Pearls of Wisdom

Pearl 6

In the gardens of the soul does the Master speak, saying:

“I am awakened,

Not as someone lulled to sleep,

Nor distracted by illusions,

Neither lost nor made confounded

By the shadows of today;

But am instead made most aware,

Through the wisdom which comes from God.

I am awakened,

To stand as one most fully rested,

And in the mind made calm,

Filled within by deep contentment,

To stand untroubled midst the fray,

Accepting with a godly grace

The ebb and flow of life.

I am awakened,

Like a star that’s brightly burning

In the midst of darkest night,

Like sunshine warmly glowing

In the midst of falling rain;

Always seeing beyond the moment,

Filled within by quiet assurance.

I am awakened,

Like the sun I outward shine,

Replacing hurt with calm acceptance,

Giving strength to those made weak,

Bringing courage to those made fearful,

Opening wide the hearts of others,

To fill with songs instead of tears.

I am awakened,

Enlivened from within,

Enlightened from beyond,

Unperturbed and always hopeful,

Reaching deep beyond the stars,

Singing well the songs of Heaven,

Made awake and filled with God.”

“I’m going to tell you a phenomenal anticlimactic story that will fuck you up.

But first I must roll, lick, burn, blow…”
