PoHymn: A Rustling in the Stagnant … November 11th, 2015

PoHymn Nov 11

A Picture of Time

The first shall be the last

The slow will run fast

What we think must surely change

All our plans will rearrange

The price will exceed our wealth

We will struggle for better health

What we believe will soon evolve

As the world continues to resolve

Our family grows to travel away

While dreams threaten to go astray

For we must learn to prepare our feast

Set the table for those deemed least

And conquer the fear that swallows our love

Soar like eagles but live like the dove

Learning the power of speaking what’s true

Keeping some old but embracing the new

No, life is not a bowl of cherries

Settled by destiny or holy fairies

It is at best a time to learn

To spy the corner and make the turn

Uncertain of what may lie ahead

Resurrecting breath and burying the dead

For soon we all will cease to be

A picture, a thought, a memory

So stand for something, as dear souls should

And pray to God that it is good.

Once, but not for all … June 14, 2013


jon croppedIt is remarkable that in a society which propagates the need for individuality, we actually end up at the end of all discussions desperately in need of some sort of universality. Yes, human beings require a certain amount of decency and order to move forward or we keep stumbling over the liberty that gives us freedom but denies general progress.

What is difficult about the situation is that some people like fairies and princesses with their stories and other people prefer a plain path. So to come up with a concept, direction or philosophy that is “one size fits all” is virtually impossible–even though to possess some elements that would bring us together more than separate us will certainly be essential to our survival.

That said, would you allow me a few moments here to address the three “big questions?”

  • Who is God?
  • Who are you?
  • And who am I?

If I don’t get these answers in some sort of practical sequence, I can end up thinking that I’m God, or that you should be me or that God needs to be me doing something to you, or you need to be God doing something to me. (That might have been a little confusing, but I think you see what I mean.) Let me venture a theory:

God is truth. So whether that truth is found in science, personal experience, nature or in the faith that we adhere to that bears fruit in our lives, God is at the center of all of it. And to be a truth-seeker is to be willing to submit to the agreement found when nature, science, experience and faith sit down at the conference table together.

Who are you? Best defined to me, you are liberty. As I’ve told you in the past, I can’t judge you, I can’t change you and I can’t ignore you. I’ve been given permission to love you and to grant you the liberty to find your life. Liberty is what introduces chaos into the earth experience–and please don’t try to change God’s mind about free will. He is bound and determined to give human beings the right to liberty–and don’t think for a second that He will allow you to deny it, either.

And who am I? In the process of struggling for my own liberty, I have a responsibility to myself and my fellow-humans to become faith. That’s right–I need to find a substantial hope to pursue every day which produces obvious improvement in me and is uplifting to you.

God is truth, you are liberty, I am faith–and if I have faith in my talents and abilities so that I don’t interfere with your liberty while seeking truth in all aspects of available knowledge, I will find God.

That’s what I believe. That’s what gives freedom to others, a mission to myself (to keep me from being too nosy) and allows God to be intelligent instead of the cranky old man who gets upset if the young people have new-fangled ways.

It’s once, but not for all.

There are those who would much rather believe that their destiny is determined in the heavens rather than accepting the anointed adventure … of bringing heaven down to earth.
