behold. it’s an imperative to stop and look. sometimes we need that, don’t we? to stop and look? sometimes i need to just behold. to stop running at breakneck pace, and to pay attention to the rhythm of my breath, to the beating hearts are all around me, and to the presence of the holy everywhere. “behold, i stand at the door and knock.” but i’m too busy to notice most of the time.
and sometimes we need to stop and see what we are really doing. i need to hear what the voice on the other side of the door is saying: hello? you’ve been busy following your own agenda. you’ve been busy reading the news and getting angry, or depressed, or numb. you’ve been trying to distract yourself. you’ve been demonizing the other, even though you aren’t even listening. behold. look and see what weapons you are really holding. behold. are you making anything at all? or just destroying? behold, i stand at the door and knock. but to answer you’re going to have to put down your weapons and your prejudices. you’re going to have to sit down for a spell and breathe. you’re going to have to stop arguing, and start listening. behold.
