The Art of Hosting

We – human Beings, humanity – are at a crossroads that holds profound choice. Do we go this way or that? Do we stay on the path we are on… or choose another? Do we let go, open up, walk out… walk on?

All are possible. All are choices. Yet what choice provides the greatest flow, the greatest service, the greatest potential? How do we discern? How do we find the courage to say YES – and move… in order to place ourselves well?

This poem speaks to some of the choices, I believe, we face.

Parallels running along the edges of Time

Travelling between the shores of the new World

And this one being transmuted

How will we transit?

By Swimming – or sinking?

The latter…if un-committing

Come - the edge IS crumbling

What will WE choose?

Parallels running along the edges of Truth

Travelling between the shores of the new World

And this one being bridged

How will we tender?

By Loving - or Fearing?

The latter…if uncaring

Come - the edge IS wavering

What will WE choose?

Parallels running along the edges of Trust

Travelling between the shores of the new World

And this one being trampled

How will we relate?

By Honoring - or Mis-deeding?

The latter…if non-believing

Come - the edge IS cracking

What will WE choose?

Parallels running along the edges of Beauty

Travelling between the shores of the new World

And this one being neglected

How will we attend?

By Creating - or Negating?

The latter…if non-cultivating…

Come - the edge is captivating

What will WE choose?

Parallels running along the edges of Hope

Travelling between the shores of the new World

And this one being dreamed

How will we participate?

Joyfully…wantonly

The latter…if not wholeheartedly

Come - the edge is beckoning

What will WE choose?

What will WE choose?
