Wisdom sees things as they are, discerning the glory of the Kingdom come.

Prophecy tells things as they are, communicating the glory of the Kingdom come.

Prayer lives things as they are, abiding in the glory of the Kingdom come.

     Wisdom, prophecy and prayer conjoin as one when radiance of glory unveils the Kingdom come.   They are not stubborn make-believe or shallow fantasy but the way things are, before and after our falls from grace.   The bees bear witness to grace in their busy wholeness, pointing us back to the way things are, before and after the fall.

Monastery Bee on Marsh Marigolds

A Monastery black bee forages on the marsh marigolds beside the pond, gathering nectar and pollen to feed the brood of the hives.  She works selflessly for the good of the community having watched the waggle dance of her sisters telling her where to find these marigolds, manifesting the wisdom, prophecy and prayer of the bees.  The wisdom is their oneness of being, prophecy is their inspired communication and the fruit of their prayer is their unselfish co-operation for the good of the whole.
