Today is Sunday and I’d like to wish all of you such a Sunday with all the Stillness of your Hearts creating yourselves as a Retreat of Stillness and Light to restore your spiritual strength for the coming week.
These verses I wrote already 1992 and rereading these now, I thought with amaze that they displayed such deep spiritual wisdom 20 years ago – when time around me was not mature enough to grasp these inner knowledge. At that time I was under some huge stress and a full impact of a professional changing life ..let’s put in more pictorial way:
I felt like being in a melting pot of change boiling up all hidden and secret human vices coming plainly to the surface around me in my professional life. At that time I drew myself more and more into my inner spiritual core (meditating even in lunch-breaks) and whenever I was free and so much dwelling in myself – words and sentences came up to my mind and I had to write them down. This carried me through all this time of great upheaval and turmoiled evil around me.
Now I know, I was carried and protected by my guardians from above. So I wrote many verses and little articles in these times.
As I came across these verses again today I translated some of them and should like to share them with you for this very day:
Stille in meinem Herzen
Stille, es kommt ein Wehen auf,
und all Blätter im Baum stimmen mit ein.
Es rauscht hervor ein ewiger Gesang,
sei leise, dann hörst auch du diesen Dank:
“Eines sind wir alle und gehören IHM allein,:
das Wunder des Lichtes ward uns verlieh’n,
es wird wieder leuchten, wenn wir uns verzieh’n.”
Dann bin ich Blatt im Baum
und Blume im See,
ein Halm auf der Wiese
und Kristallicht im Schnee…..
(Alles ist ruhig . Alles wird still, weiss ich erst. was Gott mit mir will!)
Stillness in my Heart
Be still. there is a gentle wind from far
and all the leaves are joining in the song –
be still and and grace upon you will make you
listen to their never-ending thankful choir:
“We are all one and belong alone to HIM
endowed with miracles of light
from his eternal Might
will make us shine again – once
we have forgiven ourselves’ sin.”
And then again:
I am that leaf in a tree
and bloom in the sea,
a weed in the meadow,
crystal shine in the snow.
(All is quiet. All is still. Then I know more for me in his Will.)
