A New Quatrain: The Ever Present One

Run not after the hubbub of the mob:

Heed they not the Presence, that is the rub.

Seek they instead paradise of their own

From which whatever they may freely grab.

Irony of those who dare not live NOW but wait for future bliss is that they are heading for failure. If your choice now has been faulty what guarantee you have in one to come? Besides apathy to enjoy the Presence shall work against you.

Bliss of the paradise is not in material objects pleasure garden, virgins etc., but the pure bliss is from your trust in the Presence that is same Here and now and also Hereafter. The divine One has no need for a material form to make his will implemented. His angels, his prophets are at his service. He has infinite agencies including human agency to make the earth a pleasure garden. Where does your service come in this?

If the One has promised the bliss and you have understood it in the imagery of pleasure garden where is it? How have you worked the ever present to make a garden of delights for you and your loved one? Despite the Presence that has endowed you with knowledge, strength of hands and given friendship of fellow laborers to make the earth a pleasure garden why seek a paradise to come? Are you not trying to escape your responsibility of Here and now?
