Day 104:  Love Witness

 

Day 104.

My heart is sad, inspired, awe struck, expanded—it’s full, gloriously full.

The service for my friend’s husband today was such a gift.  It was an honor to be there and to witness the incredible love he created with his wife, his daughter, his family, in his life and beyond.

Beautiful.  Just beautiful.

From the service…

The Alchemy of Love

You come to us
from another world

From beyond the stars
and void of space.
Transcendent, Pure,
Of unimaginable beauty,
Bringing with you
the essence of love

You transform all
who are touched by you.
Mundane concerns,
troubles and sorrows
dissolve in your presence,
Bringing joy
to ruler and ruled
to peasant and king

You bewilder us
with your grace.
All evils
transform into
goodness.

You are the master alchemist.

You light the fire of love
in earth and sky
in heart and soul
of every being.

Through your love
existence and nonexistence merge.
All opposites unite.
All that is profane
becomes sacred again.

Rumi
