Treasure Island

Love It, Change It, Hold It, Hate It (Revised)

Reading my New Testament favourites
seeking spiritual food - just as anyone
who thinks about an inner, cognitive,
invisible world is likely to do

I love my culture's religious & spiritual
texts because, simply - it's mine, neither
superior nor inferior to each and any
- all unique as inner technique

To approach and direct consciousness;
quantum physics expresses how minds
shape reality - explains how all belief
systems fulfil expectations equally

Personal taste dictates where we feel
at home; meditation and visualisation
through prayer is mind reconstructing
the world into being more than it is

Being joyous is possible because we
are free to do what we please with
everything: love it, change it, hold it,
hate it, forget it, chase it, eat it

I like the way New Testament Apostles
remained gracefully joyful when in jail,
anyone can dislike this meek attitude,
prefer the challenges of violence and

Sweet revenge, making it a more ex-
citing world - and they cannot limit
the freedom of those who prefer to
contemplate life in tranquillity

Looking for significance in every life,
studying history as recorded in the
writings of the Apostles and the great
figures of Eastern Religions…

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
