Being the person

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.



The stone beside the pond
owes nothing

is being a stone
the stone beside the pond

Not seeking purely being
the turtle sits on the stone

that holds the turtle
that sits in the light

All eternity passes though them
Purity of being solid as stone


Every creature flows
from its stillness

The stone perfectly here
the turtle absolutely now

It is best not to leave
until you have become

the person beside the pond
your belonging given

and then in the next place
there too



Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
