..."and a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the way of holiness; evil minded people shall not travel on it, but it shall be for those wayfarers who are traveling toward God. (Isaiah 35:8, adapted)

Help for Your Head

Dear Ones,

Keep thinking about the wonders of God
until your head explodes.
You will look a little odd,
but you will soon discover
that since your eyes are gone, too,

Sight comes from another place,
Knowledge of the Holy One
streams in from a different part
of yourself. Live there.
Deep in Spirit.

You are asking too much of your mind.
Have a party in your heart.
Invite your limited thoughts
that are ever so straightlaced and geeky.

Keep offering them
the spiked drink of the Spirit
until they get up from their
narrow cabin
and dance on the table.
They are tired from living in
your tiny head.
How is there room for them to
dance in there?

Even your thoughts need a vacation, no?
Give them a good, long one.
Keep them laying like
drunken men in the street
while your spirit soars in God.

Later you can go back for them
and tell them how to live in the
pure light of the Son.
Since your head will be gone, they
will have to get used to it,
but they will have more room to dance,
and perhaps then they won't be so bossy.
