A friend of mine asked me a question. I post this poem, one of my favorite spiritual pieces, in answer. My friend, this is what I think it means.
I have reached the inner vision
And through thy spirit in me
I have heard thy wondrous secret.
Through thy mystic insight
Thou hast caused a spring of knowledge
To well up within me,
A fountain of power pouring forth living waters;
A flood of love and all embracing wisdom
Like the splendor of eternal light
–From the Essene Gospel of Peace
Rocking boat, fish slaps.
Truly, no words can describe
The peace of this place.
I had the privilege today of having one of my Wiseacre Way posts published on one of my favorite blogs, Life in the Boomer Lane, a funny, irreverent and insightful look at growing old in America that the author calls Guerrilla Aging. The essay she chose to post was “My Kilimanjaro, and Yours,” which I originally posted on April 12, 2014.
If you have not had the pleasure of reading Life in the Boomer Lane, I highly recommend it (and not just because the author was good enough to share her audience with me).
Here’s the link. Enjoy. http://lifeintheboomerlane.com/
