Nothing Can Hurt You


innocent beliefs
have never hurt you

they served their purpose
and were summarily dropped
exactly now

they may be visiting again

no worries

there may be bruising
but no scars

there may be raindrops
but no storm damage

allow

allow

let the waters flow
let the knots get tighter

if they must

this is not a problem
this is not a danger
whatsoever

there is nothing more powerful
more all encompassing
all seeing
all knowing
more compassionate or
exploding in love

than you

ever present
always here
always now
always

all ways

nothing but you

nothing but you

Beautiful. Hope Julian sees it.

Yes, beautiful. I love the imagery - the idea that we are like the earth that soaks up the rain - the ground of being. We think the earth is so fragile, but it is only that which lives upon it that is vulnerable.

It is only when the waters flow and the knots get tighter that you see how plainly you are other than they - or you don't see it but something does. Why else would the bird sing in her little tree while a hundred yards away all kinds of carnage is going on in the battlefield of human life. The quiet presence shares the joke with her.
Thanks Mary, there is such plain seeing here. Your marshes are filled with fresh water.
