According to the teachings, I am already That
which I’ve been trying to become.
What is there to do? Where is there to go?
My prayers, studies; musings, meditations
exposed as indulgences, deeply rooted in fear;
enablers in my lack of trust; my refusal
to let go of the illusory reins;
the false assurance that there’s more for me
to do than succumb to God’s authority.
But, this is where I am on the playing board;
these are my appointed rounds;
time is an illusion and God’s game
is the only one in town.
Each piece moves per His Whim
and He is on every side. How can I lose?
Though it affords me no comfort, I take it on faith –
I am secure, already where I set out to be;
where I always was and always will be.
O child of God, you will have won the game
when you stop tying yourself in knots.
