around
the One. within you is a root
going back to Him that contains
the answer to every secret,
the remedy for every doubt.
the heartbeat of everything
in the universe. you, alone,
would be nothing if you knew
you are not you, but a God-seed
of the eternal Truth.

    Last night I dream I was overseeing the universe from some high above vintage point and this just gave me goosebumps because I was just wondering how we must all revovle around Him:
    “farther than any microscope
    could go, you would be amazed
    to find every atom swirling
    around and around and around
    the One.”
