The Picture and the Frame

by | Mar 21, 2021 | Philosophy

There are contradictions many
That hold us in their grasp
To see through the illusion
Is our major task

‘The Secret’ tells us plainly
Through our Spirit we attract
Yet we resist the outer picture
With each breath, we’re on attack

What’s missing in the equation
Is the power of our soul
Our resistance fuels the outcome
As if a hidden, unsung, goal

What might be the answer?
It was written long ago
The judgments we administer
Causes evolution to move slow

A conclusion is a judgment
A dam that can’t be breached
We’re a hydro-electric plant
Whose force of power can’t be reached

We’ve lived inside the myth
That we’re separate from our Source
Becoming martyrs in the wake
Of our ever-changing course.

For example, take religion
As given from the past
We’re living in its’ shadow
Of opinions that were cast

The ‘Bible Belt’ is clear
“The world is gonna end”
It’s taken many hits
Is it an isolated trend?

Or, is it the result
Of the absolute belief
Of ‘Bible Totin’ people
Seeing extinction a relief?

I know. . . a broad conclusion
But no effort to lay blame
Just a place to look from
We affect the picture, as the frame.

Grandma Linda is a squigily peg in a square hole. Her poetry is aimed at moving the world to love, unity and perfect margaritas. And after years of perfecting the art, she has the skill to paint a better world and make it so.

When she is not serving customers, gazing at rocks, or visiting her grandchildren Linda is writing poetry. And even during all the above activities she has been known to write still.
