Poems of Provision IX

…the next chapter, another tome.
A life of heavy lifting, purifying and so very sifting, indeed there’s much to do before I leave.
To real people I am wed and of this fabric I’m but a thread, yes its humanity’s greater weave.
From that first foundation stone, guided by that loving tone, I share a message from our Home.
With contributions from all givers, then the rejoining of all rivers, the next chapter another tome.
Oh this mission I am blessed, yet the time seems so compressed and I’ve got to keep the pace.
To permeate through inclusion from the beginning until conclusion, truly this is the right place.
From that first foundation stone, guided by that loving tone, I share a message from our Home.
With contributions from all givers, then the rejoining of all rivers, the next chapter another tome.
For greater than birds of a feather, it’s what can be done together, its relationship now in view.
Purpose, meaning and direction, a true show of God’s affection, yes this will carry us through.
From that first foundation stone, guided by that loving tone, I share a message from our Home.
With contributions from all givers, then the rejoining of all rivers, the next chapter another tome.
It’s good work to build that bridge, as well as the climbing to that ridge, oh for that freedom ring.
Yes the journey provides the trial, the destination I trust worthwhile, it’s that Source wellspring.
From that first foundation stone, guided by that loving tone, I share a message from our Home.
With contributions from all givers, then the rejoining of all rivers, the next chapter another tome.
When it’s finally all in play, not all black or white or gray, may God’s grace help keep our stride.
So then perhaps and could it be, knowing freedom is not free, may the intangibles help decide.
From that first foundation stone, guided by that loving tone, I share a message from our Home.
With contributions from all givers, then the rejoining of all rivers, the next chapter another tome.

…ever so mental
It’s a work for the mind and yes it’s a grind, a new arena for humanity and we’re late.
If things across our land continue out of hand, then other forces may decide our fate.
When our time to prepare recedes and becomes rare, the environment ever so mental.
We reap what we sow, to practice to know, paying attention at all times is fundamental.
There’s a lot going on before the yawn of the dawn, the quietude hours of the night.
You wake up and then a notion, an unexpected emotion, hey why did this thought ignite?
When our time to prepare recedes and becomes rare, the environment ever so mental.
We reap what we sow, to practice to know, paying attention at all times is fundamental.
There is a God connection that is our protection, to overcome the permeating assault.
It’s your deeper mind’s mode that can deflect the load, it’s not because of anyone’s fault.
When our time to prepare recedes and becomes rare, the environment ever so mental.
We reap what we sow, to practice to know, paying attention at all times is fundamental.
There is a sacred read that’s a practice too indeed, on our journey to a greater frontier.
God’s way is sure, Steps to Knowledge is pure, it’s the way to inner knowing made clear.
When our time to prepare recedes and becomes rare, the environment ever so mental.
We reap what we sow, to practice to know, paying attention at all times is fundamental.
So be earnest and aware, there’s no time for fanfare, a subtle formidable foe we are facing.
The Steps we must engage unceasingly each page, it’s a life of conditioning we’re replacing.
When our time to prepare recedes and becomes rare, the environment ever so mental.
We reap what we sow, to practice to know, paying attention at all times is fundamental.

gear

…from the ancient homestead
To get things started you can’t be halfhearted, or it will all just amount to naught.
It doesn’t get done unless it gets done, a determined effort not a passing thought.
So are you getting ready, that real rock steady, there’s a lot to do here and ahead?
Grab your gear, remember why we’re here, on mission from the ancient homestead.
Will you risk your all when you get the call, to help navigate the converging frost?
Yes this is the place that we have come to face, we’re here to saddle up at all cost.
So are you getting ready, that real rock steady, there’s a lot to do here and ahead?
Grab your gear, remember why we’re here, on mission from the ancient homestead.
You’ve plumbed the depths to where it intercepts, it’s the thinking and knowing minds.
Then there’s something greater, it’s from the Creator, you forgot it yet now it reminds.
So are you getting ready, that real rock steady, there’s a lot to do here and ahead?
Grab your gear, remember why we’re here, on mission from the ancient homestead.
When there’s no longer a guise and you recognize, that which is familiar and true.
There is only the mission and what supports the mission, keep this always in view.
So are you getting ready, that real rock steady, there’s a lot to do here and ahead?
Grab your gear, remember why we’re here, on mission from the ancient homestead.
More than a potential and such an essential, readiness will leverage the outcome.
We’re not the many, no not the any, it’s our response that drives what we become.
So are you getting ready, that real rock steady, there’s a lot to do here and ahead?
Grab your gear, remember why we’re here, on mission from the ancient homestead.

The Creator does indeed endow
Have you come to know perhaps it’s so, when God marks you there’s really no audition?
You began from that day, simply following the Way and now your part of the early edition.
For I gave myself to you duly and beyond that day yours truly, a student’s vow I did avow.
That within me dwells the Mystery, no matter the blistery, the Creator does indeed endow.
A theme for the times, occurring seldom just sometimes and the “understanding comes later”.
That drive behind the must, give it all your trust, yes our desire and capacity become greater.
For I gave myself to you duly and beyond that day yours truly, a student’s vow I did avow.
That within me dwells the Mystery, no matter the blistery, the Creator does indeed endow.
Narrow is the wicket and so demanding is the thicket, yet dangerous or mundane I’ll stay.
That unifying hub and spoke, a teaming and sharing yoke, this is Knowledge within on belay.
For I gave myself to you duly and beyond that day yours truly, a student’s vow I did avow.
That within me dwells the Mystery, no matter the blistery, the Creator does indeed endow.
To achieve the results, from infants to adults, it’s God’s pattern throughout the universe.
And yet, oh how much dearer to be a seed bearer, sharing this New Message intersperse.
For I gave myself to you duly and beyond that day yours truly, a student’s vow I did avow.
That within me dwells the Mystery, no matter the blistery, the Creator does indeed endow.
When there’s one chance to be wrong and it’s coming in headlong, with no giving in or cede.
If we contribute together serving in all weather, then one chance is one more than we need.
For I gave myself to you duly and beyond that day yours truly, a student’s vow I did avow.
That within me dwells the Mystery, no matter the blistery, the Creator does indeed endow.

What’s your take?
What’s your take about what’s at stake, can we make a difference for others, is it our time?
Have you tried the alternative, far below superlative, separated from our Source our Prime?
Our mission well planted, are we taking it for granted, are my efforts true and relevant today?
Like a pebble in the shoe, always mindful with imbue, may our focus be a concentrated array.
An unprecedented investment and so beyond my assessment, it’s all about humanity’s future.
It matters not where you’ve been, it matters that you’re all in, the return not a seamless suture.
Our mission well planted, are we taking it for granted, are my efforts true and relevant today?
Like a pebble in the shoe, always mindful with imbue, may our focus be a concentrated array.
Much more than a sketch, though not the homestretch, a great work at hand a true agenda.
It’s the essence of the light, devoting all our might, oh for that hope on the hill and hacienda.
Our mission well planted, are we taking it for granted, are my efforts true and relevant today?
Like a pebble in the shoe, always mindful with imbue, may our focus be a concentrated array.
It’s a deeper inner trust, we establish because we must, a learning and discerning over time.
To share what must be shared it’s imperative to be prepared, so be weary of the thinking mime.
Our mission well planted, are we taking it for granted, are my efforts true and relevant today?
Like a pebble in the shoe, always mindful with imbue, may our focus be a concentrated array.
There’s really no reversal as we’re now in full rehearsal, yes within the stillness there is calm.
For the wise depend upon us, an enduring partnership that’s drawn us, Nasi Novare Coram.
Our mission well planted, are we taking it for granted, are my efforts true and relevant today?
Like a pebble in the shoe, always mindful with imbue, may our focus be a concentrated array.
