Nothing Else Matters

There is a divine nostalgia that moves the soul outward to find itself in the world. There is a subtle way of uncovering the soul of ourselves within heart vision. It is seeing the love of our child self as we emerge in love's reality.

The nostalgia of the soul is a yearning to be so visible in the world that only the soul itself can be seen within it. This is a remembrance of how the sun was created to rise and set in each being, that the world could turn around One heart.

The child of love seeks its sacred inheritance in the birth of itself, and claims nothing but its original face. It knows that to be the eye of God it must live free of the appearance of form, while loving the form as the dress of its existence. Only children can make love-play like this. Playing in a doll's house or pirate's den, knowing that the tales they tell are love stories shared together for the soul's escape to wonder.

Each moment we are dressed into creation, that we might cloth the world with fresh garments. Just as a child will make-believe by dressing up in whimsical clothes to enact a scene, so the child of love imagines its playground the home of itself also. It can never be orphaned from its reality, for it has made the world the house of its love. Knowing nothing else matters.

The home of Holiness
is the Love you allow yourself to be.
Forget about being here
and not being here.
Of being homeless,
or journeying home.
Turn your heart
to loving the world into being
in every moment of awareness,
and you shall return to God
what has always been.
