At Shavout, the Angels Came

clouds reflected in the sea
At Shavuot, the Angels ask
Have you forgotten why you are here?
Have you forgotten the dance?
Are you hiding behind closed doors?
Will you allow the Majestic doors of your heart
to open to the Torah of your life,
to accept the innate goodness within?
Are you willing to live in the Mystery
of Creation, of our Creation?
At Shavuot, The Angels said –
Take the necessary steps to reach up into Sinai,
to the spaces, to those places that are beyond the small self.
In goodness may you travel up your desert mountains and
swim down into the waters of your life, to do the work,
to receive what is offered-
When you open the Majestic doors of your heart
behind those doors you will
travel on your path into the Mystery
where the desert mountains become level
where the seas are calm.
You will find that is where the Promised land resides.
Come to the dance, be the dance.
