Tempering hammer

Chris M wrote, "Similarly, whatever guides the universe -- whether God is singing each present moment into being...." What a breathtaking metaphor: I can picture God singing the spirit into the first human, God's singing spirit filling Jesus at baptism, and God singing in my own heart. Right now that singing may be more like the insistent and uncertain "Flight into Egypt" (in Hector Berlioz' L'enfance du Christ), but it is still present.

The tempering hammer is swinging...what is it Thee is asking me for? I hear Thee, but I do not understand the message.

Equality, simplicity, peace. When in doubt, my love, always go back to the beginning. You will find your answer there.
