Prayer-Probing - Poem by Mary Mc Creath

Probing is going deeper.
Probing is realizing,
I am always
On the surface.

It is knowing that,
There are hidden depths
Still to be discovered,
Still to be found
Still to know.

Probing comes from the
Realization of mystery.
of self,
of others,
of my world and
of God.

It is necessary to do it gently.
There is a time for probing into mystery.
The probing can be active and inward,
Or passive and inward,
Or vice - versa.
I need to do it reverently,
with respect for the
'Mystery'.

In silence I come to an end
Of probing and meet Someone.
Mystery is not something,
It is 'Someone'.

I need to respect mystery,
In my probing.
When I try to possess it,
It eludes me.
When I give myself to it,
It finds me.

Mystery is the deepest 'One'
To probe.
It is all around me
And in me.
It is outside of myself.
It is inside of myself.

I probe into mystery in
the midst of life and activity.
I probe into mystery in
entering inwards
into my very self.

I am developing into
The person that is myself.
I do it alone and with others.
I am never the same after,
Another has touched my
Life.

Probing is going deeper.
Probing is realizing,
I am always
On the surface.

It is knowing that,
There are hidden depths
Still to be discovered,
Still to be found
Still to know.

Probing comes from the
Realization of mystery.
of self,
of others,
of my world and
of God.

It is necessary to do it gently.
There is a time for probing into mystery.
The probing can be active and inward,
Or passive and inward,
Or vice - versa.
I need to do it reverently,
with respect for the
'Mystery'.

In silence I come to an end
Of probing and meet Someone.
Mystery is not something,
It is 'Someone'.

I need to respect mystery,
In my probing.
When I try to possess it,
It eludes me.
When I give myself to it,
It finds me.

Mystery is the deepest 'One'
To probe.
It is all around me
And in me.
It is outside of myself.
It is inside of myself.

I probe into mystery in
the midst of life and activity.
I probe into mystery in
entering inwards
into my very self.
