Today I stood alone and watched the rising tide…
The sea was quiet and very still, and then the motion of the ocean changed and brought steep waves to crash on shore.

When the waters receded, shells and sea smoothed glass and God’s creatures graced my path, tickling and amazing me at natures knowledge of degrees.

And the tide still rises, as the moon shines upon me, a light beckoning, and causing the ocean to expand and allow me to see all that is past and all that is yet to be, learning life’s lessons, through waves of history…

I am assured that Maat is the reason that things are, and the means by which they continue to be. It is the voice of divine imperative that at once reigns over this world and promises just reward in the next...promising a hereafter, a heaven I chose to believe...just as a rising tide is eminent, so too is this...this life I live, and one day to leave…
