Kings and gold go together.
And so the Three Kings bring their gifts of gold to the little King who has none.
Yet the three do not know that this is the One
in whom all the earth and gold is found.
Gold: the ultimate possession. Earth holds it …Heaven gives it away.
What do you claim and cling to as ultimate in life?
Let go. Nothing can be possessed as yours.
Even your body is not yours, but rather a gift given to you
through the One in whom we live and move and have our being.
Yet there are two things that are truly ours: thoughts and feelings.
So go to that place deep within where lie these buried treasures and
give them to the Infant King.
They become gold in the offering.
Alphabytes are object meditations
that move through the alphabet two times
in the course of the fifty-two weeks in the year.
“Gold” introduces the Second Week in Epiphany:
winter in the north, summer in the south.
