‘The eagle’s eye’-It’s gaze the longing for union with god in the night of spirit; it’s gaze to express the unfulfilled desire of such a soul to be completely united to god; It’s gaze anguished with an unbearable desire for pure love; To lose itself with an all-consuming longing body, soul, and spirit in total self-surrender,
To the tender and all unconditional mercy of god living the feeling of powerlessness perhaps the most direct path to peace, the resolution of peace to the human drama and human dilemma; this, this perhaps is my ‘night’ – my art, my life, my faith, my eay in transforming grace to purify the habitual distractedness, the cultural conditioning and the spiritual pride to transforming-union, my life in christ to union one in god all in the goodness of time.
