Without Love nothing exists

You are not alone
God's child you are
Stand up tall knowing

Your Father did not bless
So you can live in chains

Father gave you the gift of life
So you can stand tall for Love

Without Love nothing exists

"On our earth...

we can only love with suffering and through suffering.
We cannot love otherwise, and we know of no other sort of
love."

-Dostoyevsky

Poem by Jonathan Star

I Know the Secret

I know how this universe began. I know the impulse,
I know the wonder. I know because I am here, now,
At the very center of creation. So, how did it all begin?
Did God say, “Let there be light”?―No, something was there before,
Something impelled God to say those words.
Did God say, “I am one, let me become many”?
No―something inspired God to want to become many.
I know the secret because my heart
Is creating the universe right here, right now.
And as you are so dear to me, I'll tell you
The secret of creation―it's nothing but love.
It’s really that simple. There is love and that love is full,
And that love does not want anything other than itself . . . yet,
That love always seeks to be fuller, greater, richer than itself.
It is ever-seeking new ways to express
Its never-ending glory. It is beauty ever-becoming more beautiful,
Fullness ever-seeking to become more full. It is you
Ever becoming more of who you truly are.
Love encompasses the whole universe yet is ever-wanting to be more.
It's the endless cascade of overflowing delight. . . .
We know that the universe is expanding faster and faster every moment.
And why is this so?
It’s nothing but love being itself.

-Jonathan Star

Vomit!!

Sorry but your feel good BS post made me spew chunks.

Hearts

People with hearts don't tend to spew when confronted with another person's heartfelt expressions. They also don't tend to trash someone for expressing themselves. The only thing that should make you sick, is your own response. Time to look inside yourself and see what evil made you say this. We've all got it, we all need to put it in check.

my friend

I respect your wisdom and kindness.

new routine

My little girl and I listen to this song every morning as to remind me what we're defending. Hope you enjoy it.

What is with all of this

What is with all of this hippieish love bullshit lately?

Please come join my forum if you're not a trendy and agree with my points of view.

Only remanat's of the rEVOLution

The Ron Paul rEVOLution was about about LOVING THY NEIGHBOR AS ONE LOVE'S THYSELF, the Golden Rule, and Restoring the Republic for Freedom and Liberty FOR ALL.

Today, DP has few like youself, who came in late and got with a Liberty Movement, tossed LOVE out, and has posted HATE and DESTRUCTION for everything, including Ron Paul, and now attacking our tenured poet ((((((((((LL)))))))))))).

Shame on you.

WITHOUT LOVE IN THE DREAM IT WILL NEVER COME TRUE
LOVE IS THE ANSWER.

Well said

What will become of us as people if goodness is not the motivation for our desire for liberty, but only selfishness in desiring our own?

Awesome!

Bump

Big Bump!

Nice LL

I especially like the very first line! Never alone!

This is one of your very best!

Stay well!

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

Thank you brother

Thank you.
I found this quote and want to share with you and others.

Amen to that!

Great comment

Its too bad you did not

Its too bad you did not realize this during the election season when you were making absurd posts such as wishing ill upon members dieing relatives.

Nice work Tom

The simplicity is profound.

You are courageous to soldier on, and for that I tip my hat to you.

All art is only done by the individual. The individual is all you ever have, and all schools only serve to classify their members as failures. E.H.

Thank you so much Michael

& Big Big Thank you... and to everyone who posted comments here.

There are moments in my life when I just gaze made speechless.
Just like a deer would.

Other times I seem to have all the answers at the very fingertips of my hands.

Michael you are such a blessing to the humanity.
Your website "ministers" to the people in over 100 countries giving them hope and educating them all -- all at the same time.

Saluting you!

BIg Bump!!

I like it Tom. The simplicity is profound.

Poetry is a gift from God; a verbal expression of the purity of the soul...

Thanks for posting brother in the fight for liberty...

p.s.

“Marriage is a civil contract to which there are three parties-the husband, the wife and the state.“

lol

Civil?

You've not seen my husband and I disagree... ;)
Lovely poem, LL.

Jeremiah

To be known before
I was born
More than I will ever
Grasp in this mind

My measure has limits
All I know
Began with flesh
My love has bounds

He knew me before
I was me
When I knew reality
The truth of it all

On the other side
When I cease
To believe who I am
To know who I am

At peace

Thank you

So true!

He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

Our Creator is Love!

If Love didn't exist there would be no Creation!

Hi LL,

No, I don't work in the hospital.

We haven't talked in a while. You and I talked a little (lol) during the election campaigning. I am the one that told you about some Gary Johnson tagging in a hospital elevator though here in rural Missouri :) Saying that just gave me the connection you may be thinking of regarding a hospital.

I also thought of this great verse about God's love:

1 John 4:10 KJV
Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation [appeasement] for our sins.

I don't know if I talked with you after Christmas, but my boys got to feed seagulls and ducks and doves and a few crows in Texas. They absolutely loved it...wanted to do it 2 days in a row.

How many poems have you written? Do you have a count?

...

writing poems since I was 15.

Bear.
Thank you for this.

Thank you also so much for this:
"...my boys got to feed seagulls and ducks and doves and a few crows in Texas. They absolutely loved it"

I hope to have a dream this night with you doing your blessed work my friend.

Wow that is cool!

I forgot to mention that the got to feed turtles too. Be sure and add that to your dream! There is a pond at University Houston Clear Lake and when you trow bread or better yet, cat food, into the water little heads pop up out of the water and start swimming toward the food. I just love feeding turtles.

Feed the chickadees and finches today...we had heavy snow and they always look for food after that.

You are from Poland right? So did you write poems in your native language as well?

Yes

I began to compose poems in my native tongue Polish at first - at 15.

Poetry was for me in Poland a way to fight without killing folks on the other side.

You see.

One word.
It can be more powerful than an army.
