Heaven 57

matisse 5How do you feel?

I feel as if I have no idea what I am doing, but I am not deeply bothered by it, only somewhat bothered by it, so I’m okay.

I don’t know why we’re talking heaven today, but I know I don’t believe in later heaven, only now heaven.  The poem doesn’t exactly jibe with that, my apologies.

Deep spiritual thought:

No heaven can come to us unless our hearts find rest in it today.  Take heaven!

No peace lies in the future which is not hidden in this present little instant.  Take peace!

-Fra Giovanni Giocondo

Something beautiful:

(This is our new poem on the subway right now.)

Heaven

It will be the past

and we’ll live there together.

Not as it was to live

but as it is remembered.

It will be the past.

We’ll all go back together.

Everyone we ever loved,

and lost, and must remember.

It will be the past,

And it will last forever.

-Patrick Phillips
