Good Day, God!
I started my day reading an article about Princeton professor Gerta Keller and the debate about the causes of the extinction of the dinosaurs. Could it have been a Big asteroid? Or massive volcanic activity in the Deccan Traps? Oh MY!
Next came a lovely walk around my neighborhood. Then a walk at the beach in Wawamalu. It was low tide and so the tide pools were more accessible — filled with tiny fish.
Meanwhile, my friend mentioned the Hawaiian idea that we humans have three pikos. I knew that piko was the Hawaiian word for belly button — but I didn’t know that there is another piko in our head and also a piko in our genital area. My friend had learned this in a talk a few days ago and said she felt uneasy about it.
In talking about it, she explained that the middle piko is our connection with our Past, the bottom piko connects to our Future, and the top piko connects to You. Then she stopped and said, “But what about our Present?”
Hmm. Good question! Then it was, like, OH! The Past is to Nourish our Present. The Future is to Inspire our Present and God is to Guide our Present. Three Pikos working together. I love it, God!
Then I pulled out the three objects I had picked up on the beach. A beverage pull tab, a shell fragment and an old smooth piece of coral. What do they all share? A HOLE!
For years, God, I have asked You to patch the Holes in People’s’ Souls. But now I am seeing Pikos/Holes in a whole new light. Surely, God, You want to reclaim the old torn holes in our souls! You want to Pour Your Love Through them. In. Through. Out. Ah!
You are The Great I AM. Thank You!
