Portraits In Faith is about acknowledging and healing the separateness we humans falsely create for ourselves. It is about acknowledging the greater spiritual journey we are all on together. As a special treat to celebrate this one year anniversary, please enjoy this video clip of Lady Khadija of Flint, Michigan who wrote and performed a commissioned spoken-word piece in honor of Portraits In Faith launch, aptly titled: FAITH PORTRAIT. Please share this project with family and friends, encouraging them to sign up for our “Portrait Of The Week” at portraitsinfaith.org/subscribe Blessings to you all, Daniel
Written and performed by Lady Khadija
“One God, One Relgion
That religion is Love
If we don’t Love one another, we’re not religious enough.
Clouds burst and sun showers rain drops from the smoke and smother,
Falling like the angles, humanity, and mankind created by the Divine Father/Mother,
Merging into a Mercy Ocean, One Body, a Unity Sea.
No more us or you and me.
Annihilated into Ahad – Only One, The Divine Absolute Oneness
Because, unified this greater spiritual journey is.
It’s All One,
Because we are all one,
Unique, individual and divine manifestation
of the All One,
Created so It can be Known,
Made us unique and individual so we may be known and know each other.
One Portrait speaking more than one thousand words,
Spoken into existence with One Word:
“BE”, and it is.
So we worship, praise, and glorify Hu, the Non-Manifest but Ever-Present, Absolute Unknown,
That made us so It can be Known. It is Ever-Present,
Every breath is a gift, that You can be known, so be present.
By learning to listen and distinguish Divine inspiration
From whispers of the four spiritual enemies.
But that’s just the frame.
There are details in this painting, all equal, just not the same.
This is an action shot,
Precisely positioned and every stroke perfectly placed,
Developing the negatives into positives and transforming fear into faith.
Healing and changing and transforming the world,
Listening, loving, living, and learning.
Answering the calling by the Maker, the Creator and Fashioner of the worlds
By bringing people together in our greater, common spiritual journey.”
Dear Daniel, thank you for this project.
You are soon to be married.
I am sorry that I am unable to attend. I almost died last month. I am slowly coming through.
I am glad to be alive
and was, at the last moment, strong enough to travel to my family in LA for 10 days, and have just arrived home.
I wish for your life, its serenity, its callings, its doubts , and its laughter.
Please know that If i could have, I would have been there.
I am soon to share some news with you
but only after the celebration and you are both honored by your community.
I want you to view the full 14 minutes of this dance to Bonia’s music, it is a wedding, deeply jewish, a masterpiece. Please let it bring depth to your marriage ceremony, with its roots in eastern european Jewish wedding……with the most magnificent music I know. http://www.growthinmotion.org/vibrant_soul
