A meditation based upon Psalm 55

Sometimes it feels like the Divine is playing Hide-and-Seek with me

and I want to cry “Olly, olly, oxen free”

Do you know what that means?

It’s from the German “Alle, alle auch sind frei"

Which means, "Everyone, everyone also is free"

Yep, that’s it. I’m calling out to you, Divine, to be free,

for both of us to be free

out in the open, where we can both be seen and heard

Then I won’t have to endure my heart’s Whirling Dervish

Then I can cease running around trying to find you in your hiding place

We can join hands and skip along together

until we find the perfect camping spot

out in the wilderness

where there is no violence or sorrow

no greed or oppression

There we will watch sunrises and sunsets together

while I tell you everything

and sing to you, your favorite songs

Then, I will, once more, know peace
