Jan Phillips, Author, Lecturer, Photographer, Mentor

I first met Jan about 5 years ago when I was at a real sad point in my life. My sister and I went to one of her seminars. Jan sat and LISTENED to me and I felt the first little glimmer of hope, and I was on my way. My sister Kasia and I saw her again about 2 years later. She is such a neat lady. She is awe-inspiring, a great author, lecturer, song-writer, mentor and you have to check her out! Read all about her here: jan@janphillips.comDSCN0177

I light my morning candle
as a humble hello
to You, Invisible One.
It is me here, I say,
from the land of matter.
Word made flesh, I announce
breathing you

I am steeped in the mystery
of holy communion:
known and unknown
energy and mass
heaven and earth

If there is a God,
I am in awe.
If there is not a God,
I am in greater awe.

I bow like a spelunker
in the cave of mystery.

I cut all ties to certainty.
I rejoice in wonder,
bend my knee to the darkness.

Inside me there is a spark
called my spirit
I spend my days calling out
thanks for this
in every direction-
to the right and the left,
the above and below,
the within and without

and I will do this faithfully
till my last breath
vanishes one day
into the blue sky of You.

from No Ordinary Time
