One of the essential paradoxes of Advent: that while we wait for God, we are with God all along ,that while we need to be reassured of God’s arrival, or the arrival of our homecoming, we are already at home. While we wait, we have to trust, to have faith, but it is God’s grace that gives us that faith. As with all spiritual knowledge, two things are true, and equally true, at once. The mind can’t grasp paradox; it is the knowledge of the soul.

I searched everywhere for love.
I knocked on every door
and turned over every stone.
But it was only until I returned home
that I found love
waiting for me.

One is in ‘Waiting’
Even after it’s over
Grief comes to stay
Never up for closure

There is no escape ever
One is always yearning
Grief envelops those
Left behind in ‘waiting’

‘Staying stuck’ in pain
Hiding deep in the heart
‘Let go’ ! Yes, but how
To make a new start

One has to live in the
Dark blind ‘Black-hole’
Until Light would grace
Rekindling a ‘Whole’
