Birches
Robert Frost

When I see birches bend to left and right
Across the lines of straighter darker trees,
I like to think some boy's been swinging them.
But swinging doesn't bend them down to stay.
Ice-storms do that. Often you must have seen them
Loaded with ice a sunny winter morning
After a rain. They click upon themselves
As the breeze rises, and turn many-coloured
As the stir cracks and crazes their enamel.

Soon the sun's warmth makes them shed crystal shells
Shattering and avalanching on the snow-crust
Such heaps of broken glass to sweep away
You'd think the inner dome of heaven had fallen.
They are dragged to the withered bracken by the load,
And they seem not to break; though once they are bowed
So low for long, they never right themselves:
You may see their trunks arching in the woods
Years afterwards, trailing their leaves on the ground,
Like girls on hands and knees that throw their hair
Before them over their heads to dry in the sun.

But I was going to say when Truth broke in
With all her matter-of-fact about the ice-storm,
I should prefer to have some boy bend them
As he went out and in to fetch the cows--
Some boy too far from town to learn baseball,
Whose only play was what he found himself,
Summer or winter, and could play alone.

One by one he subdued his father's trees
By riding them down over and over again
Until he took the stiffness out of them,
And not one but hung limp, not one was left
For him to conquer. He learned all there was
To learn about not launching out too soon
And so not carrying the tree away
Clear to the ground. He always kept his poise
To the top branches, climbing carefully
With the same pains you use to fill a cup
Up to the brim, and even above the brim.

Then he flung outward, feet first, with a swish,
Kicking his way down through the air to the ground.
So was I once myself a swinger of birches.
And so I dream of going back to be.
It's when I'm weary of considerations,
And life is too much like a pathless wood
Where your face burns and tickles with the cobwebs
Broken across it, and one eye is weeping
From a twig's having lashed across it open.

I'd like to get away from earth awhile
And then come back to it and begin over.
May no fate wilfully misunderstand me
And half grant what I wish and snatch me away
Not to return. Earth's the right place for love:
I don't know where it's likely to go better.

I'd like to go by climbing a birch tree
And climb black branches up a snow-white trunk
Toward heaven, till the tree could bear no more,
But dipped its top and set me down again.
That would be good both going and coming back.
One could do worse than be a swinger of birches.

Love Always

Wonderful observation Mudra. Gratitude to you for helping us see the light and life that is all over the world now with wonderful threads like these and beautiful observations like that one. I think you're right. There is light everywhere if we are willing to look for it ~ so nice of you to help us see.

Also great contributions from all in this loverly thread.

Bushy,

What a beautiful poem, I :wub2: it, it's all about accepting Grace of remembering... we are individualization's of Eternity Being Now ;) I'm thrilled ;) and I bow to Namaste in all of us in this beautiful thread and forum.

Bushycat's poem:

Grace
Took my hand
To a land
Never seen before.
But wait,
Remembering
In now,
Eternity is seeing
The ray of cosmic Being.
Thrilled,
In tears
I bow
Prostrate to this power.

Re: Love and beauty are pervading our world...
 
Greetings, Mudra, for awhile now the level I was operating at was not willing to receive you or your flows.

However, right now I am facing up to some hard truths and felt like returning to the love of Amma the Hugging Saint. Recalling the Universe of her Heart (which I went and looked at) allows me to release some long held in grief because of the joy of knowing there are beings like herself. I would not say she is perfect, and I see she is also seeking her own healing and perfection. But she has realized more than I just how special she is in the Stream of Life and so she is able to give more.

I give you Amma's loving administrations:

Based upon what he is saying in regards to "deep looking" I would have to say that the past life therapy I have been using to finally achieve Nirvana is a more aggressive form than meditation of deep looking and the resulting ability of Nirvana.

For me Nirvana is a definitive state but needs to be maintained with right practices and education and training. And I continue my "deep looking" work, even now doing "deep looking" for others as those others -- this is very powerful.

Please allow me to present more Thich Naht Hahn:

Life as Art. Does anyone recall when the first "canvas" was blackness? What a blessing that they created a society where no one laughs at them for being themselves as artists.

Gnosis you are so welcome on this thread.
Thank you for bringing Amma here.
The soul is naturally happy and loving.
Amma really shows this and radiates from that love
that has no boundaries.
As she says so well " where there is Love there is no effort " .
When there is effort we are just making it complicated for ourselves
by stepping back from our true nature, our foundation , our heart.

Love from me

Here is a beautifull story that Greybeard shared with me ...

God's Wings
After a forest fire in Yellowstone National Park, forest rangers began their trek up a mountain to assess the inferno's damage. One ranger found a bird literally petrified in ashes, perched statuesquely on the ground at the base of a tree. Somewhat sickened by the eerie sight, he knocked over the bird with a stick. When he gently struck it, three tiny chicks scurried from under their dead motherís wings. The loving mother, keenly aware of impending disaster, had carried her offspring to the base of the tree and had gathered them under her wings, instinctively knowing that the toxic smoke would rise. She could have flown to safety but had refused to abandon her babies. Then the blaze had arrived and the heat had scorched her small body, the mother had remained steadfast...because she had been willing to die, so those under the cover of her wings would live.

Love Always

Hello Brook, as I was watching this splendour of dance I suddenly realized why other beings, certain ET species and races have awe and even some fear us.
We are still irrepressible ... after everything they have tried.

Yes, and sometimes we stole another fellow being's "fire". That's when we started getting lazy -- oh how the sins of the far far past manifest themselves in current life. One only needs to go as far as this lifetime, imho, to close the door on repeating the sins of the past.

Yes Gnosis and then narrow down this life time to the present moment to be free in the Now and just Be..The perspective has an entire new meaning when we can embrace it from our inner essence as pure beings .

(Lightbeing, stunning images) (Oliver ~ Philip Glass is great gratitude)

For the naysayers, do you really think God / the infinite / Beingness is going to let this world be hurt when such beautiful Life and souls are found all over this planet? No. I looked in the 'looking glass' in my heart and Life wins, death loses. ;)
