All
Things
Work to Good

For
Those
Called

According
To
The
Arousing
Of
Their
Personal
Lord

The
Erotic
Holy Spirit

Even the fly in the ointment
Discovered
Far
Too
Late

Head
Down

Below
The
Oesophagus

Wings
&
Legs
Buzzing

In
The sweet apricot jam

Of

The Yoga of Providence

20/5/12

Over the last few years I have experienced a deepening sense of ‘all things working for good’ in my life: even in my frustrations, stuckness, confusion, despair, exhaustion, stuff-ups & stressed-out-ness. This is leading me to trust Life: with all its twists & turns. The key to this trusting is the emerging Self. The Self is the God-spark: the Aroused Lord: the Erotic Holy Spirit. Living (as best I can) in partnership with the ever-emerging Self is the key to experiencing a sense of ongoing providence. Eros is the Greek God of Love: symbolising masculine ‘desire & sexual power’. In mythology Eros & Psyche fall in love: Psyche symbolises the feminine; ‘soul, spirit, breath, animating force’. In the depths of the individuation journey Eros & Psyche awaken & form a relationship within the experience of the individual. The poem is influenced by a verse from the Bible: ‘We are well aware that God works with those who love him, those who have been called in accordance with his purpose, and turns everything to their good’. Romans 8:28. (New Jerusalem Translation). The bones of this poem came to me when I was when I was lying on my back laughing & pretending to be a caterpillar with family & friends during a birthday session of Laughter Yoga.
