The Oasis thrives within us, friend. It is a place replete with possibility. Hungry hearts come here to rest, to seek solace and comfort, and to bask in its wisdom. All of life’s opposites are reconciled here.
There are not opposites anymore. They come here to be diluted and to dissolve into the nothingness of pure being.
An absence of hurt, loss and heartache, that is the oasis we seek. It is where God waits patiently to greet us, to take us homeward again, and to bring us peace. God is there always, and he waits patiently while we aimlessly flounder, trying to prove our worth.
God waits for us in that peaceful centre where all of life’s hurts are for naught. They are non-existent, non-material and totally undeserving of all the attention we shower them with. They are simply non-entities.
We are the source of these traumas and God is their dissolution. We are their perpetrators until we learn to be their conciliators.
We are the reason Love exercises its willingness to play in our jungles, those mind-fields of inordinate activity where justice finally prevails. Once we are reconciled to our Lord, we are happy again.
We are comforted to see the self-created angel of darkness dissolve into the light. We are comforted with the advance of this light into our lives. Light and dark – opposites? Perhaps! Friends also? Absolutely!
We are free again as the Lord has arrived. That is the oasis we seek. The Lord of all Nations at home in our hearts, and we in His. Let us be true to ourselves for these purposes.
