Lord of hosts, ruler of the myriad houses

So many faces on this journey!

sad, grave

joyous, ecstatic, childlike, wise

frightening, comforting, familiar,

grotesque

~

and within this journey

seeking for the one

the one?

the one!

the one…

the lover

the true friend

the great master

the faithful servant

the one to serve

the one to destroy

the one to follow

~

and within this journey

there are those we pass without a thought

and those who catch our eye

only to vanish

and those who draw us in

and threaten to shatter us

which is the greatest gift

~

Lord of hosts, ruler of myriad houses

may I learn to receive everything that comes my way

as a gracious host

preparing

to one day receive you

~

Lord of hosts, ruler of myriad houses

may I recognize your signature

in the loved and loathed

in the plain and mundane

as in thunderous revelation

~

Lord of hosts, ruler of myriad houses

may I live every moment

with full awareness

and open, open, open

open so wide and so vast

and see so closely

that the infinite and infinitesimal

draw together

to prepare my heart

for eternity

~

And within this journey

there are the prayers

that are spoken

there are the prayers

that are silent

there are the prayers

that are lived, and sung,

and laughed, and danced,

and those typically get the best response

~

And within this journey

there are beautiful souls

that show us our own beauty

and even gratitude

is a gift from you

Lord of hosts, ruler of myriad houses
