In going through a great deal of my "stuff," I am uncovering gems. I am in my own archaeological dig.
OUR INEVITABLE CHOICE
Madness or Sanctity
Such is our inevitable choice.
All other choices
Pale in insignificance.
Madness is easy.
To be a nervous wreck is easy.
To be deranged is easy.
To break down is easy.
To be weak and go to pieces
To give up
And open the gates to a creeping paranoia
And then to madness
To have courage is more difficult.
To embrace hope and trust is not easy.
To be strong and uphold your center
Requires inner qualities.
To retain sanity
Is not easy - but all important.
Through hope, love, compassion, and mercy
To the Great Courage of our being,
Which becomes a Great Sanctity,
Which finally becomes SANCTITY.
Such is our path
And our necessity.
Madness cannot prevail in this world.
We were born into a sane world.
We shall restore it to sanity and sanctity.
