Lifetimes pass in moments in dreams
Dreams like visions speaking wisdoms in tongues undecipherable
Waking to realizations…revelations
But not during the being of, in that other state
Helpless, powerless though aware
Restrained in muteness and blank stare
Why show it at all?
Why ask why?
Something was just taught
Something was just learned
Too many things all at once
How to pick and choose?
Which lesson mattered the most?
Lived them all and lost in paid consequences,
See them clearly now
The subtle manipulations, the pitfalls, snares and trapdoors
Revisited in visions and dreams
How Teacher teaches always at work in us
None of it is an end for us by any means
As long as we remain in Him and He within
There is always a way out of the fire
And through the pain…
We can learn to count as loss,
All that we ever thought we knew for sure
Just like Paul
And from out of our blindness
Be delivered into light
To clearly see
Were never on a par, not even close…
With the hidden gains.
