New Year and Resolution

“… he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new.” (Revelation 21:5 he          (to 1st .))

“… be renewed in the spirit of your mind; … put on the new man, which after God is      created in righteousness and true holiness.” (Ephesians 4:23 be, 24 put)

“Each successive stage of experience unfolds new views of divine goodness and love.”     (Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures 66:14)

“In the figurative transmission from the divine thought to the human, diligence, prompt-ness, and perseverance are likened to ‘the cattle upon a thousand hills.’ They carry the baggage of stern resolve, and keep pace with highest purpose.” (Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health 514:14-18)



Autumn Woods

One aging fall in autumn woods

I passed a stream so strong and clear

Which flowed from higher alpine lake

Unblocked by snow that time of year.


When I traced back the downward flow

Of this pure stream so strong and clear

The crystal source to me appeared

Once hid from where I stood below.


I sat before that alpine lake

And when I stooped my thirst to slake

With sky-blue water clear and cold,

I saw my true self never old.

Go, eagle!

Go, eagle!
Catch the heaven-bound thermals of Truth/Love,
and soar.
