Easter Sunday 2012
by Scott Utley
"I am only human. My voice is powerful so I never shout.
We share many of the same thoughts. We come from the same womb.
The source of all our inspiration never cries, but laughs a lot."
"If you abort a child whose heart has begun to beat,
then that is murder. If you have not, do not worry or force your views.
The Great Source of Our Belonging will see to a loving rectification.
If you have, do not worry, for I have seen the light of forgiveness
in the eyes of eternity. Your story must be told and your wisdom
must find its home, so speak your longing."
Sift through the Holy pages of The Word
and discards that which your heart says is untrue. I say, 'listen to your heart’;
for it is there I dwell forever. Everything I am is within you.
Go there now. Ask if these words I speak are not true.
Feel if what I tell you doesn’t resonate with the piercing sound of truth."
"Do not take it upon yourself to sit in judgment of your fellow man.
A man takes the life of one man, and then you punish him and take his life.
Who will punish you for that very same offense?
Compassion makes me happy. Forgiveness makes me high.
Be happy. It is your birthright to know joy forever.
When pain comes, and come it shall,
if only as a lark,
embrace it rather than run away.
You will never be able to hide. Sharpen your courage.
Be kind. Love life. Kiss the ground you walk on.
Take the path your heart desires.
This is my devout wish and hope and plan for you.
He smiled a smile of ecstasy as he turned
towards the rose-dusked sky and simply walked away.
