Question: do your poems hold a deeper meaning such as principles of your teachings?
Yes, my hope is that you can peel back their layers as you discuss them amongst yourselves. The Albatross, for instance, sees with an eternal perspective. He seems to see beyond the next horizon. The hope of the future is restored when one looks at the large picture. To see even a short while through the eyes of one with an eternal perspective, completely changes one’s value system.
The poem The Eagle, portrays the need to conserve energy and refuse to be pulled into the games of self-importance of others. It emphasizes choosing battles that sustain you (battles that yield perception and increase awareness).
The Old Oak Tree out-lives the generations because its roots go deep into the Earth and its branches reach into the sky – the bridging of Heaven and Earth of a resurrected being. It lives beyond the duality of the law of compensation (the sea gives its treasures, but they have to pay their dues – the law of compensation brings death).
These are but a few examples. Hope you can find the rest.
