Honoring Thomas's Narragansett Ancestor

 "I am done
with great things, large institutions,
big successes
and important people.

I am for
those sometimes glimpsed
eternal moral forces
that migrate soul to soul.

I am for
those spiritual fibers that reach like rootlets,
albeit in the dark.

I am for
the light of inner awareness
that seeks as water until absorbed.

I am for
spiritual practice that,
given sufficient surrender,
dissolves the densest monuments of mind
into the infinite wisdom of the heart.

I am for
remembering my being
as but one drop in an ocean of diversity
that contains All, connected forever in spiritual equality."

A Wholeness Quotation of Thomas Merton Brightman
a.k.a. Meeleensupeenkwail,
"He Who Bears the Gift of Tears"

Inspired by William James, January 1, 1998.
