ON PITFALLS & STARS

Erle Frayne Argonza / Ra

 

Man,

In times when mind’s soaked

in an intoxicating concoction

of rage and fiery resentment

ought not battle against pitfalls

 

that are really no pitfalls

when gauged against virtues

that they unintendedly unlock

 

for such virtues are ever present

in the labyrinth of pursuits

awaiting to float to the surface

of riverine Existence

 

no matter how inconspicuous these are;

they are stars that are forever

habituating the firmaments

in grandiose beauty,

 

despite dark clouds

despite dark clouds

 

[Writ. 02 June 1988, Proj. 8, Quezon City, M.Manila.]

 

REFLECTION

 

I was still a young man when I wrote this piece, and was turning 30. It was a difficult time of transition, though I was already soaked in the vibrations of the Higher Mysteries at that time. The wisdom of recognizing pitfalls as springboard base from which to build virtues was already as clear as transparent water for me by then.

I share the message to all enthused seekers and devotees of the Ascended Masters to welcome pitfalls that occur in their sojourns. Refrain from self-pitying when they come, welcome them as they are part of your molding in the Spirit, regard them as challengers that forge you into a far stronger Being than before.
