Blessed Are Those Who Know Their Way - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins



Blessed are those who know their way

For

They are the ones that others will follow

Not following as cattle or sheep

Rather following their instruction and example

Living a life of kindness expressed outward

Unconcerned about consequences of their actions

Fearless

Led by Love

Leading through Love

Toward a future yet created

A future of reason

A future that will be built upon the ruins of the few

No longer misled

No longer confused

No longer afraid

For the ones of darkness

Have been exposed

And

None will follow their empty path

Now

That Love has returned to the Lands

Now

Comes about a change

Now

A transformation begins

Now

We walk together

To a once promised land

No longer misled by promises of paradise lost

Now

Understanding that paradise was never lost

Just yet to be created by Man

Eden was not in Mankind's past

But

In Mankind's future

What a deception of words

Used to distract and mislead

And 

Create a non-place

That never was and never will be

Now

You see the truth

Now

You understand

Paradise was never lost

Only

Yet to be created by Man

It is Man's responsibility to build community

With the tools at hand

The tools given by the Maker

Now

It is time

The blueprints were given to us by all those 

Who walked this pathway of life before

Now

Is the time to build a new Eden

A community of love and respect

For all 

Even our animal and plant friends

For

All are a part of the Eden to come

Yes

A paradise not to be found

Rather

To be created

Inspired by those of inspiration

Those who sacrificed

Those of kindness embodied in man

Now

Is the time of Man

To flourish upon this Land

Called Earth

Now

Is the time

Not yesterday

Not tomorrow

But

Now

Note:  I wrote this poem on September 1st and after making some minor adjustments in the text published it for the first time today on my blog.  My hope as is with all my writing is that these words ignite a flame within you that will begin a healing fire.

Indeed, to build upon a new kind of motion.

Hello Matt:

Yes, motion powered by Love & reason instead of the current (Loco-motion). Crazy motion in English.

Kindest regards,
Mike

This is wonderful, Michael. Especially in this time where so many things appear to be hopeless. "There are no human solutions," is a phrase I hear within. Only surrender to the Divine Mind within can give me any sense of what should or should not be done.

Bless you..........Maggie

Yes Maggie.

We must join the divine with the human if there is any chance in hell..and our current community is as a hell...to create a sane and loving human community here in our world.

Thanks for your kind words and your insights into this poem

My kindest & warmest regards as always,
Mike

Thanks for another great post :)
And so nice to see that there is more people out there with an open and insightful heart and mind in this world. It's seldom find, so warming to see :)

Just wanted to say, with a quote from earlier posts from Mike's poem (for myself then fear of the future easily can arise when facing this world's reality) - don't be afraid of the future because Life will flourish and grow brighter for all those who listen to Self :)
