A GARDEN FOR GOD (The MetaWay version of an anonymous poem revised by Susan von Reichenbach)
First, plant 6 rows of Peas:
praise, prayer, principles purpose practicing the Presence and PAGL.
Next, plant 7 rows of Squash:
squash anger and resentments squash fault-finding and criticizing squash “shoulding” squash gossip squash hatred squash judging by appearance and experience squash interaction and self-confirmatory thinking.
Now, plant 8 rows of Lettuce:
...let us live and speak Truth ...let us manifest nonpersonal, nonconditional benevolence …let us be compassionate ...let us listen and obey ...let us learn “letting be” ...let us refuse “what seems to be” and insist on seeing “what really is” ...let us be here for God ...let us glow for God.
Last, but not least, let us plant the hearty Turnip:
turn up as a presence turn up with open-minded receptivity turn up with inspired wisdom and creative ideas turn up in PAGL with gratitude and in joy turn up filled to the brim with Love-Intelligence turn up interested in living the enlightened Life.
“I have made you for myself that you may show forth my glory” (IS 43:21).
