Exploring the meaning of life…

How did God create what has never been?

A Veiled Mist

When does time begin,
or end, for that matter?
Is it when our nostrils feel breath
or is it when a sperm penetrates the egg?

Life is but a vapor.
Ethereal, a veiled mist,
air that isn’t really there…
but it is life.
It is us.

How, then, did we begin?                                                 


When we were just cells
or nucleic acids?
Do we all have this
wisdom deep inside
the vapors of our

 What lurks below the layers
of our being?
A monster?
Or a perfect plan?

The answer is there.
I know it is.
I want it badly, too.

I will keep searching…

Have you ever read the first few verses in Genesis and wondered about its meaning?  “And the earth was without form and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.  And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” Genesis 1:2.  When I read that I think, “Wow!  I wonder what that looked like?”  It is one of the mysteries of Genesis for me.  The earth was without form and void, but yet it existed in some manner which seemed to include water.  Maybe you are one of the lucky ones who can read this and just go to the next verse.  But I am not so lucky.  I want to understand this first so I can move on, but unfortunately, we are not offered any more information about this.  This is how we began and yet it offers very few clues to the actual moment or how it came to be, how WE came to be.  So I am still searching…what are your thoughts?

Have a happy journey!                                     

Our brilliant beginning?
