The scriptures are a priceless gift,
But sometimes we need a break from our studies.
Discipline, fasting and meditation
Can take you very far indeed,
But life isn’t all about solemn routine.
God isn’t confined to dusty tomes
And silent temples…
Free and formless like the wind;
Wild as a dancing flame;
Like buds in Springtime bursting
Here and there and everywhere;
With spontaneous joy and magic
Like a child’s laughter.
