Temples

Listen, darling girl, to the words I give you now.

These boxes you try to build around Me will never contain Me –
I am more than your mind can grasp.
I will wear a thousand faces, come to you with a thousand names
if need be, if it will make you see.
We are not strangers, you and I –
why then must you keep yourself from Me?

Listen to the words whispered in your heart,
listen to the love burning through your veins,
listen to the birdsong as the sun now rises and remember Me.
I am here, as I have always been,
but you will not see Me.

I have no temples in this world but those built
in the hearts of My Lovers.
The ground is warm beneath My feet,
the wind dances through My fingers,
and I have nowhere but your hearts.

Make a home of your heart, for Me.

  1. Dear gods, They tell me this All. The. Time. Thank you for putting it down so clearly for Them.

    “I will wear a thousand faces, come to you with a thousand names
    if need be, if it will make you see.
    We are not strangers, you and I –”

    “Remember?”

    It grieves Them so much when They See we don’t Remember.
    It must be a lot like having a lover with Alzheimers. So beautiful, but so sad.
    I really must try harder to Remember.
