Being Salt

Sophia seasoning
Pungent Prudent Power
Preserves us from corruption
Gives flavour to our life
Being Salt

The human mine
Where salt is found in abundance
Brine-ground for intelligence
In pursuit of excellence
In image and likeness

And even when life drains us
And our earthiness
Reveals our weakness
We are found to be worthy
Of Life's gifts
Like the seas and ocean waters
Forever plentiful
In the sharing of our precious multifarious
The service and the sacrifice

God's Breath blown upon us
Seasoning the earth
Beloved in God's eyes
Enriching our human worth
Being Salt

Being Light

To shine
Drawing from the Source
Flash perceptions
Light from Light
Word of God
The Promise
Being Light

To absorb
Divine enlightenment
Energy radiance
Glowing from within
The burning crucible
The eternal flame

To fall
Beacon of love
On those around us

To animate the spirit
Ignite the heart
God in me at work in us:

Potent effectiveness
Power of lightness
Measure of mind's illumination
Grounded from diversions
A lightyear's six trillion miles
A lifetime
To come into being
Being Light
