Take off your clothes
and sit nakedly
before the naked Presence of God.
Take off the clothes of self-blame,
the familiar habits of fear and shame.
Allow the fountain to erupt
from the deep core of your
opening heart.
Laugh in the sweet surge of it.
Go ahead.
God laughs in you
as shadows whiff away
in this peace of pure fire;
this spill of Love’s river;
this clean breath of freedom.

Inspired by sayings of Jesus in the Gospel of Thomas.

    Beautiful write. Yes to set ourselves free …

  • Thanks Betty. Yes… in a real way we have created our own bondages through our interpretations of our experiences as well as trauma energy that was not allowed to move all the way through us. So… we are not victims. We can uncreate what we have created and create new ideas, new beliefs… and with them, new awareness and emotions.
