This poem suggests an invitation to bring experiences in life to the Divine Whole of consciousness. It is what we do whether conscious or not. We have experiences. We act, we react, and then act again. With each choice we make, we offer up and expand the possibilities of a multitude of experiential outcomes. We upload it all to the Divine in ourselves and where we merge with our humanity. Profound courage and cowardice. It is all there. It is all part of the collective knowledge. Life cannot be informed without our investment in our brave sun-vows.., our ideas of ourselves in action.
...This union we all need with love...
Thank you for listening.
Music: Whether it be a partnering with another human being in intimacy or connecting together in manifesting ideas, there is an alchemy necessary to engage ourselves to invest in sharing. If we desire better we need to want to BE better.
Things look so bad everywhere
In this whole world, what is fair?
We walk blind and we try to see
Falling behind in what could be...
Our investment in what is Divine in and around us will grow exponentially... And, well, if we can dance to whatever we come up with, all the better. This was certainly true with this tune.
