Summon Your Soul

Summon Your Soul

IMMORTAL DIAMOND POEMS #7

No one else

Can say

Where your courage

Awaits

For mind, will,

And emotion

Must summon

Your soul

To goodness

And to action.

~

Inspired by Richard Rohr‘s bookImmortal Diamond‘. Previous poems in this cycle appear after the image below…

1.

~

So much fear

As if it was unbearable

~

To know

Our true selves

~

As if pain

Could destroy

~

The strength

Of the soul

~

Which endured it all

Despite the mind’s fall.

~

Inspired by ‘Immortal Diamond’ by Richard Rohr. He writes aboutthe human temptation to run from and deny not just the divine presence, but our own true selves, our inner destiny, our true identity

I was running

From God

As if life depended

On independence

A devoted delusion

Miring the mind

With ego’s sad

And blind confusion.

~

Inspired by Richard Rohr, who describes “the human temptation to run from and deny … the divine presence”.

3.

Deeper

Than our deepest identity

God

Our reality

Awaiting

Our destiny

Our source

Of love

Where we

May endlessly run.

4.

I was running

From my own pain

My own

Insecurity

Running into

A confusion

Of lies

A false security

Until there beckoned

A voice of divinity

Calling me deeper

Redefining my identity

From God

I now seek

A better

Eternity.

5.

Why

Did I deny

The divine presence

So present in those tastings

Of transcendence?

I did not know

It was God

Whispering in all

Still moments of transfiguration

I did not understand at all

The hidden power

Of timeless revelation.

~

6.

Within

There are demons

As well as divine

Darkness

So how to discover

God is also there?

And way beyond

Both far and near

Loving me there

Now and here.
