When our World shakes and quakes,
moved by deadly Forces of Fear
that divide, fracture, collapse
even the strongest, most powerful
Systems, Structures and Lives,
some Minds fall down into Despair.
Some Hearts crack open wide
to let the Love inside come out.
Even hard Hearts break to show Care,
to be the hands and tools of God
ever present in our World.
Words alone are never enough
to touch and heal deepest Sorrows
and to Free us from our Fears.
When Need calls out, Compassion Acts
without self-interest calculated.
Is the ‘Only Way’ or the ‘Direct Way’ blocked?
We find Another Way, Another Road,
or make one fast beside, even rough,
letting go what doesn’t work and
determined to break through-
bulldoze away ‘It can’t be done’.
We bring in Rescue Angels from above
with wings and blades to carry
like planes and helicopters
swiftly Overcoming Limitations
and Delays intentional or not.
We are all creators, problem solvers,
here to Experience, to Choose
who we are and to Decide
for ourselves who we’re not.
We all live in a quickly changing World
of increasing Challenges that shake
us to our Foundations, our Spirit
calmly observing whether we ‘live or die’.
(Our Spirit knows it cannot die.)
In every Challenge, we may ask
‘What would Love do now?’
then our Spirit can reveal ‘the How’.
God helps those who help themselves
and others. Compassion Acts.

One thought on “Compassion Acts-Two”
Comforting words, Shelley — “even hard hearts break to show care”. Beautiful thoughts.
