Reflection for 27th February 2013

Meditation

Wearing a beautiful garland of forest flowers,
You shine like the light of the sun.
You are the Supreme Soul, the Supreme Light.
You are the Supreme Truth,
and the Supreme Refuge.
Your Form is eternal,
full of knowledge and full of bliss.

Inspired by 108 Names of Nrisimhadeva
Devaki Katja Nagel

 

We hear so much about God
you would think that some people
found some primary data on the subject.
They sell their truth
with supreme confidence.

They tell small children
that God is watching them—
and keeping a record of the scenes.

They terrify everyone
and say that God tells them to do it.

But it is God who is Supreme Truth,
not those who claim to be.

Play it safe: Put your trust in God.

Joan Chittister
