With our hands we fight
With our eyes we discover
With our minds we learn
With our soul we desire

For our hands are the means
Our eyes, the way
Our minds are the reasoning
Our souls, the will

We follow neither the sun,
nor moon, no shining stars,
nor any that arc across the heavens.
No destiny or paths to guide save
those we make.
We follow only that of our choosing,
for we are only that which we allow
ourselves to become.

I like that final statement. To me it includes both the idea that we indeed are the creators of the existences we live and that to do this most robustly we must also believe that we deserve what we make of it. In that way we are truly divinity itself incarnate.

I do my best to try to have that sort of respect for my fellow man. Even when they might do dorko stuff like cut me off when driving or when I feel I have been in some way deceived or flat out lied to.

That doesn't also mean that I keep my mouth shut when something really annoys me or that I let myslef just get stepped on "because they are of an essentially divine nature".

When on a quite similar train of thought as this, luminary of world myth Jospeh Campbell once stated " sometimes what your fellow man really needs is a good punch in the nose " I have no idea what Ghandi might think of that but it was both meaningful and funny to hear Joeseph Campbell say it in the context of "love for your fellow man".

I guess you might actually call that "tough love for your fellow man"

Nice little poem there. If possible I'm requesting an encore peice if you got it in you. if not it's cool too.

Absolutely loved this part...great response!

As for an encore piece? I don't know...not something you can force, you know? If moved to write such a piece, I will and I'm sure it will get posted here.

"minds hold the power of our being"

They do indeed. I love how often we are on the same thought process.

So what do you think might emerge from the cocoon?

Not sure yet...I have my hopes, but how close this latest metamorphosis has taken me to them...still remains to be seen.
