Day of Atonement

Yom Kippur, Day of Atonement.
Even if you're not Jewish
you can use such a day.
A day of solemnity,
for the depth of our sin,
and a day of joy,
for the greater depth of our forgiveness.
Ignore neither.

Name your sin.
Sit with it.

Spend some time with this.

Hold it out in front of you,
your offering to God.
The Righteous One receives it,
and forgives you, completely.
Completely.

Spend some time with this.

In honesty, lovingly beholding
who you truly are,
you experience your at-one-ment with God.
At one with God, because God is One with you,
you are one with all people.
Live this way.

Spend some time with this.
