The Invisible Side of Life

Think about all the vital things
going on every second that occur out of sight:
radio waves, cellular signals, solar energy,
your breath (unless it’s really cold out),
your thoughts, your beating heart.
 
Spirit is like the wind – you can’t see It -
you can only see the effects of It.
 
A breeze can keep you cool in summer
and chill you to the bone in winter.
So too, the Everlasting Spirit
is a Power operating in your life that you cannot see,
but is absolutely Real,
and It will manifest magnificently in your life
if you cooperate with Its Laws and Ways.
 
Don’t limit your experience
to only that which you can see with your physical eyes.
Court the Beloved with your sincere seeking.
It’s hard to kiss someone with your eyes open.
You have to go inside to take it all in.
