Flowers and Bird Songs

An encounter with God, as the mystics have claimed, is not a gentle affair, filled with pretty flowers and chirping birds…and all the right words. An encounter with God is like being wakened by an earthquake…it shakes us to the very core of our being, crushes our false self. To confront the transcendental is to lose control and be filled with trepidation and awe. Nothing is the same…everything changes after an earthquake. God topples the false temples of our lives and when the dust settles God gives us the grace to rebuild on a firmer foundation. Yes, there are flowers, but thorns also. A genuine encounter with God is ineffable, beyond concepts, images, and words. Infinity and eternity take on clearer meaning, seem more real. Dualistic discourse becomes a thing of the past, replaced by mystical nonduality. All is One.
