Something To Give Back

Here is my deepest and most pleasing secret;
I have something to give back
to the Creator.

It is no material thing, this offering,
but the emanation of my being,
a wordless rejoicing, spirit giving back to spirit,
my life as heart-felt offering.
What I give is taken in with
such unquestioning acceptance,
a receptivity so vast that I
want to pour myself out until
nothing more of me is left, but
instead of being empty,
again and then again I overflow
with radiance and awe.

I thought I had to wrestle
what I needed from the
world, when really what I
wanted most was to give
myself to wholeness;
essence merged and
blending back again in an
unending circuit of energy.

This circular sacrament of
giving and receiving is
complete unto itself, a devotional
prayer in motion offered from
the chalice of my soul.
