Nowhere Bound…

Prelude to the Dark Night of the Soul…

(Written in 1976) 

 

 

Jesus did not expect his followers to achieve an impossible manifestation of brotherly love, but he did expect them to so strive to be like God — to be perfect even as the Father in heaven is perfect — that they could begin to look upon man as God looks upon his creatures and therefore could begin to love men as God loves them — to show forth the beginnings of a fatherly affection.  

And How Can You Begin to Know Your Fellow Beings in the Light of a Brotherly and Fatherly Love…until You First Learn to Love Yourself with a Brotherly and Fatherly Affection…?


Nowhere Bound...
The Reality…




Strangers…down icy roads and drifting snow…
well…you knew it was time for you to go…
will they lead to the end of Highway No…
to the island…to that sunny atoll…?



Nowhere Bound 3
The Illusion…




My friend…it’s a fact…you are nowhere bound…
your life is a lie and you are a clown…
a dancing monkey jumping up and down…
beating his chest, throwing himself around…


It is anyone’s guess…don’t care…do not know…
ignorance and apathy hide my soul…
has deeply set in… hate deeply may grow…
you may live or die…just go with the flow…


My friend…it’s a fact…you are nowhere bound…
your life is a lie and you are a clown…
a dancing monkey jumping up and down…
beating his chest, throwing himself around…


The desert canopy is white with ice…
and nothing ever seems right in my eyes…
one battle over…followed by the next fight…
your family is destroyed…you are in flight…


My friend…it’s a fact…you are nowhere bound…
your life is a lie and you are a clown…
a dancing monkey jumping up and down…
beating his chest, throwing himself around…


Now, no money makes you less a man…
jobless, homeless, loveless…no plan…
running out of money…crossing the land…
and when you can’t fix it…no one else can…


My friend…it’s a fact…you are nowhere bound…
your life is a lie and you are a clown…
a dancing monkey jumping up and down…
beating his chest, throwing himself around…


Bewildered…insane…escape to nightmares…
Lord, have mercy on a man, who would dare…
to trust this man, now driving me…nowhere…
give wisdom, O Lord, to this man, who cares…


My friend…it’s a fact…you are nowhere bound…
your life is a lie and you are a clown…
a dancing monkey jumping up and down…
beating his chest, throwing himself around…


My friend..easily deceived…played the fool…
you were never taught how to live…just rules…
is it “dog eat dog” in life’s cruel school…
where nothing is real…just a numbered tool…?


My friend…it’s a fact…you are nowhere bound…
your life is a lie and you are a clown…
a dancing monkey jumping up and down…
beating his chest, throwing himself around…


You have entered the dark night of the soul…

where there was light…there is only a hole…
where you are heading…you won’t stay…you know…
you will return…face the music…alone…

some day…be the light…when you become whole…

 

The Great Lesson of the Dark Night of the Soul… 

(1571.4) 140:3.17 “You are commissioned to save men, not to judge them. At the end of your earth life you will all expect mercy; therefore do I require of you during your mortal life that you show mercy to all of your brethren in the flesh. Make not the mistake of trying to pluck a mote out of your brother’s eye when there is a beam in your own eye. Having first cast the beam out of your own eye, you can the better see to cast the mote out of your brother’s eye.  

–The Urantia Book – Paper 140 – The Ordination of the Twelve

 

some day…be the light…when you become whole…
