My New Poem: Permission

My New Poem: Permission



We are humbly obedient to the Mind that made us
programmed as it were
as God’s image and likeness
as offspring of the divine Father/Mother
like the apple does not fall far from the tree.
As like produces like
and as God is infinite all-powerful good:
so are we. We cannot be otherwise.

Never slipping up
the divine Parent writes permission slips
for everything excellent, wholesome, uplifting and fine.
< And like any parent would dis-allow
anything harmful to or for their beloved children
we explicitly do not have permission
to do or be anything unlike Him/Her.

Therefore, divine law mandates
avoidance of sin, disease, death, evil, error, limitation, lack, discord, or fear.
We distinctly do not have permission to enter or reside
in a place where ever-present God is not.
We have no ticket, no pass, no ability to go there.
We can’t even find it because it doesn’t exist
other than in mirages and dreams.

We can’t get outside of God
and we have no separate mind
to think we could, did, or want to.

Sure, suggestions seem to float around
but we will not get permission to listen to and follow
anything but the all-wise Guardian
who raises us and rears us up
on a diet of kindly consent and approval and empowerment
delivered with all-encompassing, unconditionally supportive Love
guiding, guarding and governing us forever.

There is plenty of opportunity
for uniqueness, liberty, and blissful blessings
but anything untoward and unauthorized by our omniscient Source
(the Creator of the universe that set the planets in their orbit
and hearts to beating and trees to growing and the sun to shining)
doesn’t have a chance
if we don’t pretend for a spell to give it one.

But why rebel from all delight?

Even though we can never be independent originators
because we are the dutiful effect and not the Cause
we do have a high calling as chosen vessels
since we are endorsed
as the expression and manifestation
of the Most High Supreme Being
protected, nurtured, and shepherded
with exquisite care and unquestionable capacity.

We are perpetually permitted
fulfillment of purpose, safety, happiness, health, and harmony
but thankfully never their opposites.

Meanwhile, there is lots of leeway within those parameters
to dance or sing or paint in whatever way we are inspired to.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
