April 2, 2018: Monday's Leadership Manifesto

Listen Now:

Brother.

By Dave Nelson

Brother.
We were given these gifts,
That you had to leave behind.
They told us to pray, forgive
And to ask for forgiveness.
So, that where you went
Would be your reward.
That you shall not go to hell.
Hell.
What this way had caused while you were here.
"Don't feel the warm sun upon your face."
Blasphemy; pray only.
"The tickle of white snow flakes falling
On your arms."
Only repentance saves.
"The deep blue of your daughter's eyes
Staring
Into your blue eyes
And, the timeless electricity of
Her penetrating smile, beneath these same eyes.
Time ceases to exist in these wonderous moments. 
But, isn't THAT infinity?
Timelessness....?
Then, how come we weren't directed
To find timelessness
When you were here?
But, instead,
Guilt and shame;
Repentance and redemption;
Individuality, rather than
Connection
Were
And, are
The directive.
How come we were so blinded, then?
Why would this directed framework
Seek to take
Our sight?
Our hearts...?
Our love...?
And, so you're there, and
I am here;
So, they say.
But, 
As the sun shines,
I feel you in its warmth.
As the snowflake drops
You gently melt back into my skin.
And, as your daughter looks into
My eyes
With her uninhibited smile expressed
Across her face, 
The two of us become three,
Reunited again with you
In a place, where
Time cannot exist.
Is that not heaven?
And, is that not earth, 
Too?
And, is this reunion
Not devoid of doctrine or dogma?
It seems then,
that these two
Things
Cannot mutually exist:
Dogma's doctrine, and
Heaven.
Brother,
How can we see this
Heavenly
Human
Framework
Again?
Where, what we were made for, that is,
Connection
Not doctrine;
Finds its way
Home again,
To the human heart.
The place where
You and I
Remain
Connected
Evermore,
Brother.
