Logion 77- Gospel of Thomas
I am the light
Shining upon all things.
I am the sum of everything,
For everything has come forth from me,
And towards me everything unfolds.
Split a piece of wood,
And there I am.
Pick up a stone
And you will find me there.
Change the Lighting
by Brooke McNamara
If you can’t change yourself, after all
The efforts, change the light
By which you read your story.
Exchange overhead for something softer-
A lamp, a candle, a vine of shining
Holiday lights-and feel yourself
Become hugged by the fabric of shadows
You see the darkness here has wisdom too.
You see these objects around become related
By the pregnant emptiness that holds them,
And you. Let this light reveal the rapture
Of being just this.
Then, further still, try
Moonlight, or no light, until, at last,
This open, sourceless incandescence
Which you are
No matter who you think you are
Will follow you from the inside
Wherever you may go, however
You may change, or not.
From Feed Your Vow, Poems for Falling into Fullness by Brooke McNamara
I am yours
I am yours whether I live or die.
Become All Flame – by Darlene Franz
If you will, if you will, if you will, if you will,
You can become all flame, become all flame, become all flame.
You can become all flame,
Become all flame.
Quote from St Antoine “for those in the garret if we burn intensely enough, we can light the world on fire”
