Invocation


A miracle is the wholehearted invocation
of the Divine, combined with suspension
of all disbelief
Allowing the Other World to
Shatter and reconstitute this world.

Through Invocation, the dead are raised
and the blind see again.
Invocation is how the multitudes of the hungry are fed
and all good deeds come to full fruit.

Brothers and sisters, let us not be like little children
and invoke our puny ego self
or that of our colleagues
when so much more is waiting to be called forth.
Let us resort instead to the full power of our Creator

Invocation is surrender to the Divine Will
allowing your flesh to be the Altar on which
The Will of the Holy One Reigns

This is why the Ancients say the Holy Ones
are Hollow Bones.
