Many definitions of Spirituality
use the word
of becoming whole
was limited and inadequate,
focusing on achieving
body and soul,
internal and external,
mind and heart.
I am learning
Integration is not simply about
achieving a balance,
but truly about
making all things about me
Though this may be a lifelong process
requiring steps I do not yet know
and may not understand,
some fruits of becoming One
are already being revealed to me.
In moving beyond
a critical balance of mind and heart,
achieved only late in my life,
to making them One,
my mind is enriched, more open, accepting, flexible,
and my heart is enriched, more specific, more intelligent.
In moving beyond a simple respect for Creation
to Being One with Creation,
my whole perspective in life changes.
I now see that
my Spiritual Growth entails Integration entails
Being in Love,
Making All Things One.
