The Place We Need to Be (Shadows of Sinai)

If we gather those slights together, those prejudices we recall, if we gather one together to two and then three more, if we lose inhibition and recognize narcissism as unbelief. If we enter faultless relationships, a man, a woman, a man, a man, a woman, a woman, a sacred obligation, a place to be. If we walk to the precipice, and know it holds the key, if we work without owing, without guilt, without doubt of labor done in need. If we bless, without reciprocity, if we feed without the need of charity, if we love, without faith, or need of priority, if we fall, in the shadows of Sinai, then we are at the place we need to be.

If we hike a jagged lifeline, and give sight for those left blind, if were honest in competition, with those who are lost behind. If we live our holy mitzvah, and cleanse our cluttered mind, if we receive all our failures, and forgive those who are unkind, if we live beyond tomorrow, after living just today. If we touch our hallowed children with a blessing every day, if we believe them before all others, when they do not go astray, if we ask G-D to trust us and he listens while we pray. If we delve to find the goodness in the challenge of our day, if we run for such a long hard race, and we still have such a need, if we fall in the shadows of Sinai, then we are at the place we need to be.

If we enter troubled water without guilt, and faultless free, if we bare ourselves no malice, while were sheltered with no need, if were born sacred from the womb, our eyes glazed with what we see. If we taste, if we own, if we do, if we laugh, if we dance, if we hug, if we believe, if we kiss, if we love, if we turn and fly alien free from this known world, if we fall in the shadows of Sinai, then we are at the place we need to be.

When my glory passes by, I will put you inside a crevice in the rock and cover you with my hand, until I have passed by. Exodus 33:22 – – 7.22.2014 – דָּנִיֵּאל
