Poem: Ether

Our Father lives in the charged ether,
above and all around us
in splendid symmetry,
the source of life and love and healing.
The fabulous towers, the spires
and flowering tracery of organic design,
were all conceived and built by better men than us
in an age of gold.
These, the natural avenues of life
in which our ancestors sat, goodness drawn down
into those cleansing naves
where the deep organ soothed,
where we took the true medicine, giving thanks,
not to some mystery or intangible presence,
but the reality of His environment, His conduit,
His soft conversation with us
which we have – nearly all of us –
forgotten, our memory blighted, expunged,
erased, while we plod obliviously
around the stark bare stones and ruined choirs
in awe of a shell, without ever seeing the whole,
the rich truth of the past
and future’s promise
in this penurious present.

Tarot Reading for Friday January 7

Change is in the air. Change materially, financially but also spiritually. Their is an ongoing shakeup and today may seem some significant developments that cannot be ignored.

The old ways, the old stories, cannot stay forever. The ensuing unsettlement – and today’s energy feels somewhat unsettled – is only part of the process. There are only so many fingers one can put in the dam before it breaks. But that deluge is not quite yet. We don’t know when that might be.

However, covering all this, there is also a benign, steadfast authority looking out for us today. Call it God, or the universe, but ultimately all will be well if we have faith.
