Belief

by Ingi House

A church next to a hotel
tells the story of my city
of my country
of myself
though I have long ago lost
belief in the steeple.

I can’t help but think
of the loneliness
that would make gods
themselves cry down
a sanctuary
of their love.

Musical composition by Victor David Sandiego

36th Spirit: The Greek word kairos means:
The moment that can open and
keep opening into Eternity.


Eternity is Love’s Destination

Eternity has
opened to me...but there was
no reliable
manual to maintain or
to expand that opening
in time or in form.
Therefore time must form
within itself its

own hubris release...
ceasing its illusional games...
Letting humans go
on home...for...giving us only
volitionary freedom
keeps Planet Earth on
edge cycle after cycle.
We are destroying Mother!
She wants our Love released...

Eternity is Love freed
not limited by our time...
Unconditional Love is
unconditional freedom...
