For And With The Divine - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins


When faced with a dilema

There are two ways to go

Turn away from it

Or

Walk directly into the storm

The storm will last but a short while

And after

You will be

Enlivened and refreshed

Too many have been conditioned

To take the easy way

Devoid of conflict

Devoid of challenges

Devoid of Love

It is better

To accept one’s humanness

And

Participate in lifes ups and downs

By this way

A turnaround is possible

A turn away from

False beliefs

False educations

False conditioning

And

Embrace reality

With all it’s thorns and pitfalls

Travel through one’s life

With an air of expection

And

Open to all one meets

As one travels on one’s way

Walking alone

Or

Walking together

Walking always toward

The Promised Land

Of one’s own making

Find balance

Then

You will find Love

That Love that has always been with you

And

Within you

Accept your life as it is

Then

You are in a position of change

For the better

Be at peace

While you walk toward a destination that was the same

At your departure

As it is upon your arrival

Walk the human path

For that is the path

That is the shortest distance to the Divine

One does not walk away from

Or

Out of one’s humanity

To arrive in the Divine

Rather

One walks into one’s humanity

To be in the Divine

Then in balance

Human walks alongside

And

Together with the Divine

An union occurs within

One’s everyday reality

An union of Heaven and Earth

Not as no longer human as you have been taught

Rather

As more human

In this partnership

The human walks for and with

The Divine

Yes

For and with

The Divine
