When men are free to be beautiful And women become inspired by the bravery of Alexander –
When men start reflecting on the beauty of their surroundings And women train night and day for competitive contests –
When men write poetry about their love of the natural world And women burn with desire for stellar accomplishments –
Is the time when men and women will start switching roles – And, then, switching back again – Especially since such roles will no longer exist – Nor the traditional hierarchies either – And people’s historically stubborn egos will disappear forever.
When everyone becomes free enough to be their “true self” They’ll also be free to ask what God would do – and then, actually, do it!
This is the spiritual space Jesus embodied himself, Then perfected, and, subsequently, died for!
Now, two millennia later, it’s become somewhat easier to achieve – Not, of course, a “gimme” – But, certainly, more possible Now than then!
Emptiness can be glamorous because, existentially, it’s so free! Some people want it, demand it, and at times live only for it.
Emptiness – (a long drum roll) – And then, suddenly, “Bang” – you’ve become a new being – Surprising even yourself!
God spends nearly forever helping us on this particular path – You can feel God as God comes closer – Suddenly, you awake, become stimulated, and then “turned on” – Aware that “This is your time!”
Time to tumble down a long hill into reality – Time to draw a “picture” that resonates With anyone who ever glances up – And in.
So, there’s the heart you’ve mostly been unaware of – Beating while you’re still sleeping – But when this heart finally awakens you’ll be denied nothing – Because the first step on the way to the Kingdom of God Is no different from the last – Since God can “hear” you – regardless of whether you’re near or far!
