Honey & Mumford approach Psalm 46:10

Be Still, and know that I am God”

The reflector loves this.

A most natural state, a glorious thing:

Being still,

Knowing.

She basks in the ever-flowing stream of God,

remembering, rejoicing, embracing.

To know God in the now, informed by the past,

shaping the future.

Body relaxed, hands loose at the side,

head resting, comfortably arched,

at peace with self.

Flooded by the presence of the Creator:

the evidence of beauty, of light, of love.

Re-enforcing the knowing.

Be Still, and know that I am God”

The theorist likes this.

A most reasonable state, a provable thing:

Knowing.

He wades in the ever-flowing stream of God,

searching, capturing, dissecting.

To know what we know of God in the now, informed by evidence and theories,

discovering the future.

Body tensed, hands ready at the keyboard,

head spinning, comfortably engaged,

at peace with self.

Fascinated by the presence of the Creator:

the evidence of beauty, of light, of love.

Re-enforcing the knowing.

Be Still, and know that I am God”

The pragmatist might see the point of this.

A most functional state, a rational thing:

Being still,

In order that one might know.

She searches the ever-flowing stream of God,

examining, questioning, accepting.

To know something of God in the now, informed by the journey,

facilitating the future.

Body responding, hands weighing up the choices,

head calculating, comfortably focussed,

at peace with self.

Exploring the presence of the Creator:

the evidence of beauty, of light, of love.

Re-enforcing the knowing.

Be Still, and know that I am God”

The activist does this.

A most unnatural state, a painful thing:

Being still.

He swims in the ever-flowing stream of God,

diving, pursuing, exhausting.

To experience God in the now, informed by the energy,

living the future.

Body fluid, hands frantically reaching,

head searching, comfortably moved,

at peace with self.

Dancing with the presence of the Creator:

the evidence of beauty, of light, of love.

Re-enforcing the knowing.
