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


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


Participate in lifes ups and downs

By this way

A turnaround is possible

A turn away from

False beliefs

False educations

False conditioning


Embrace reality

With all it’s thorns and pitfalls

Travel through one’s life

With an air of expection


Open to all one meets

As one travels on one’s way

Walking alone


Walking together

Walking always toward

The Promised Land

Of one’s own making

Find balance


You will find Love

That Love that has always been with you


Within you

Accept your life as it is


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


Out of one’s humanity

To arrive in the Divine


One walks into one’s humanity

To be in the Divine

Then in balance

Human walks alongside


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


As more human

In this partnership

The human walks for and with

The Divine


For and with

The Divine
