Right Use of Valour - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins

A warrior protects

The weak, old, innocent, all

Right use of valour

© 2018   M.N. Hopkins

Note:  This poem was both inspired and written today on the 16th of April,  2018.  I thought about the perversion of war with it's hidden face of greed, power and theft of resources under the public face of humanity and freedom and the soldiers of today having misplaced their honour and valour doing the bidding of men and women with mental illness and emotional darkness.  A change of direction and heart is needed if the human race is to continue with our humanity intact.

The Truth Of Hate Crimes - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins

The truth of hate crimes

Protecting those full of hate

From those full of love

© 2018  M.N. Hopkins

Note:  This was inspired after watching the news about a meeting in Stockholm, Sweden with Google and Twitter with the Swedish Government officials and their media lackeys to increase censorship of what they term hate crimes.  Facebook was invited also but did not come to the meeting.  These words came to me later when thinking about the hypocrisy and almost psychosis of those involved.  I thought of the word double talk also.  Protecting rapists, murderers, fanatics full of hate while at the same time going after those who tell the truth and try to warn others out of love of the community and their nation.  I wished to sum up this unwillingness and inability to deal with reality from the powers that be and their war on those who care enough about their communities to speak up in the hope that others will join them to end this madness that has inflected our Lands.

I wrote this poem in the haiku style of poetry and published it on my blog for the first time today, the 14th of April 2018.

Heaven On Earth - The Wisdom of Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov

Heaven and Earth - achieving their union within us

"When Jesus says in ‘The Lord’s Prayer’, ‘May thy kingdom come, may thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven…’ not only does he emphasize the bond between heaven and earth, he reveals to humans that their task is to transform, beautify and purify the earth, so that it may one day become like heaven. You might say that this isn’t possible. But it is.
It is true that spiritualists must reach for the heavens, but their work does not end there. They must think to bring the light of heaven, the love of heaven, the power of heaven and the purity of heaven, down into their brain, into their lungs, into their stomach – into their entire body. And so, after years of effort, they will succeed in realising within themselves the union of heaven and earth, of spirit and matter. And once they have achieved this union within themselves, they can also contribute to its realization around them."

Joy Shared - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins

A child smiles

Joy shared through her sparkling eyes

Joy returned through mine

© 2018  M. N. Hopkins

Note:  This poem was inspired and written today after a chance meeting between a very little girl and I while waiting in line at the grocery store.  I turn around and was met with the smile of a small girl with sparkling eyes like diamonds in the sun.  Her joy was so intense that one could feel it in the air.  I returned her smile with a silly face and big smile.  When I left the store,  I turned around to see her one last time and waved and smiled and she returned it with a wave of joy directed my way.   I wrote 2 or 3 versions before deciding on this one which I published for the first time on my blog today, the 9th of April 2018.

Celestial Fire - The Wisdom of Omraam Michael Aivanhov

Celestial Fire  

From which we light our spirit and our soul. Orthodox Easter

"The candles and lamps that are lit in churches are symbols of our spirit and soul, which must light each day with the celestial flame. Once we have lit them, we can also light other spirits and souls around us, just as they do in Orthodox churches on Easter morning. The faithful each hold a candle, and the bishop begins by lighting a candle from which the nearest attending officiate lights theirs. Then, one after the other, each of the faithful lights their candle from the person next to them. It is as if the fire gradually spreads, until the church is filled with a multitude of small flames.

In an initiatic school, we learn not only to set our spirit and our soul alight, but once we have one so, to keep the flame burning so that other spirits and souls may also come and be kindled at our fire."
