"Cold, Cold water
Surrounds me now
And all Ive got is your hand
Lord, can you hear me now?
Or, am I lost?..."
- Damien Rice
I wrote about this film and how it spoke to me about the impact of kindness, in a post titled, "Lord can you hear me know...or am I lost?" from last summer, and at the time this video clip from the film was not available...but now it is. In watching it today, and listening to Damien Rice's hauntingly beautiful song, I felt myself virtually collapsing into the arms of God, my Mother, Love.
That feeling of being completely lost seems so aggressive today. I know it. I have expereinced it myself. But the feeling of wandering aimlessly through your days just trying to survive without hope of really belonging anywhere...or to anyone...is not true -- for you, or for me, or for anyone. As pervasive as this feeling may seem to be, each moment when we get up, and take the next step forward...even if it seems to only be with a blind trust that there must be something greater than ourselves drawing us out of darkness and loneliness...we are taking a step towards our divine Mother's arms.
I hope this clip makes you weep with relief. I hope you take a moment to allow yourself to be known for who you are in Her arms. To be recognized by a Mother who never lost sight of you. Who will always open Her arms for you, gather you close and say, Yes, I know...I know...
with all my love and hope today,
