Point of Pure Truth

At center of our being
A point of nothingness
Untouched by sins illusions
Of pure truth to confess

Belonging all to God
Not at our disposal
Life which God disposes
Not of our proposals

Point of nothingness
Simple poverty
That of God in us
One of pure glory

His name inscribed in us
As our indigence
Poverty and son-ship
One of our dependence

Diamond of the pure
Blazing unseen bright
Within everybody
Billion points of light

If only we could see
Points of light together
Cruelty and darkness
Vanish here forever

No program for the seeing
Given as it here
But the gate of heaven
Is found every-where

(Based upon words by Thomas Merton)
