Darling, Who Are You?
Who am I in a sea of galaxies?
Who am I in the presence of raging waters?
Who am I in the absence of lights and perfections?
Who am I in a world of deceptions and assertions?
Who am I in the face of injustices?
Who am I in the face of maltreatment?
Who am I in secret; in the dark of night?
Who am I in the heart and streets of Caracas?
Who am I in the company of the affluent?
Who am I in the praise of men?
Who am I in the midst of wolves in sheep’s clothing?
Who am I with the imprint of a darling lover?
Who am I when I am filled on every side?
Who am I when I have rest on every side?
Who am I when the tempests roar and the billows roll?
Who am I when the eyes of men cease to linger on me for a moment?
Who am I when a sukkah and a shuka is all I own?
Who am I when all is said and done?
Who am I when the curtains fold and the show is over?
Who am I when there is nothing to show for my life but my heart only?
What remains of me in the end?
Who am I?
I know who I am:
I am in danger of self-deception every moment.
Lord Jesus, only make me who You are.
Okay… Let’s just be honest, whenever most people hear anything about religion, their first reaction and instinct is probably to cringe or brush off the whole matter entirely.
Why? Most likely because it is a subject that is associated with extreme cases of fanaticism, it brings about a lot of conflicts and controversies, and even offends easily.
Religion is famously known for: manipulation, stagnation, repression, ignorance, bigotry and is too often a threat to liberty. And rightly so. I do agree. With that said, I recommend you to read two of my posts as well as encourage you to do a personal, extensive, and honest research on your own regarding this matter. Why?
As intellectuals (critical thinkers), I believe we owe it to ourselves to interrogate, examine, and ask hard questions regarding matters touching on faith rather than choosing to ignore them or even worse— follow blind faith. Click here for the first post.
Who speaks the truth with regards to a genuine, sincere and true relationship with God? Is it Buddha? Muhammad? Jesus? Zoroaster? Confucius? Joseph Smith? Guru Nanak? Krishna? Among others? Find out on this second post:
My heart overflows with a goodly matter; I speak the things which I have made touching the king: My tongue is the pen of a ready writer. Psalms 45:1
