Creation’s gentleness is all I see.
I have indeed misunderstood the world, because I laid my sins on it and saw them looking back at me. How fierce they seemed! And how deceived was I to think that what I feared was in the world, instead of in my mind alone. Today I see the world in the celestial gentleness with which creation shines. There is no fear in it. Let no appearance of my sins obscure the light of Heaven shining on the world. What is reflected there is in God’s Mind. The images I see reflect my thoughts. Yet is my mind at one with God’s. And so I can perceive creation’s gentleness.
The sun is shining. It looks like its going to be a beautiful day. The leaves on the tree outside my bedroom window are showing hints of shifting shades to welcome the official move to autumn. My head is still a little fuzzy from the excitement of the last couple of days. I can still picture the grace and power of the Jamaica dancers from yesterday’s performance.
I have Jamaican folk songs to learn, and my piece for tonight’s performance to practice but I am in a most beautiful and serene place, and can honestly say that I perceive creation’s gentleness in my life.
