THOSE DAYS WHO BROUGHT ABOUT A NEW AGE FOR THE PEOPLE THEY WERE PROTECTING. IT DOES NOT MATTER IF YOU LOVE OR HATE AS LONG AS YOU HAVE INDIFFERENCE
TOWARDS EVERYONE. LOVE IS A TOOL USED TO MOCK THE MASSES. THE ONLY WAY TO GOD THAT EVER WILL BE AND EVER HAS BEEN IS THE MIDDLE PATH. BEING ABLE TO
CHOOSE BETWEEN WHAT YOU KNOW IS RIGHT AND WHAT YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IS RIGHT. YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT ONLY LOVE AND NOT HATE FOR YOU SEE THAT EVERY
PERSON ON THIS EARTH HAS THE CAPACITY TO LOVE. BUT LOVE ETERNAL CANNOT BE EMBRACED UNTIL ALL EMBRACE IT. UNTIL THAT POINT THERE WILL ALWAYS BE HATE.
SO WE MUST HATE THE HATER. FOR YOU MAY GIVE GOD WHAT HE WANTS. WHILE THE CHOSEN FEW GIVE HIM WHAT HE NEEDS.
you will someday reach your enlightenment i can tell you are still searching for yourself
take this, and think upon what you are saying and be careful in your journey for you are on a path of destruction.
there is no middle path. there is one path. and i see you have wandered. take care of yourself.
When love beckons to you, follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
And when he speaks to you believe in him,
Though his voice may shatter your dreams
as the north wind lays waste the garden.
For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.
Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,
So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.
Like sheaves of corn he gathers you unto himself.
He threshes you to make you naked.
He sifts you to free you from your husks.
He grinds you to whiteness.
He kneads you until you are pliant;
And then he assigns you to his sacred fire, that you may become sacred bread for God's sacred feast.
All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secrets of your heart, and in that knowledge become a fragment of Life's heart.
But if in your fear you would seek only love's peace and love's pleasure,
Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love's threshing-floor,
Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears.
Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.
Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;
For love is sufficient unto love.
When you love you should not say, "God is in my heart," but rather, "I am in the heart of God."
And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.
Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.
But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.
