Faith seeking understanding, my personal journey towards a deeper knowledge of and intimacy with God, the cosmos, humanity and myself through thoughts, words and (occasionally) images, is a series of [hopefully] daily reflections I’m writing with the purpose of publishing something on a regular basis for others to read, either here, at joncarllewis.com or among my writings at Medium.com.
Perhaps what I need is a fig leaf.
Something to hide my nakedness
So I won’t be ashamed
When I tell my naked truth.
Or is the fig leaf a compromise?
One that in concealing
Reveals only what is conventional
And manages to hide only the essence,
The very thing that needs to be exposed.
Perhaps what I need is a mask.
Something to hide my face
So when I go about the world
My truth will be exposed
And no one will know it’s me.
Perhaps what I need
Is to learn some way
To toss both leaf and mask aside
Toss aside my shame.
Thank you for your time and attention.
I’d love to know your thoughts on what you’ve read.
