New Year Thought
Many a mantra has us chanting, "I am."
by Richard Jarboe
Over and over we chant, "I am, I am, I am.
My question is, "I am what? I am who? "
They say the universe is an infinite container,
And they say I'm contained, and I'm finite,
Maybe the more accurate chant should be, "I have."
I have movement. I have love in this world and that,
I have family, I have grace given me by the creator.
So if the creator is infinite,
And I'm what God's given me,
It stands to reason I'm infinite?
Not because of what I am,
But because of what I have.
I have an Infinite spirit bestowed upon me.
Happy New Year.
