The Place of Perfect Peace

The Place of Perfect Peace

In all the worlds above and below

there is but One Balance.

This perfect equipoise is not God Himself,

but the expression of His Life in the uncreated

form of three forces unified.

Balance is that indefinable third force where

what pushes and what pulls are neither one

nor the other, but a force transformed

into a wholly new potential.

This fully alive, ever active Supreme Stasis is the

hidden nature of Great Nature,

and it is timeless relative to the kingdom

it forms and animates.

All the mansions in the Kingdom

of Heaven dwell in this third Place of Perfect

Potency and through its poetry of unified forces.

The awakened person knows this Place of places

in himself ... as himself -- even as he wanders

through the myriad worlds of the now-active,

now-passive opposites.

To touch even the hem of this Truth is to touch

something of Eternal Life and this, in turn,

is to be touched by the

Light that is Perfect Peace.

- Guy Finley
