I am a child of God. This is the existential and Christian
conclusion I have arrived at this particular
juncture of my pilgrimage on Earth.
Having written this, I am well aware that I employ words
to describe the indescribable as well as the
ineffable. Words cannot touch the face of God and I cannot
express the incorruptible with the corruptible
limits provided for by my five senses and my finite mind.
I don’t want anything. I have God. I have my son. I have
health. I have a mind others have called brilliant, others
beautiful, others deep. I’ll take all of them. I have lived, as
Hesse wrote in one of his poems, with gusto. I have
employment and insurance. A roof under my head and the privilege and safety provided by the country of
my birth to take leisure in determining the deeper things in life – such as “Who I am?”
I need to serve others, sustain a life of prayer, study, and meditation. I seek and pursue to be in harmony
(and one) with the mind of Christ. To channel Christ Consciousness and to live in accordance with the
Holy Spirit. I believe I have possessed this mind of Christ. But I also know that I have rejected it.
As in the Hebrew sacred tradition, we have the daily opportunity to Shuv, or to turn back to God. I ask
God in my daily office to grant me the wisdom, tenacity, and grace to remain in oneness with the mind of
As a child of God, I evolve. I will grow. And in full stature to the saint God already sees me as. I
believe this is the place I begin each day from. This is how I get what I need. God has blessed me with
what I want.
