I could have lived on any cosmic orb,
in any species’ fleshly form,
when I in silent stillness lay,
my life a willing sacrifice…
—I offered it to the ‘fire’ of God’s great Love—
that cleansing, enlightening, enlivening Energy—
that ‘fire’ of God’s great Love.
I could have lived on any alien world,
in any body however strange,
when I in silent stillness heard
the God of all Creation say…
—I AM the UNIVERSE—
and in the power of those few words
of all-encompassing Oneness
I know the Peace and Joy of Grace.
