Some spiritual concepts are mysteries…taken on faith, unable to be explained. I wondered though how could I visualize one of the main concepts of Christianity, namely the Trinity – One God in three persons – One substance; three essences.
Nancy Dort Rossow
I gaze at sunlight glistening on The Water; dancing, shimmering explosions of Light dazzling the eyes.
I envision GOD…unable to be contained, like liquid mercury slipping through the fingers;
The Water – refreshing and life-giving;
Gentle, flowing, steady, powerful.
A Creative Force, carving something out of nothing.
I gaze at sunlight reflecting on The Frozen Lake; the Water of the winter season.
I envision JESUS… same substance, same GOD.
The frozen Lake – tangible, strong, a rock-like immoveable force;
Holding me up,
Then sacrificing; melting away into the same Life Force.
I gaze at sunlight peeking through Billows of light, steamy Mist; enveloping everything.
I envision the HOLY SPIRIT…arising out of the same substance of GOD of the Lake.
The Vaporous Mist – unstoppable, rising above, and dissipating into the whole world;
Clearing to reveal truth and beauty;
Permeating the soul’s pores and leaving invigorating dew behind;
Evaporating into the heavens and falling back into the Lake, The Water.
Same substance, same God.
