In the place Inbetween
I hear the hush of whispers. They are calling to me, beckoning me,
as they have before, and will again. For a moment I am afraid. The
voices tempt me with promises I know they will not keep. They tell
me I am not strong enough to break away from their grip. But they
are pulling me from both sides -- towards a reality I fear and a wish
for which I long.
But my hand is tightly
clasped in Maya's hand, and she leads me through the darkness in and
out of the Inbetween. We step together into the light of lives I know
I have lived or have yet to dream. But each glimpse is not the same
as seen with mortal eyes. For I see how life and Inbetween are joined.
Underneath the day to day there is a battle waging that continues
on Inbetween, before and after the cradle and the grave.
Maya holds my hand tightly
as we run from one life to the next, and all around there are angels
and demons, nudging and promising our hopes and longings. And we reach
and we fall and we rise and we see not the underlying Plan. And the
battle between good and evil, darkness and light, rages on, through
time and beyond time towards the final battle that will decide humanity's
Their whispering voices
reach out to me as I journey from life to life. In the InBetween the
voices thunder in laughter and in tears. But Maya leads me on, racing
in and out through the darkness to the dawn and Beyond delivering
me into that which is neither here nor there.
"Maya," I whisper, in
that place where I look out forever on all that has ever been or will
be, or has ever been wished or dreamed. But Maya is not there. I am
alone in this forever moment. I am filled with a deep and total sense
of awe and love for all. I am complete.
I know that this moment
will pass, but my heart is no longer full of questions. I don't know
whether any of what I have seen is True. Whether I will return to
one of the lives I have tasted or whether I am destined to walk them
all. Whether there is a battle of good and evil raging beyond our
perceptions, or whether good and evil are merely our own inventions.
Whether it is I who has created all the destinies I shall lead, or
if there something more, yet unseen. Or whether there is nothing there
at all, no Plan, no eternity, just the moment I am in.
The questions and the
answers are all around me, everywhere. And yet there is only love,
and in this moment all that matters is this moment.
