Embrace and Endure

[This poem was garnered after a Sunday Sermon at the Church of Christ in
Farmerville, LA. The preacher was Michael Fox. I interpreted his message
as metaphysical, but we hear what we’re listening for]

Endure and embrace each moment
For this moment is all we have
Futility (exists) in resistance
Transformation will make you glad

Quantum physics is most universal(*1)
We practice it every day
Not just seeing is believing
But long last, the other way

Mercy and Grace are melodic
A leaf caught by the wind
We empower ourselves and the other
In practice, again and again

Let us not fear in the moment
But, cling to our knowledge of God
And his son of redemption
To gather his sheep was his job

In the moment our power
The past and future are not
Yet teeter we back and forward
Incarcerated by a culture that’s caught



(*1) I’ll give you my interpretation of quantum physics, from what I read
in a book by Gary Ball called Metaphysics, the New Physics. The
experiments were conducted in terms of the Super-Collider project. They
concluded the technicians doing the monitoring of the Super-Collider
actually impacted the result based on some expectation they held . My
theory is that we do the same through the connection we have with God.

We are essentially blind to that connection; but we sense something, that’s
why we have so many different shades of God, formulas for getting his
attention. If we could paint all the different interpretations of God
onto one canvass, it would be varied and beautiful. But our ego won’t let
us do that. Our ego holds fast to one which diminishes all others. It’s
the ego and our surety that helps maintain the separation we experience.
The ego is the silent partner to the spirit, it takes being fully conscious
to catch the ego in its act.
