Thoughts on Hope

Submitted by DLares on June 19, 2022 - 1:12pm

Hope springs eternal... (Alexander Pope said in 175o) like the glorious, fresh, abundance that flourishes in late spring.

Now is the time to hold fast to HOPE, all YE WHO ENTER HERE! Watch the glorious potentials triumph!

Hope is a confidence of success. It is the CONTENT not the FORM that matters. It is WHAT you can bring to the world.

Do not leave the world in darkness. Do not bury yourself in words. Bring the LOVE GRAVITY of the STILLNESS into the chaos, not jumping into the fray, for that will eat you alive. Leave that to us.

Just Imagine

Benevolence and Wisdom shimmer thinly, like whispers over glass. Be Still. Attune yourself to the subtle frequencies to feel the Invisible Ever-Friends serving beside us. Mercy is the watchword of this planet. And patience.

I stand open, bared like the high plateau in high summer. Long since, I walked myself down into the Valley of Death, studied the stratigraphy of secrets, delved deep to the bottom of the cool clear water, imbibed, revived, survived. I know what I know.  

Are We As Busy As We Think We Are?

I ask this question because often we find multiple ways to distract ourselves from being productive.  Under the guise of being too busy, we give ourselves permission to not achieve, not finish things, not begin a project or finish it, etc.  But if we take a good hard look at what we fill our time with, what would we find? 

I read an article recently that said that the average person spends 2 hours and 30 minutes on social media per day.  Coupled with that, another article states that people spend anywhere from 1-4 hours streaming or watching TV per day.

Thank God for Nothing

Thank God for nothing, for the vacuums, for the black holes.

Thank God for the vast void that holds it all,

The stars, the bliss of emptiness

into which mystery and wonder is born.

And Thank God for the deep healing of the Silences, inner and outer.

Thank God for Nothing, which is a bit of Something in everything

into which the betweening of all things emerges.

I want the courage to be meek

141:3.4 (1589.5) With all of this physical and intellectual influence manifest in the Master’s presence, there were also all those spiritual charms of being which have become associated with his personality—patience, tenderness, meekness, gentleness, and humility.
