What did you see that first day

What did you feel

When first father and mother knew

turning in that great Mystery?

Did you gasp in amazement

as the great central sun

and singularity

stood in the dance

that would define the All?

The clock started ticking on this grand experiment

when Source broke itself into two.

You were there

I could feel your first breath

as you stood shaking on the other side of that eternal gulf

where beginnings are endings and endings become beginnings

I whispered that I would see you on the other side as the Great Wheel began to turn,

ticking off the seconds

tick tick ticking off cosmic time.

If you want answers to your why

you need only remember this

to understand why it feels so big between us

because of the immensity of that moment

sown everywhere was its divine yearning now found hiding in our hearts.

It propelled creation forward in an endless turning of days.

How couldn’t we be touched by its immensity?

It’s great Secret lives curled within us, sending trembling within us for its great might,

it’s noble love.

With wave upon wave,

it’s presence rises within us

each wave larger than the last.

So when I take your hand there is a recognition,

something in you is taken apart

but what is removed only lets you see more clearly

as that sacred fire burns brighter and brighter in our hearts.

It is this way because I knew you then

at the moment when the clock moved past the zero hour and into eternity.

All of this makes us part of the other,

Another you—we are wedded to the All.

Awake, you cannot escape the inevitability of this truth

it rings through every cell,

a juicy revelation

and gift waiting for each of us there…

We no longer need to tremble in fear like our father’s and mothers did

because now we are ready…

Step into the Light soul sister and brother,

just step into it.

It will remove your cross of shame,

sadness,

that lonely feeling inside of you…

this knowing, this remembering, will heal all of that in you.

I will wait for you there

in that moment when it becomes plain

and that smile parts your lips and you remember what you forgot.
