LOVE: "The God Precept is Prior Cause"

An I am of Love is precept approved,
Doesn’t need approval of concepts' inept,
Doesn’t need the nod of man/woman, only God,
By precept of love’s absolve soul’s love is kept! 

Seeing Love’s being is uncompromising,
Not of double mind concepts non-comprising, 
Within one’s own precept love is the comprising,
Will be no rising in the mind’s compromising!

As yeast from the east, bread of life is apprising,
Pending only a few mind’s their realizing,
Of love’s precept which is uncompromising,
Where shall you be(?), at the precept’s advising…

In life’s ascension  of illusion’s mountain, 
Toward the drinking of your precept’s fountain, 
Of clear, free moving waters, life appertain,
Where forever love’s precept shall be obtained!

Since the very dawn of precept’s greatness of spawn,
Parasites of concept’s might, sought the abject wand,
Oh Judas concept, mind inept, precept abscond,
The Stubborn Ox, the metaphor correspond! 

The belligerent concept, of elder mind,
In complex darkness, is groping, seeking to find,
Within the whorish darkness first light’s refine,
Out of void of darkness came light, mind was blind!

    the last couple lines are a testament to part of the message in one of my favorite gospels -John chapter 1- enjoyed this message, Moses.--soup mail

    This truly is high quality work, John. I'm not surprised it is being well received. I will have a poem for your contest tomorrow! Love, Carolyn

    Boy, is this thought provoking! I've looked at some of your other poems and now understand the difference between precept and concept as you interpret them here. You have quite a spiritual perspective on human nature. Thanks, Diane

    Powerful poem of wisdom, John. I really think you said a lot "In life's ascension of illusion's mountain." Even though we may drink from "precept's fountain," the "parasites of concepts" are not far behind. Brilliant closing verse as well, my friend. You are a master teacher through poetic vehicles. Love, Carolyn

    Interestingly, John, the minister in church this morning spoke about Jesus at the well offering the Samaritan woman "Living Water". Spirit must have more for me to know about it since I unintentionally found your poem here on the same lesson. VOID became an acrostic for Vitalize (by daily surrendering to Silence) Observer (be the witness of what shows up) I Am (your 1st line says it all) and Directed Action (Action guided by Holy Spirit) as in your 4th & 6th stanza. U R a voice 4 God today - tks
