I sit in the movie theater, events unfolding before me.
Wildfires, romance, even a robbery caper.
It doesn’t really matter what happens…
None of it alters the me snug in my seat.
These images playing on the screen are merely informers.
They show me how to know the true Essence more deeply.
Yes, they help me and at times hurt me,
but they cannot alter the fact of me.
I hold steady in their presence,
take in the needed teaching,
keep the Beloved close,
while each experience enriches me,
reaffirms my own inner insistence that I am soul,
eternal, all powerful—
a divine being.
And when the credits roll,
I see that this whole blockbuster—
the actors, the theater, the town, country, and globe in which it plays—
are all God,
