Epistle to Earth

Definitely none of this is the best thing I've ever written. However, I think it is important to sometimes make sure our focus is where it should be. =) I think at the time I wrote it I was really upset about some horrible thing someone had done; given the first specific reference I made ("We have...") it probably had something to do with asymmetrical access to resources.


Children of Man! Children of God! Hear the word of your Creator that echoes in your hearts! We are all the messengers of God! We are God's hands, God's tongue, God's pen, God's vessel! Do God's work and not the work of vanity and lust; speak God's word and not the word of hate and division, spread God's love! God's love and life are in all of us and we are OF it. Listen to your 6th sense, your soul sense and do not let material constructs cloud your vision of Truth! Do not listen to those who seek to glorify themselves; the only glory is the glory of God the Unity! All else is only hollow and worthless imitation! You tell a tree by the fruit it bears, but also by the bark it wears. Beware of false gods and idols! Beware of becoming an idol to yourself! Serve God and serve Good. Serve yourself and serve division and destruction! Be ever mindful of every thing (word, deed, even thought) that comes out of you, because we are God's co-creators, as he has given us the free will to use his gifts as we will. Will you create a better world with God by being thoughtful, understanding, slow to anger, merciful, and kind or will you waste God's gifts in persuing the pleasures of the moment, acting in anger and without consideration? Co-create a better world, Children of God! Remember always that we are all his messengers, for he created all of us with the seeds of his Truth, but also with the ability to chose whether we speak his Truth and spread Good or to listen to our bodies' minds and not our souls and spread the plague of materialism. We have the resources to feed all of God's children! We have the ability to unite God's kingdom here on earth! We have the power to protect Creation! We have the wisdom to foster Peace and Unity! PLEASE chose LOVE!

Play your part
And play it well
For the Divine Playwright
Has the greatest story to tell
A story of love
A story of life
The story of unity
That destroys all strife
That shines light
In the darkest corner
From the glowing eyes
Of God's followers
Dispelling fear
Dispelling desire
Dispelling darkness
Nurturing life

A Psalm

Be Thou my Shield, Lord
And my Sword of Light
Keeping evil far from me
So I may not work iniquity.
Be Thou always in communion with me, O Lord
That I might not act contrary to Your Will
Be Thou the foremost part of me, Lord
That I might do Your Work well.
Help me sing Your Cosmic Song, Lord
That Your Kingdom be manifest on Earth
Help me help others sing our part of the Great Harmony
Not for our glory, but for Yours Eternally

I would definitely change "glowing eyes" to "shining eyes" now. Glowing sounds a bit creepy. Shining can be joy or sorrow... but not creepy. Plus there's a much nicer assonance in ShIning EYes.

Winter and Prayer for the Modern Mystic

Today I'm offering a special two for one poetry deal! Because, well, they're both rather short and I would feel a bit cheap otherwise.


Bleakly barren branches bite boldly at blue sky.
I love the image this evokes. Just think of this and it will keep you cool over the next few months, I promise. =)


Prayer for the Modern Mystic
Peace to the East. Bless our beginnings. May Reason bring us to the Truth.
Peace to the South. Bless our ideas. May Creativity bring us to the Truth.
Peace to the West. Bless our endings. May Love bring us to the Truth.
Peace to the North. Bless our work. May Patience bring us to the Truth.
Peace of God in all. Bless the made and unmade. May we manifest the Truth.

Popped in my head driving home from Ty's tonight. Trying to learn how to balance the Pagan and Christian aspects of myself, so I think that's why. Also, been thinking in the broader context of creating a philosophy people of all religions, creeds, and backgrounds can agree on. That's the key to the future.

And three years later I am still on that journey of trying to find a place where we can all agree, which I why you're reading this blog right now. The way I see it, God is not limited, why should our conception and praise of God be limited? There will never ever be a time when all humans are exactly the same, so all the religious (and other) intolerant extremists are fighting a losing battle. The only hope for humanity is to find our common ground. To love one another as God loves us.

The best of the day
Warm sun
Hot cocoa
If they could be one
Like an adventure
In the comfort of home

To be in your...
Yes, presence.
Remind yourself
Blind yourself
Bind yourself
Oh, but to be in your...

The best of night
Cozy comforter
Hallway light
If they could be forever
To be like home
Gone on adventure
