REFLECTIONS ABOUT WORK

Erle Frayne Argonza / Ra

 

There can be

no savoring the foods

offered by Terra

without working hard for their generation;

 

no consumption of bounties

in torrential showers

without striving

for their production;

 

no recital of flowery

words about justice

without active contention

for their fruition;

 

no pleasant rest

of mind and body

without processing by

the sweatshops of labour;

 

no blissful state

of realized utopias

without rendering sufferings

from waylaid obstacles.

[Writ. 27 Sept, 1987, University of the Philippines, QC.]

 

REFLECTION

The poem was largely my crafting of the virtue of labor in the poetic form. At the time of my writing this piece, I was largely enamored to the labor theory of value, which I hold on to this day.

Any spiritual Aspirant ought to realize the wisdom behind labor as way to reproducing in the self the power of creation of the Prime Creator. Being thus a reproduction of such divine powers, each of us is a co-creator of the Almighty in the lower dimensions of reality.

Being so, we strive to enact co-creation in the realm of practice. We were sent here for a higher purpose, so we maximize our presence in the dense spheres to labor as a sublime expression of the powers of creation. Even our sojourning the Path is a matter of engaging in work—in spiritual work—as we put into practice the principles of higher mysteries.

As we move on in our journey living highly productive lives, so does Divine grace come forth, showering us with blessings. Till finally one becomes Self-realized, a process that is itself brought forth by a combination of our efforts (25%), our guru’s intervention programs (25%), and divine grace (50%).
