On Trust and Love
There is a dark and ugly mass
hanging over our heads
just past the exosphere
This dark rock, when touched by light,
becomes enchanted, truly a sight
making man and wolf swoon
as it passes from phase to phase
you know it as the Moon
There is a thornbush; painful, angry, bitter
when it finally opened her heart to trust,
allowed itself the touch of heat and light,
it gave us the Rose
enchanting birds, bees and men alike
There existed a dark, cold and barren wasteland
in a family of 7 siblings
when touched by light, heat and love
it turned into the beautiful planet
we cherish and call mother Earth
Anything touched by light and heat
tenderness and love
Flourishes, and in turn nourishes
passing that love and gentleness along
in ecstasy, eternally
When the soul is touched by the Divine Light, Heat, and Love
When friend comes into contact with Friend
Angels understand why they were told to bow.
There is Light and light, Love and love, Friend and friend.
Learn to trust the process.
I was ugly.
Then I trusted Love,
Love shined His Light on me
and I became a mountain of emeralds
Now all I need to do is open half an eye,
and I see the full spectrum
Every atom, every beam of light chanting,
to the tune

Brenda, thanks again for your comments.
When one has crossed over to the other side, spiritually speaking, Nirvana or Eternal Consciousness or God, once we have bypassed the desires of flesh and skin, have attained Unity of soul with Soul, it does indeed become a very simple matter.
This does not, however, denote simple as in the standard sense. This simplicity is what masters of Taoism after clearing and unlearning or unloading all previous perception through the course of a lifetime achieve. To be able to see the universe in a grain of sand, or vice versa.
This simplicity is the result of the destruction of the conditioned mind, after meditating upon Nothing and Everything, achieving the Aimless Mind, seeing the One in all and the all in One.
When one achieves annihilation of self (the 5 senses), then one can certainly say that Truth and Beauty, which is what I was alluding to, is simple.
This simplicity is not a simple thing. In the contraction and the expansion of our life, our feelings, our heart and our death, there is a serene emptiness. Once that Zen state is acquired, truths and falsehoods, and words in general become useless. I would discuss this in depth if you would like, at your leisure.

I think i do understand. The devine light is great when it touches upon us, making even our dismal day look better.
It can change our whole outlook on life...bringing us happiness if we allow.
The problem in life is that we often don't reach out to let the light touch us when we need it the most.
Thats why I said it wasn't simple.
But you are right...the light can transform our way of thinking.

Thanks for the feedback Brenda. Those of the deeper spiritual path would understand the allegories and analogies.

Lovely idea...not certain it works that simply.
