The mercy of His court

The mercy of His court            

If you’re sure of anything in this world,
o child, be sure you are mistaken.

When you feel yourself hardening
into one position, take steps immediately

to loosen your joints, flex your muscles;
remove yourself from that easy overlook.

Talk yourself down from the heights
to the dust-view of God,

God being not up in heaven but in the field
doing His spade-and-hoe work,

seeing everything in His omnipresence
at every moment from everywhere at once.
 
To draw nearer to that Truth,
o child, and to Him,

concede in every judgment,
your ignorance and incapacity;

throw yourself and everyone in your ken
upon the celebrated mercy of His court.

O child of God, the least, proud thought,
Meher says, veils you from Reality.
