God Falls In

sunset rocks and water

By Martha Beck: “A Jewish friend told me this story: A man asks his rabbi, ‘Why does God write the law on our hearts? Why not in our hearts? It’s the inside of my heart that needs God.’

The rabbi answered, ‘God never forces anything into a human heart. He writes the word on our hearts so that when our hearts break, God falls in.’

Whatever you hold sacred, you’ll find that an unguarded broken heart is the ideal instrument for absorbing it.”

Last night, as I was sleeping,

I dreamt–marvelous error!–

that a spring was breaking

out in my heart.

I said: Along which secret aqueduct,

Oh water, are you coming to me,

water of a new life

that I have never drunk?

Last night, as I was sleeping

I dreamt–marvelous error!–

that I had a beehive

here inside my heart.

And the golden bees

were making white combs

and sweet honey

from my old failures.

Last night, as I was sleeping,

I dreamt–marvelous error!–

that a fiery sun was giving

light inside my heart.

It was fiery because I felt

warmth as from a hearth,

and sun because it gave light

and brought tears to my eyes

Last night, as I was sleeping,

I dreamt–marvelous error!–

that it was God I had

here inside my heart.

~Antonio Machado

It doesn’t interest me

if there is one God

or many Gods.

I want to know

if you belong or

feel abandoned.

If you know despair

or can see it in others.

I want to know

if you are prepared

to live in the world

with its harsh need

to change you.

If you can look back with firm eyes

saying this is where I stand.

I want to know

if you know how to melt into

that fierce heat of living

falling toward

the center of your longing.

I want to know

if you are willing to live,

day by day,

with the consequence of love

and the bitter unwanted passion

of your sure defeat.

I have heard,

in that fierce embrace,

even the gods

speak of God.

“What is grace?” I asked God.

And He said,

“All that happens.”

Then He added,

when I looked perplexed,

“Could not lovers say

that every moment in their Beloved’s arms

was grace?”

“Existence is my arms,

though  I well understand

how one can turn away from me


the heart has wisdom.”

~Saint John of the Cross

My Most Important Relationship Is With My Source…


There is no relationship of greater importance to achieve

than the relationship between you,

in your physical body,

right here and now,

and the Soul/Source/God

from which you have come.

If you tend to that relationship,

first and foremost,

you will then, and only then,

have the stable footing to proceed

into other relationships.

Your relationship with your own body;

your relationship with money;

your relationship with your parents,



the people you work with,

your government,

your world . . .

will all fall swiftly and easily

into alignment

once you tend to this

fundamental primary relationship
