Embracing Ultimate Reality

Embracing Ultimate Reality

To embrace the All in All
Is having an appreciation
Of Our Creator’s manifestations 
The heavenly bodies - the sun, moon,
And stars, known and unknown planets
Traversing the sky is phenomenal 
The trees, plants, oceans, rivers,
Streams, mountains, hills and valleys
Speak in their own language
While buffeted by the wind 
So are the seasons – spring,
Summer, autumn, and winter
With their distinct moods 
Sometimes it’s calm, serene, and glorious
Occasionally there are hurricanes,
Earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, and forest fires

But birds, reptiles, fishes, and animals of all sorts
Inhabit the earth in the air, land, and sea 
They breed, feed, and live in this Reality 
And these creatures are provided for by nature 
People breathe fresh air, pick fruits,
Feast on delicious delicacies, drink refreshing water
Build cozy houses with the wood of  trees,
Light fires to cook their meals,
And dress warmly
In the winter months with nature’s bounty.

These manifestations are only a part
Of the Eternal Essence
That’s within, above, below, and around us 
To personalize this Reality is a metaphor. 
S/he’s omniscient, omnipresent,
Omnipotent, immanent, and transcendent 
No words can adequately describe
The sum of this all-encompassing nature

“Ever living Creator, help us to appreciate nature in all its abundance.  Let us persevere in being good stewards of planet earth.”
