How to Qualify For Membership In The Reign of Heaven
Compost everything and frequently turn it to air.
That includes your headaches, rashes, your unspent rages.
Children enrolled in narrow rooms need release,
then show them the rest of our place, you know...
Orion's Belt, Andromeda , the journey of the planets.
Look into the eyes of animals.
Can you paint them on cave walls?
Search a secret place where the hermit thrush has gone to die,
and flute there.
When grandiose persons try to enlarge by talking,
diminish yourself, mute and honest as an oval stone.
Be alert at the dusk moment when light turns over,
Be there when Venus rises,
and at moon's wake
Your presence is your membership.
V. as J. sends nourishment for our bodies...here's a little something to nourish our soul.
