page contains three works. The first is by Goethe, which is followed
by a similar work given to the vessel by The Holy Spirit prior
to any knowledge of either Goethe or his works either poetic or
prose. The third work is not based upon Shakespeare.
a wise person, or else keep silent,
the massman will mock it right away.
praise what is truly alive,
longs to be burned to death.
the calm water of love nights,
you were begotten, where you have begotten,
strange feeling comes over you
you see the silent candle burning.
you are no longer caught
the obsession with darkness,
a desire for higher lovemaking
does not make you falter
arriving in magic, flying
finally insane for the light,
are the butterfly, and you are gone.
so long as you haven't experienced this:
die, and so to grow,
are only a troubled guest
the dark earth.
Goethe does not mince his words in the last verse
Whole point of Light
point along the way
guides the moth unto it's death --
life in Thee.
wings are spread, it flutters by
away in darkest fear
again in fright.
without choice it seems
drawn unto My Light
closer, ever still, the centre of the flame.
all at once a sizzle and a snap
is but part of the flame
liveth in it's heart.
flies in silent (k)night
--within this world!
Be or not to Be?
the answer lies -----
question is -- Which? --
in choosing, --- think of Being ---
just human --- being!
is useful to ponder the question-- which? --
which gives forth to the Soul the answer presented
in the first line.
