Claiming You

In Exodus on January 30, 2012 at 8:00 am

I look in darkness
and see others groping on
to what they need most.

They all turn aside
for one reason or other.
I am no better.

After all, I am
still here, looking in darkness,
following them home.

Parsha Beshalach

God led them not by the way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said: ‘Lest peradventure the people repent when they see war, and they return to Egypt.’

Exodus 13.17

Why would freed slaves so easily decide to return to the land of their captivity so soon after being freed?  How often have you done something and not done it?  How often has something felt so near yet so far?  How often have you had to learn things the heard way?

Are you ready are you to be you?

As near as it might seem, is the path to you always clear?
