礼品之路 ( Lǐpǐn zhī lù ) – the Gift of Ingress

‘A right to enter.  A means of entering.  The act of going in.’

Along  礼品之路 we are reminded of Ingress.

Freely.

What one of the ancients call ‘access’.

‘We have peace with God through Christ’, he says.

Christ ‘through whom we also have had our access … into this grace in which we stand.’

The Gift.

The Way.

The Grace in which we stand.

His last breath.

‘And a darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour, the sun’s light failing: and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst’, the story is told.

Ingress.

Granted.

To all.

In a moment.

And I wonder when or how I lost my way?

Away?

From breathing my Origin’s presence?

Listening to the quiet whisper.

Our Origin, may you be known by all.

May you be the Source of Being.

The Sourceror.

Dawning in lives, from moment to moment.

May we receive You.

All of us.

May we receive from You.

Whatever we need, for this day, this moment.

All of us.

Bread.

Redemption.

Regeneration.

Becoming.

New.

Debtless.

So that we may be beings who write off debts & set others free.

In realm upon realm.

So that we may live from love.

Happiness.

And peace.

Deeply rooted.

In you.

‘Like a tree planted by the streams of water.’

Meditating on Your Being.

Commencing.

Every moment.

Atoned intimacy.

Along 礼品之路 ( Lǐpǐn zhī lù ), by (s)He who is the Way & the Gift.

Atoning.

And redeeming.

All, at once.

And all at once.

  1. “by (s)He who is the Way & the Gift.”
    … By using the (s), you are clearly not talking about Jesus Christ the Lord, Son (not daughter) of God and Son (not daughter) of Man. Yet Jesus clearly states the He is the Way. … Interesting.

    • Perhaps we now see in a clouded mirror? And one day, when we come face to face, we’ll see more clearly? For now, I believe we were created in image, which includes you, us. So perhaps thinking of our Origin one dimensionally is to reduce Divinity? I don’t know, Amy. If I’m excluded, because HE is not just MAN, then perhaps many more are excluded, because HE is JUST MAN? I believe our Origin includes. Isn’t that what Easter is about?

  2. I think that we are blessed with mortal view for now. I have no idea how to count the stars in the sky or how to understand eternity. My brain will not stretch that far, but somehow my spirit knows that there is an endless ocean of more to discover, later. For now we can choose to discover within these confines and, more than that, relate. Thank you for thinking T, it always blesses me.
