Still Needing Reminders #2

Still Needing Reminders #2📖✍️🤔(it’s better than #1, I think)

How long does it take to be a person
Who does not need reminders?
There have always been
Those men and women fully mended
And full-ended
Who learned all the burdens, meaningfulness,
Sum and substance
Of reality:
In other words, its essence.

Incarnation, seer, saint,
Completed men and women
Who know of life for what it ‘ain’t’
And what it truly represents
Here and possibly beyond.

In that case,
How long should it take, for me,
And probably for you,
To get to be that total human
One so much looks up to.

One works, strives perhaps, for lives.
One thinks at times one’s climbed the climb,
Attained its aim,
Achieved, accomplished… then one’s lame,
Where one must climb some more,
Renew the ‘brilliant’ store
Of insight that one thought one had,
Life’s underlying gladness passed
(or is it past?).

That’s when books come down once more
From well-stocked shelf;
One searches once again for self
Through words of those who saw the light;
Whose insights helped and help your night:
Your dark night of the soul*

Stage set,
Sage is met.
You’ve been re-minded and re-souled;
Not far off from whole again –
Till then.

How long does it take to be a person

Who does not need reminders?

There have always been

Those men and women fully mended

And full-ended

Who learned all one needs

To know about the, sum and substance

Of reality: its essence.

 

Incarnation, seer, saint,

Completed men and women

Who know of life for what it ‘ain’t’

And what it truly represents

Here and, for all I know, beyond.

 

In that case,

How long should it take, for me,

And probably for you,

To get to be that total human

One so much looks up to.

 

One works, one strives perhaps, for lives.

One thinks at times, one’s climbed the climb,

Attained its aim,

Achieved, accomplished… then one’s lame,

Where one must climb some more,

Renew the ‘brilliant’ store

Of insight that one thought one had,

Life’s underlying gladness passed

(or is it past?).

 

That’s when books come down once more

From well-stocked shelf;

One is searching once again for self

Through words of those who saw the light;

Whose insights helped and help your night:

Your dark night of the soul*

 

Stage set,

Your sage is met.

You’ve been re-minded and re-souled;

Not far off from whole again –

Till then.

The Particles Of God

The Particles Of God🤔😇
 
The particles of god are falling on my head.
They’re falling on the living, probably upon the dead;
On believers, non-believers; equal particles they fall –
They’re always falling on and in and through the body wall.
 
God is particles of oneness. There are parallels galore.
When the atom showed its kernel and revealed that there was
More to meet the eye, a kind of onion-layered door
Was opened there inside the mind as just the metaphor
For simpletons like me. God energy,
 
With big or little G;
Living, knowing particles that have no personality
But which, if I’d clean up my act
Would mystically reveal the fact
That they, the particles and I, have one identity.
 
I’m trying to arrange and rearrange my head instead,
Make it more receptive than a means for daily bread –
A conscious sponge, a large receptor,
Image-making faculty a particle collector.
 
But each impulse must be pure, for
We get into the areas of justice and reward,
And particles with qualities inherent in our race:
The areas of mercy, all the virtues, love and grace.
I’d rather not involve them just assume that they exist.
It’s the God without the person that this poem has gently kissed:
Ever-present particles that are the living ’s gist.

The Stimulant

     The Stimulant

There is a plan.

Prevailing since the dawn of man;

A master plan that never pauses,

Working through unchanging laws

Consisting of effect and cause.

 

So knowing thus, 

I’ve pledged my whole – Including what I call my soul

To have a voice (despite no proof that we have choice)

And ‘spite my preconceived ideas;

To ‘giving in’ before I die

To changeless codes in changing life.

 

(if death means bye, bye-bye and bye – 

If not, then learning reasons why…

I’ve got to understand the rest, 

All that which serves this life as best;

Or life seems meaningless or mournful, 

And who thinks we’re born to mourn!

 

Every instinct longs for joy:

Contentedness and happiness

Insect to four-legged beast – man, not the least;

From ignoramus to the fool,

Pursuit of joy both goal and tool.

 

What works for me is godhead nearest

(who I sometimes label Daddy dearest).

Universes far from me

Yet deep inside, implicitly.

 

Thus, ‘fore I leave, ‘fore setting sail,

Believing in a force for good 

And something which controls it all –

And this, right in our neighbourhood,

I leave this paper meant for Man:

There is a master plan inherent

Meant for us and our enjoyment; 

Stimulant for saint and mortal:

Total life we have a right to.

If Jesus Had Spoken In The Language Of Today

This is an interesting one.🤔✍️📢
 
If Jesus Had Spoken In The Jargon Of Today
 
If Jesus had spoken in the jargon of today.
The men who wrote the Bible might have said it this way:
“Synapse, structures that make up the motion,
Composition, are but transposition
Of all energy, its origin
Of just about the Everything”
So, now when you read…”You and I…made in His image’,
GIve Him homage,
It probably is true.
 
If Jesus walked around today,
He might not have communicated,
“God’s dominion is within”: Instead
He might have put it,
“If you focus on what’s going on inside your head
And other parts, the breath, for instance,
Sensing, sending mental samples out to space,
Slowing down the mental pace
And doing it with well meant practice,
You’d soon be amazed, perhaps fall down in praise,
For gains like this:
Unsought coincidences, sense of order,
Mind a newly found decoder
Giving in to fate’s decisions –
Things outside your influence;
Collisions, and collusions, corrosions and conclusions,
Explosions and erosions, provisions and derisions…
Mind no longer minds
And you’re no longer in a bind.”
 
Modern language is revealing and appealing,
Only asking you to think,
As you stand sponging at the sink
Or having sex with your old ex…
 
If Jesus have survived this day,
He would have liked to say the deepest things
This way,
I’m pretty sure.

Full Of LIfe’s Meaning

           Full Of Life’s Meaning

Health and meaning,

Productivity and goodness,

Each without the other 

Pointless, empty, aimless.

Karma is as karma does,

Cause, effect, impact that follows

Following the karmic laws;

Chains of act and motivation:

Like a train into a station;

Moving on – you get my point.

Pointing in and at direction

New to view, ensue, continuing

Forever on.

 

For that reason goodness pays.

So does purity of heart.

These the simplest of start,

Richest at the end.

(and even in the middle,

though not looking like it then).

 

This, a facile little verse 

Written post a cup of java.

Oversimplified, naive,

Written down with caffeine fervor,

Nonetheless sincere endeavour

To get at a truth received;

The intellect experiential,  never swayed

By morning  coffee’s  coaxing way. 

 

And so it ends as it began:

Metaphysical, material and grand,

Taking effort to achieve,

You and I but motes 

And sometimes idiots

Living disquietly in worlds of floods

And wars and riots.  

 

Just remember, life that’s full of

Health and meaning, creativity and goodness.

Each without the other pointless, empty, aimless.

Life itself, its energy

Was meant to be

That.

Another Realization

         Another Realization

You are the stillness that gives energy. 

That’s my hypothesis.

Oxymoron, yes, I guess.

If there is cause of cause of cause, 

Effects, of course,

You are the first. 

That’s my hypothesis.

Cause most always churns out chains,

Producing sequences and strings and trains.

This energy to always be,

Never losing mileage the entire way. 

Matter, pattern, form and laws

According to the laws of cause.

This is the place my logic falls,

In a place where logic fails.

Now me, my form and energy,

An elongation of these two,

Is molecule

And maybe something tinier

With energy the core:

Core energy, to form, to power.

We, I, you are energy, and enigmatically,

I start and end with You somehow!  

This, a sudden insight 

That may never dispel doubts in anyone

But me, myself and I.
