I AM AMAZED!

Material thinking develops a trend,

Exclusion to the profound!

Our thoughts so encased in matter, in things,

We cannot get our feet off the ground!

.

.

Material creatures we truly are!

Hard though to comprehend!

Paul’s suggestion exactly in sync (*)

Beyond imagination extend!

.

.

Knowledge we have but can we examine,

Material thoughts when contained?

Down deep in predictable hemispheres

But shallow as matter remains!

.

.

Are spirits controlled by matter or things?

Cold, heat, fire?  Of course not!

Materially we are hampered, at least,

Spirit world way beyond our thought!

.

.

Just what does this do to the natural self?

Will it not let us explore?

What the imagination presumes to do

Before it hits the floor!

.

.

What we do not know about this endless space,

Other planets, the Milky Way,

The great beyond without an end!

Cannot think past, far away!

.

.

Many more worlds, beyond ours, extend!

Thought tickling pure Majesty!

“Heavens declare…!” and is there yet more?

Much more than eye can see!

.

.

This mound of flesh, the Spirit contests,

This mound of flesh contained,

Spirit from flesh is seeking release

But is by the mortal detained!

.

.

One day we will escape mortal remains!

Spirits unhampered will lift!

To that other world!  Where?  Only God knows,

It is His Eternal Gift!

.
