Our task . . .
Is to prepare a Vessel to be filled,
And not . . .
To fill an imagined vessel with what we dream it has been prepared for.
The former begins by the light of inner work, fueled by an awakening faith.
The latter has its beginning in the darkness of spiritual sleep; its inertia sustained by the machinations of self-centered considerations.
The New Vessel is built to house all that is Eternal.
The imagined vessel holds nothing but the content of its own empty dreams.
The evidence of these Truths . . .
Is unseen by eyes blinded by their intoxication for the wine of this world.
But for those with eyes to see . . .
The same invisible testimony induces a deep spiritual sobriety within which the willing soul is prepared for a taste of a Wine bottled just for her at the beginning of Time.
