Book: Poetry: acceptance, God, divine child, self, and nothingness : metaphysical poem

A book excerpt from the religion and spirituality online library.






The man who does not accept himself is a small man. Only acceptance is necessary to make him great. But there are actually no great men, there are only small men who have accepted such.

There is an inherent despondency which exists within an incident that cannot be confirmed as itself. That is: if an event is defined greater by what it will become than by what it is or what it has been, then man is not man.

The only spell cast upon one is that which convinces them that there is a spell cast upon them, when, actually, they are under no spell.

We are also our own hands, which sit quietly unattended, or respond without entreaty. No wonder we succeed at times- with such fanatics at our disposal.

It's like when you leave a baseball game in the 12th inning because you have become bored of it dragging on- you leave because of the same reason that you came- because of the baseball game.

To step away from being? Into the not-being that 'is'? But what of the not-being that is not? What of 'notness' and the ubiquity it implies? If being is the absence of nothingness, and nothingness is the absence of being, what then is the absence of absence?

The person who believes they are divine, is divine. The person who thinks they are not, is not.

The person who believes they are a child of god, is a child of god. The person who does not, is an orphan.
