Through the Looking Glass

So I sit here in the infectious waste, wasted effort, waste of time.
Wasting away my youth, my livelihood, my hopes and dreams,
How am I supposed to handle this?

(  *   *  )

Ok fine, I look up and I do see it,
A brilliant white ball of glass,
as massive as the sun,
telling me one message, one message, one message...

Holy freaking crap!
Way too bright man! Waaaay too bright..
Stain that glass with my sins, make it darker! the light! I can't...not right now.
I don't think I can handle this.

(  -   -  )

Ok fine, I look back down and stare at my reflections. 
Two arms, two legs, two eyes,
Multiplied by billions. 
Phew, that's better.
Keep my head down.
The devil's in the details, details, details. 
No one can see me anymore...not even you. 

(  *   *  )

These people are Heaven's messengers, all of them angels, but not to me. 
I overlook the obvious on a regular basis...I overlook love.
It's just sooooo much easier that way...
You tell me am I supposed to handle this?

(  0   0  )

Really? Why, who are all these people? 
Do they come from the ball of glass? 
Do I?
The glass, the stains, the light...
Why is it so bright?
Why is it so bright?
For the Love of God, why is it so freaking bright!

...oh wait...

Ok fine, have it your way.

    I get it, Yoni. It's a powerful light to absorb, so we taint it with our own fears. Thanks for sharing, Kim

    My apologies, I don't mean to confuse people. it's meant to be an internal struggle based on the urge to open my eyes and view the Love of God directly, which is the brightest and most intense love in the universe that any of us will ever experience. The struggle comes from not being able to cope with a love that intense by staining it with my sins so that it's not as bright. It's always me staining the glass, God would never do such a thing, nor can He. Or maybe I'm just losing my edge...

    I don't get it all, but sounds like the internal battle, going on. Thought provoking Yoni. Reminds me of "James 1:23", Excellent form, Sincerely, Moses

    Staring into the light and recognizing "heaven's messengers" can be a humbling experience, Yoni. But I know this is tongue in cheek for there is surely love in your great heart. Great write! You're bright! Love, Carolyn
