In the Whirlwind


I am the Love that rises,

always rises…

I rise with the sun, and

I rise with the moon…

I rise to draw down like gravity,

toward the center,

I rise to the challenge.

I rise to see born the yet-unrevealed-

what-waits-toand I rise to set free,

loosing hope upon my people.

I rise to the new day and


I rise when I weep

and I rise to laugh.

Nothing is stronger

than this essential constant:


I am always and everywhere,

I am for everyone and I am

in everyone, and nothing

can ever separate you from me.

I am

the Love that rises,

always rises.
