The Will of God

“Don’t worry,” the young one said,

“I’m getting to you by the labyrinth.”

 

There is a lesson in these words –

I want to be told, what to do,

to be clear on my directions;

but as I walk life’s labyrinth,

it is clear that is not the case.

 

So, these words teach and assure me –

The way is cooperation

with many twists and reversals.

The labyrinth is not a path;

it is a way through to oneness.

 

We are not alone on the walk;

we share with many travelers.

Sometimes we wait; sometimes they wait.

Sometimes we clear the way for them;

and, sometimes they show us the way.

 

We cannot change where we have been

or worry where we are going.

Like the wind, we are God’s presence –

sometimes gentle and merciful;

and, sometimes strong and reckoning.

 

So the young one’s promise rings true –

God does not tell me what to do,

and yet, Her directions are clear;

“Be happy,” and “Be not afraid,”

this is the way to Her in the labyrinth.
