Infinite nudging the
orientate the swimmer.
Rules laid down for
the common good.
Admonitions to BE
WHOLE … FOREVER.
A never changing,
never ending symphony with universal appeal.
A wellspring for
distortions and manipulations by the presumptuous and arrogant.
manifested through LOVING which only humans recognize and
respect and naively try to change or ignore.
Either a transcendent
considerateness for ‘life’ and its potential or societal
mandates with no ultimate purpose other than expediency.
Merely ‘chalk on the
board’ acknowledged in a variety of ways or a steady, profound
prodding by a universal Conscience and Motivator.
- Perhaps we are the only
creatures who can make mistakes.
- Perhaps order in the
universe starts with you paying attention.
- Perhaps that which
lasts forever is what we are trying to know.
- Perhaps we are being
told how to act whether we realize it or not.
- Perhaps what we
construe as divine exhortation is ubiquitous Love expressing
- Perhaps our ‘animal
nature’ stubbornly clings to the physical often ignoring
what we call our ‘heart’.
- Perhaps our psyche is
like a sieve which attempts to ‘strain out’ all but the most
- Perhaps guilt and sin
are self-imposed bugaboos one ‘submits to’ when overwhelmed
by the loss of harmony.
- Perhaps the
prerequisite for peace and happiness is a constantly renewed
commitment to considerateness informed by empathy.
- Perhaps there is a
higher plane of existence beyond the physical; perhaps this
existence is a never ending loving; perhaps in aspiring to
participate we awkwardly use reason and zealously complicate
our efforts with superfluous rules.
