“there is that is…”

“THERE IS THAT IS

And now, luv:

Be careless a little!

Dawdle somewhat.

Even drift.

There is something waiting

to announce itself.

But how can it appear?

How be heard–

when, without let-up,

stormed like this,

as if heaven’s got

by hammering at it?

None can besiege

what’s given.

Ah, come–

let wonderment in!

Allow for gifts.”

Doris Peel: Selected Poems 1955-1975

“Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” Luke 17:21

“‘The kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the
violent take it by force!’ said Jesus. Therefore are
its spiritual gates not captured, nor its golden streets
invaded.

We recognize this kingdom, the reign of harmony
within us, by an unselfish affection or love, for this is the
pledge of divine good and the insignia of heaven.” Mary Baker Eddy, Retrospection and Introspection
