In the Roar of Your Waterfalls
Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your breakers and your waves have swept over me. ~Psalm 42:7
There are waterfalls roaring in the world right now. Hatred, terror, murder, rage–so much fighting, so many enemies, so much suffering, so much....
Too much. Breakers and waves sweep over the shores of all nations. We are overwhelmed.
Viktor Frankl wrote his book Man’s Search for Meaning after surviving the Holocaust in a Nazi concentration camp. What meaning would he find in today’s world?
A Course in Miracles says, “I could see peace instead of this.” Really? Where is peace?
In the deep. Peace is in the deep. Meaning is in the deep. Truth is in the deep. And love, too. Beneath the roar of the waterfalls, below the crashing breakers and sweeping waves, there is silence. And it calls to the silence in the deep of our souls, in the deep of all our souls.
And there, in the deep, all our souls answer as one.
