You will find this poem in German on my other blog here.
There is a new poem with this title in German here in my German blog.
On the Path of Love we go,
forward, to a World of Love.
On the Path of Love we grow,
on that Path, we live – above
and below, it is just ONE,
come my friend, and do not shun
either of the two of them.
Whereas normally the poems just “flow”, in this case, in fact, although I had the impression it was to be published here, I could not first find the ending: I thought of the German “beiden”, which would have perfectly fit, but “both” would not have fitted in rhythmically. What then came, was “neither of these goodies”, but that is informal..
As you may know, I like beautiful names and domain names. This may also be one reason for having more than one blog. Yet, for my readers, it might be inconvenient having to follow all of them – so I wondered whether to either create a new one and post in various language there (I thought of http://travels.jewel-of-light.org), an idea that came to me while walking through Perth (speaking of names – one beautiful aspect of Waldorf schools, at least in Australia, is that many children have got very beautiful names). However, for now, it seemed I should keep my separate blogs for English (this one) and German (over here).
I have been recently telling to some students an old story, which I embellished a bit.
The content of that addition led to the question (which, then, if I reflect upon it, could be a call for me to consider whether I should rather not have added that part….), whether that was my permission to “break the rules”.
That depends, of course, on the nature of the rule or rules to which you are referring, and, possibly, on your aims or motives (which, at this stage, does not imply that the ends justify the means).
I give you Life.
As I take it, so I renew.
As I love, what I do
I am cleaned.
Thus, spring can lead
to the blossoming
source of all wisdom;
deep in my heart
my longing is true.
Deep in my soul
my spirit is loving,
deep in my heart
my spirit is whole.
(Actually, the poem has no title, I just chose a line as a title for this blog for technical reasons.)
I thought about the Light, and, hearken
the angels came to me, since then
I KNOW, I have been longing
for ONE – the mighty, powerful,
but not in outer, dire worlds,
yet, in the LIGHT I live from hence,
for, vanity is not my case
but all – but ONE: infinity.
Mind and Arrow in the Heart, open for all wisdom
friend a friend shall seek, to thee
comes the grail, the Path in thee
leades to its end. Friend, come
to Me, in Me – there, rest.
