Aspects of God

God of our inmost selves
and of the stars from which we came;

who is both the core of our being
and the transcendent mystery;

of whom there is no need of proof,
because we are here to ask the question;

to whom all true religion points, but whom no religion can ever truly comprehend;

who is the truth behind the sacred myths,
but whose whole truth
no myth can capture, however sacred;

who inspires the words of prophets and poets,
but who cannot be defined in words alone;

whose presence we sense where there is love,
but which we lose where there is hatred;

God of our hearts,
we turn to you in the communion of silence…

God of the silence –
in ourselves, in this sacred place,
and in the cosmic void,
bless us in our quietness and our tumult,
in our striving and our rest.
