the more wrapped back up in the ego I become until very uncomfortable habits begin firing off almost automatically, totally knocking me off of my path and leaving me scattered on the ground to recollect myself.
Is there any way to tame this monster once and for all so that we can work in concert with one another without surrendering my independence? Is this another illusion, a false duality and what I perceive as a separate ego is really just a machination of an even higher aspect of myself, testing me intentionally to see what I might do?
The Pendulum of Life Swings
A seed is planted in a garden with care
Its Fruit of expectations unknown
An invocation of Spirit to clothe
Something from nothing the goal
Mortal toil evokes the Moving flow
Of swinging extremes to circle an end
With providence and patience a Gardener must tend
The Miracle of One from two
Like is to unlike
As right is to left
Blind wakes to new Light
As a vision obscured
The pendulum swings; must come to its end
Refinement and purpose revealed
The veil of choice leaves the first fruits behind
As One new creation transcends
