Poetic Justice (aka scientifically accurate poetry)

Joan Winifred poetry science & spirituality

Your eyes even saw me as an embryo; all its parts were written in your book.” (Psalm 139:16)

In poetic language, David speaks of an embryo developing according to the directions written in a preexisting “book,” or plan. Amazingly, this was written some 3,000 years ago!

Yet, it was not until the mid-1800’s that Austrian botanist Gregor Mendel discovered the basic principles of genetics. And only in April 2003 did researchers finish sequencing the human genome, which contains all the genetic information needed to build a living human body. Scientists have described the genetic chemical code as being like a dictionary filled with words made up of the letters of an alphabet. The words form the genetic instructions. Based on these instructions, the embryo’s parts—such as the brain, heart, lungs, and limbs—develop in precise sequence and with perfect timing. Fittingly, the genome has been described by scientists as “the book of life.” How was the Bible writer David able to be so accurate? He humbly admitted: “The spirit of Jehovah spoke through me; his word was on my tongue.” *[In the Bible, God is identified by his personal name, Jehovah.]—2 Samuel 23:2. [excerpted reading The Bible–Accurate in All Respects Awake! No. 3 2017]

Boy(s) & King(s)

music poetry

A (shepherd) boy who became a (shepherd) king..His melody/his poem:

 

    • A melody of David.

      23 Jehovah is my Shepherd.

      I will lack nothing.

       2 In grassy pastures he makes me lie down;

      He leads me to well-watered resting-places.

       3 He refreshes me.

      He leads me in the paths* of righteousness for the sake of his name.

       4 Though I walk in the valley of deep shadow,

      I fear no harm,

      For you are with me;

      Your rod and your staff reassure me.

       5 You prepare a table for me before my enemies.

      You refresh* my head with oil;

      My cup is well-filled.

       6 Surely goodness and loyal love will pursue me all the days of my life,

      And I will dwell in the house of Jehovah for all my days.

 

{Commentary on King David & His Music…segments from King David and Music w09}

David was remarkable in that he was both a musician and a poet. Over half of the psalms are attributed to him. While a boy, he was a shepherd, and his sensitive and perceptive mind was nourished with the pastoral scenes of Bethlehem. He had known the simple joys of listening to babbling brooks and the bleating of lambs responding to his voice. Touched by the beauty of this “music” in the world around him, he took up his harp and raised his voice in praise to God. What a moving experience it must have been to hear the music that David composed to Psalm 23!

As a young man, David played the harp so beautifully that he was recommended to Saul, the king, who took him into his service. When Saul was seized with anguish and mental agitation, David came to him and produced on his harp the melodious and restful refrains that calmed the heart of the king. The dark thoughts that haunted Saul vanished, and his agitation left him.—1 Samuel 16:16.

Do sensitive & perceptive minds need shepherding/nourishing…(music/poetry)? (sure do:)

Marching/Stomping of AGAPE Ants

appreciation Joan Winifred poetry

You know?…what it’s like to bear the unrelenting unfriendliness (of your silence, etc.)–it’s like unforgiving, it’s like ant stomping… a meaningless little ant in your big feet path is all i am to You–(i know that: I think! i know that)… it’s sad and heartbreaking and reality awakening (and innocent and naïve and tragic and stupid and)…

 ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
i know… when given the chance, the choice…IF i “crossed” You….I’d most likely be stomped out without even a second thought or a simple hello…. Oh! cause i intentionally/unintentionally got in the way of “whatever”… you know?
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

People who want what they want (when they want it) and are accustomed to getting it when they want it… and “exactly” how they want it… stop at nothing– rushing to have it… and don’t recognize/acknowledge ants like me under foot–you know?… crushed in a s-p-l-i-t- -second… unless per chance, you know,  you’re noted (prized) for your outer shell and appreciated for your inner mushiness/squishiness.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Fear, you know, is not my motivation (agape is)…i live in the uncomfortable (compassion) zone of the locusts, gnats, mosquitos and ants. The land of the teeny, unappreciated, hated, so-called “pests” of existence… “who” only get so-called “attention” cause of making you bleed, itch and scratch away… at your treasured skin, your cherished beliefs, your fictional facts and your factual fiction…

agape ants must march on despite/aka forgiving! the crunch…o-wwww-uch!!! You know: Happy Marching/Happy Stomping??… thus, the/my walk of forgiveness… ever onward i  go, YOU:) KNOW……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………:)

THANK GOD…i am FIXED!…as in: (according to an on-line identity/description/definition of “fixed”)

fastened, attached, or placed so as to be firm and not readily movable; firmly implanted;
rendered stable or permanent, as color.
set or intent upon something; steadily directed: a fixed stare.
definitely and permanently placed: a fixed buoy; a fixed line of defense.
not fluctuating or varying; definite: a fixed purpose.

in fixing/healing

You/Others…then!

when

i’m a fully functioning mind:  (aka absolute compassion (among other things))

(!HALLELUJAH!)

this is what i’m thinking:

“Finally, brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are of serious concern, whatever things are righteous, whatever things are chaste/pure, whatever things are lovable, whatever things are well-spoken-of, whatever things are virtuous, and whatever things are praiseworthy, continue considering/or thinking about/meditating on these things.” (Philippians 4:8)

Plus, the fresh air and sunshine is my disinfectant/(healer) as well:  recently read this in Awake! March 2015 excerpt: (my highlights)

 The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes that natural ventilation, which includes outside air flowing through a building, is important for infection control. Indeed, WHO guidelines published in 2009 encourage use of such natural ventilation as an effective measure in reducing the risk of infection at health-care facilities.

Studies conducted at a United Kingdom Ministry of Defence site provide some answers. Scientists there were trying to establish how long the air would remain dangerous if a biological weapon armed with harmful bacteria were exploded over London. To determine the viability of airborne pathogens, the researchers anchored E. coli microorganisms to threads of spider silk and exposed them to the open air. The experiment was performed at night, since it was known that sunlight kills these bacteria. What were the results?

Some two hours later, nearly all the bacteria were dead. Yet, when the bacteria were kept in a closed box in the same location and at the same temperature and humidity, most of them were still alive past the two-hour mark. Why? Evidently, something about being in the open air kills germs. This so-called open-air factor has not been clearly identified. However, researchers point to a compound that occurs naturally in open air and that “acts as a natural disinfectant against pathogens or germs that lurk in the atmosphere.”

Sunlight also has natural disinfecting properties. The Journal of Hospital Infection explains that “the majority of microbes that cause airborne infections cannot tolerate sunlight.

 My beloved/(country) grandma, resting in PEACE, Ella Mae Love-Wil—-, liked/sang this song & it (always) reminds me of Her (and Other Loved Ones! and my (long-gone) city youth and past New Hampshire Mountain family (camping) vacations)!

What is the Longest Distance?

Englewood Beach Private

*YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!:)

*translation: an over-exaggerated response: I found it; my lost poetry anthology.

What is the longest distance? According to this anthology title: “Time…Is the Longest Distance.”

A Note to the Reader excerpt:

Life is measured by time. We are here less than an instant in time’s constant course of birth

and death, the seasons, the mornings, noons, dark nights, and bright dawns of the world.

It is the poets who describe immortal moments in our own mortality and help us recall the eternal

eternity in which we live, where “Time is the longest distance between two places.”

May be the longest distance IS misunderstandings. When two minds/hearts cannot bridge two to one peace = Disunity of place = distance = non-intimacy = lost = a loss.

Unity. Harmony. Love. Compassion. PEACE/Understanding/Compassionate Communication/Accurate translations…time travel…bridging gaps of space/place/time/here/now/lostandfound.

Poem: From the Most Distant Time

 

Majestic, from the most distant time,

The sunrises and sets.

Time passes and men cannot stop it.

The four seasons serve them,

But do not belong to them.

The years flow like water.

Everything passes away before my eyes.

(The Emperor Wu of Han [Liang Wu-Ti] 464-549: Translated from the Chinese by Kenneth Rexroth)

Language, poetry, communication, translation, understanding…To be understood, to be heard, to be appreciated…those things make the heart sing and time worth enduring (even when quiet and even when loud).

If we misunderstand time/each other and squander: precious people and irreplaceable things…are lost/gone.

“Go on walking in wisdom . . . , buying out the opportune time for yourselves.”—Colossians 4:5.

Moving Onward from poetic thoughts toward more practical thoughts: excerpts: 20 Ways to Create More Time, Awake 2010

APPLY THE 80/20 RULE OF THUMB.* Are approximately 2 out of 10 items on your to-do list the most important? Might a certain job be as good as finished after you give attention to just the most important aspects of it?

This idea is roughly based on the work of the 19th-century Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto and is also known as the Pareto principle. It involves the observation that often 80 percent of the results come from about 20 percent of the effort. It has been applied to many things, but here is a simple example: When a carpet is vacuumed, about 80 percent of the dirt picked up is likely from 20 percent of the carpet, namely, the high-traffic areas.

GENERALLY, SCHEDULE YOUR MOST IMPORTANT TASKS FIRST. It will be easier to find time for the less important ones.

5 SET GOALS OVER WHICH YOU HAVE A LARGE DEGREE OF CONTROL. You have more control over increasing your skill at a certain job than over becoming president of your company.

6 ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU WILL NOT HAVE TIME FOR EVERYTHING. Favor activities that yield the most important results. What about other tasks that are urgent or that simply have to be done? If you cannot eliminate or delegate them, see if you can spend less time on them. Some unimportant tasks can wait for months if necessary, or they may not need to be done at all. Allocate as much time as possible to those activities that are related to what you feel is truly worthwhile in light of your goals.

DO THE MOST UNPLEASANT TASK AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Once it is out of the way, you will feel more energized to work through the less-challenging activities.

12 ALLOW TIME FOR THE UNEXPECTED. If you feel that you can arrive at a place within about 15 minutes, promise to be there within 25. If you believe an appointment will take an hour, allow an hour and 20 minutes. Leave a portion of your day unscheduled.

13 USE TRANSITION TIME. Listen to the news or a recording while you shave. Read while waiting for a train or riding on it. Of course, you can use that time to relax. But don’t waste it and then later fret over lost time.

WRITE AN“ACTION PLAN” consisting of all the steps involved in a project, and put these in their proper sequence.

What “little” i know/understand is: PEACE  (and of mind/heart) frees up lots of time! 🙂
