A GARDEN FOR GOD  (The MetaWay version of an anonymous poem revised by Susan von Reichenbach)

First, plant 6 rows of Peas:    

                                                            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
                                   …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).

May your “garden” reflect God’s glory.
