Thursday was Maunday Thursday, we had a pot luck
at church and then read the bible about Christ
from Gethsemeny to Pontius Pilate.
and followed the Christ candle into the sanctuary.
I missed the Good Friday because I had to get
up at three to be on vigil at four and
then I didn’t see the people show up for Five
so I sat another hour in the chapel where
they had a laberynth that I walked on to
speak to my mother, she’s always in the center.
Then I wrote some thoughts on the first station,
Looked in three mirrors for how I was made in God’s image on the second station, and
I wrote that I was like God on my head where my brain was, on my feet where I walk, on my tummy where i eat, on my back where my backbone is and inside where my soul is.
stuck magnetic words on the board to make a poem,
I don’t remember what.
I prayed for my family and friends, especially Teri who lost her girlfriend last week.
I tried to meditate, but that didn’t take.
I had meditated yesterday at home and fell down a big deep hole
where I found a carrousel that was full of deer, only to find a deer smashed on the road to church. Why deer? Deer is one of my main totems,
animal spirits, and its wisdom includes: Gentleness in word, thought and touch; ability to listen; Grace and appreciation for the beauty of balance; Understanding of what’s necessary for survival; power of gratitude and giving; Ability to sacrifice for the higher good; Connection to the woodland goddess; alternative paths to a goal.
SinceI have joined this church I feel like I’m on a spiritual path. You?
Tomorrow’s Easter and Im going to celebrate the Resurrection.
