Today is October 24, 2014. I am alive and well.

Excerpt from my work in progress. I have not come up with a title yet.

I believe I experience meditation when I write or make art. These two things take me out of myself, which is a good place to be to meditate. I refer to it as active meditation, as getting into the zone. When writing, all that exists are letters weaved to gather to create something that wasn’t there five minutes ago. Words become the wings of God, paragraphs, the feet, the page the mind, and the chapter the heart. I have given God a human persona. I believe God can take any form. God can be a mass of electrons at rest. God can exist in a handshake.

The soul of God shows up if I write authentically. I feel like a vessel of something I don’t understand, but care to know.

“I pray for knowledge of His will for me and the power to carry it out.” I know when I’m on track because there is a certain peace that washes through me. A calm that I can’t manifest on my own.

    Your line about God taking any form reminds me of an old tv series we enjoyed, Joan of Arcadia. I’ll warn you that while it is a great show, they weren’t given the chance to end it well when they were cancelled so it just sort of stops which is a bummer. But God took the form of various people to speak to a high school girl named Joan. It was a cool show with interesting plots and messages. I was very sorry it was cancelled.
