The Sea of Eternity
Updated: Feb 13, 2019
I treasure hearing the praises, but I treasure even more, going beyond the music, beyond the noise, to where I can hear the silence all around me. For in the silence I can hear the angelic voices of praise and the melodies of heaven
Its as if I have leaped into the sea of eternity and I cannot rise above it because of it's depths and I am now lost and cannot find my direction. And all at once, the ways and desires of the world I have left don't matter anymore, because now the waters have permeated my body and have all of me, to where now I am submerged and have drowned in this sea of forever and now I can do nothing on my own, and this universal ocean takes me where it will.
It is no longer what I am, or what I will be, because I am; one with all and in all and all in me.
And now, as I look into His Loving Eyes and reach for the Glowing Hand that I see, I know that the slightest touch will drown me forever and I am not concerned, for this is where I belong.
And in the twinkling of an eye, I find myself taking a breath and here I am again, wading around in the shallow water of my soul. Ah, but I have tasted the eternal, if only for a moment and have experienced the drowning of my lower nature and I long to go back into the silence of the sea once again and experience forever, even if only for a moment.
