It all started with an invitation. The ancient pilgrim walk of the labyrinth beckoned me to come. I was in Seattle at a retreat centre on Puget Sound spending 3 days in silent reflection with God.
It was time.
I’ll never be the same.
“Come, my little one – Bring your suffering to Me.”
I come. Taking a deep breath I slowly maneuvered through the deep waters of my soul with her ever-present pain & sorrow, grief and loss – “The Great Sadness” weighing her down in hopeless despair. I come.
“Meet me in The Centre of My Intimate Love.” Deep calls to deep. I surrender. It all melts into Love. Waiting in the not-knowing with my forehead bowed and sunken onto the cruciform brick as deep time passes into the here and now. “Rise up, little one.”
“Walk out into Risen Life and New Beginnings.” Dare I? Oh Mysterious Love! By grace, with buried faith, I follow into the Light of Love.
“Rest now and Let it Be.”
The Paschal Mystery of Christ – Suffering, Dying, Waiting, Rising, ….. Resurrection Life – May I stay Awake!
