This discourse takes me back to the overwhelming impulse of my childhood which was to be one with the divine energy. This is how I related to God at that time although I was brought up by committed Christians. It was always more than a person for me. Listening to this again I found myself writing this poem:
I was born with a longing
To be one with the Divine.
All those mystic pathways
Led upwards
Like veins to my heart.
No teaching satisfied my questions
Until I was so weary of myself
I was ready to give up.
All those years spent
Finding myself
Only to realise
I must let go of Self
To be absorbed.
Now starts
The final long goodbye,
The letting go of a lifetime.
