Shift

 

I have fled, flourished, floundered, and failed.  Then I was found, fed, fêted, and set free.  Glory be.

Daily Obstruction: Thelema

Thelema

 

 

Use me as Thou wilt.  I’m yours.

Resistance is folly.

You have broken me.

You have opened me.

You have sounded me.

My will has left me bereft.

Your will is all I have left.

Carry me upon the cosmic current

like so many sparks of light

coalescing in the darkest night.

As you form me, ephemeral though “I” may be,

ʼtis Your energy to fashion as You see fit.

Far be it for the flame to rebuke the fuel.

ʼTis not for the fire to take the wood to task for its use.

ʼTis all that You sustain me now,

dependently arising within a universe that, like a tidal river, ever ebbs and flows.

Composition

 

As a pen in the hand of an author, so the “artist” is to The Author.  Thus it is written.

Aliyah Offering

 

 

I submit, I relent, I concede, I give up.  I forbear, I yield, I surrender wholeheartedly.  Like water, I admit your obstacles.  Like water, I am drawn.

The past is composed of individual days.  The future occurs one day at a time, like beads on a string.  The mystery is the invisible thread that unites the parts into a whole.
