The Body houses the Soul. The Soul houses the mind, the will, and the emotions, intellect, etc. [i.e. the image of a living God]. Our ability to think, choose, and react, is the first - and most-powerful - tool, ever given to Man. This ability has taken us from a garden, to a cave, to the moon! Yet, somehow, the truth of how it came to pass, has been lost, as mankind teeters on the edge of annihilation. May we all return to the Garden for a glimpse...then think of the future, choose to incorporate the whole man, and react accordingly.... ergo, collaboration.
~ For my brother, David, a great mind and leader. ~
... Ergo, Collaboration
Rocking on my heels
Considering the situation,
With unwavering rhythm
...I choose, collaboration.
Hands locked safely in position
A new freedom in my stance,
I am seriously convicted
Life is a surreal dance.
Caught inside this moment
Wind gathers [I can't hear it]
Exhaled, and lost into Space
...comes body, comes spirit.
Suddenly, I am sure I comprehend
This incredibly intricate process
My mind is whirling like a hell-bent top
Producing its familiar synopsis:
The only hope for Mankind now
Is to come to terms with his Creator,
Anything less is unacceptable
...come denier, come debater.
For the sake of another century
For the sake of future generations,
Can we not now - as one - agree?
To Body AND Soul...ergo, collaboration.
