What is Grace?
'What is grace?' I asked God.
and He said 'All that happens.'
I looked perplexed and He added,
'Could not lovers say that every moment in their Beloveds arms was grace?
Existence is my arms,
but I can understand how one would turn away from me
until the heart has wisdom.'
The weight arrogance is such
that no bird could fly carrying it.
And the man who feels superior to others
that man cannot dance,
the real dance is when the soul takes God
into its arms
and you both fall onto your knees in gratitude,
a blessed gratitude for life.
Once i said to God, 'How do you teach us?'
He replied, 'If you were playing chess with one who
had infinite power and infinite knowledge
and wanted to make you
a master of the game,
where would all the chess pieces be at every moment?
Indeed, not only where he wanted them
but where all were best for your
and that is every situation
of one's life.'
