I bowed down to a god who said stand.
Looking directly in my eyes with the face of the one who collects souls they said touch your head at my feet only when you know me whole.
I have taken from you but will also give more than i take. Your gratitude goes only as far as you see it within yourself.
They said if you bow down, bow first to yourself because i am within you.
They said i need not know my greatness, it is you that questions.
It was you All along who wailed through the night not understanding my great plan for you.
I do not blame your blindness for there are many distractions that have been created to stray your gaze.
Now that you see me, can you see me everywhere?
Can you feel me inside of your bones and what lies past that?
Touch your head to the ground now and know that i do not judge you for i know you even when you know not yourself. When you know you, you shall also know me.
When you know me you shall know that we are not separate. You shall see that All is encompassing.
That death has looked you so young straight in the eye because i knew you could know me and not judge me.
I know you knew me, but i did not need your knowing.
It was you that thought you needed.
But i see now that you see.
Now you are free they said because i know when you bow to me you also kneel to the All in you.
God said i am of the greatness and the darkness, can you handle me so?
When you become witness we become one.
When you think you have been left alone, guess again for i do not leave they said.
I stay even if you choose to look the other way.
My embrace is mighty yet my voice echoes in the silence.
Walk gently on this earth god said. She is fragile within your survival.
Yet eternal as you.
But you choose now, when you bow.
To be blind or to know how it is All me and All you.
How you treat it, it treats you.
How you greet and what you steep shall sew and be what you see.
Do you see me for me? they asked
Because i see you for you.
And you are as perfect as i.
Bow now and leave judgement behind.
It is All as it should be.
Yet full of positive possibility .
