A FEW BASICS

1; Question everything or live the life of The Lemming. Mother

2: Look it up in World Book. Father

3: Do what you’re supposed to do when you’re supposed to do it (and don’t do what you’re not supposed to). Jim.

4: Trust God and do the Next Thing. Meister Eckhart.

5: Spiritual, emotional and physical wellness are the rewards of reason tempered with faith. Approval? Not so much.. Lee.

6: Nobody warned me. The Lemming.

THE CHOIR OF MEADOWLARK HILL

2 21 2013 The Tree

It began with a glimmer, a sliver of light.

In a matter of minutes the glow was right.

And the Meadowlark sang its song.

Another Lark………… another, again.

A feathery chorus was now on hand

As The Boy mimicked their song .

More Meadowlarks sang along.

And The Boy became a man.

 

The Year was not New. It was warm,

There was dew as the day took form

Like a voice from Heaven

The boy of eleven,

Joined the choir of Meadowlark Hill.

 

This morning was more than a day in the life,

This newborn man

Met the day now rife

With the pleasance of Trill

On The Hill of The Larks.

On The Hill of The Man.

A humble young Man

Said Thank You.

 

Thank You he said again.

Again and again and again.

TRUTH? PERHAPS.

Does it matter, the ideas we study?

Does it matter, if we begin with an opinion?

If we endeavor to understand any idea or set of ideas
with the assumption that this set of ideas is Truth and
the purpose of studying those ideas is to find a way to
achieve cognitive consonance between the beliefs of the
original thinker and the students, can learning actually occur?

Befuddling?

Perhaps.

To study requires a promise

To cherish objectivity.

To learn requires a premise

That is the priority.

But….

Perhaps there is no truth?

Are we using the right tools?

Oh, for an opinion.

So many rules.

Are we fools?


Perhaps.

WHAT? HOW’S THAT AGAIN?

How introduces simple Logic
What says You Must do This.

How seeks Truth no matter what.
What seeks proof of a Kiss.

How is  based on Love alone.
What says you wouldn’t dare

How is the way of the Tortoise.
What is the way of The Hare.

How is the flight of the Albatross
What is the way of the Free.

What is the Law, the Rule of Thumb
Free is the How for me.
