PostSubject: A "Return To Sender"   Fri Jan 22, 2016 7:17 am

"A Return To Sender"

For all the many choices

In a moment

In an hour…

In a day

In a lifetime

It always seems to boil down to one of two

No matter where we are

What we are doing

Even at a four way stop

Pondering…

Only the one of two

 

Only the one of two in Three

are truly of any appreciable consequence

Given a choice…

Of will

Of way

Right “Now”

There is only One to cleave to and obey

One to forsake

 

We would leave on a moment’s notice

Given a ticket to paradise

Pack no bags

For this journey

There is nothing material of value to take

Dual citizenship for a murmur’s time

In the Great heart of matter

To be in…

Yet not of

In the midst of turmoil

You offer life eternal

Peace, rest , Love

 

Unfathomable

How in an appointed moment of time

We are confronted by a Truth

That sunders the veil

Of every conception of man

Every theory of time and space

Become irrelevant pursuits

It is always

And can only be

Hear and Now in You

Self-sufficiency melts away In Your presence

Malfeasance shed…

Filthy rags and remnants of yesterday

“More than sufficient”

Denouncing the “old man” and his ways

Still a constant struggle

And a conundrum prevails

Tears the page

These thoughts that stream so much fiercer now

In a heart ablaze

And one seems to forget more

The harder one tries

What initially came to mind so effortless-ly

Finding it hard to remember what it was

One was truly intending to say

 

Maybe it’s for the best

Goes much easier when we learn to accept and face

rather than engage in futile attempts to circumvent

Pre-ordained inevitable trials and tests

those small tastes of effects

in lost causes

that assist in steering courses correct 

Take the change as it comes

Reflect upon the wonder of…

The unknown mystery

That every now and then peeks out at us and seems to say:

“did you catch it? Ya’ gotta’ be quick,

perhaps next time and many wonderful next times without limits”

We must confess

There are things we are not meant to comprehend

Nor should we even continue to try

But we will..fer’ sure!

 

Eventually…

Deep in our heart of hearts we know

That we don’t know all

But know, that we know, what we know

Of what is imperative and essential in the utmost order

We accept in faith and trust and belief

That You are all there is to know

Funny…these glory bumps

How they just catch us by surprise every time

That tingling we learn not to fear

Tis’ but the beginning of wisdom

And the strength in weakness subtly being imbued

Well on our way

To becoming “well equipped”

In the midst of testing by trials and tribulations

Learning perseverance…

In fierce prevailing storms

Your tender whisper resounding!

 

For every creature comfort

We are loathe to deny

A rationale is conceived

In the blink of an “I”

Resisting change

And sometimes…

Embracing a means to self-justify

 

These are but lies

And doldrums now

To be cast aside

And not worthy of a second thought

 

We all must “run”

At one time or another

“fight or flight?”

But once taught

It reiterates again and again

That there are only one of two options

To

“Run from”

Or “run to”

 

Only one of the two

Guarantees a safe return 
To the 'SENDER'

You have the intensity and resource to speak here as one who "missed the boat" for a time and then made a wonderful choice to embark for and with Glory. This is one of your best, OEW. It just flows through so many points of profound self-abandonment...Doug

Ahh...but this was written by many of us with a healthy dose of "You".
The sum total of every encounter up until..."NOW".
And it could still be much better, always room to improve in HIM.

Cause Im home for the second day of head cold and feverish temp and nose like Niagara and rib cage wracking cough. Incidentally your February comments to Laura were gold and gave definition to the words creative forum. Now if we could only have a few less parashas. These days I am only prepared to open the Old Book at Psalms Isaiah Ezekiel and the Minor Prophets.
