Inspired by Deepak’s response to my question about evolving our consciousness in time to save humanity or, as he phrases it, Becoming Meta Humans
Finding our way to the future is fearsome.
No roadmaps,nor sure sign posts.
Life exacts the courage that we get up
Every day and trace out a path
Into the Unknown one uncertain step at a time,
When what we’d really like is to
Know how it will all turn out in advance. Or
Hide beneath the covers and pray for the best.
But there’s no promise to where our path
Will take us. It holds only uncertainty that
The ground will rise up to meet us in
Territory so unfamiliar. Scary, the Unknown.
It’s like the ancient cartographers
Must have felt when they wrote,
“Hic sunt dracones”— Here be dragons
Who can singe us with one flame-throwing breath.
But maybe they’re friendly dragons
Awaiting our arrival, and using their fire–breath
To roast corn and potatoes, to serve up
A clam bake (Two if by sea) or a beef stew
(One if by land). Or pizza, even.
Edamus! — Let’s eat!
But no, the dragons might take that wrong
Come to think of it. Don’t eat us!
The future is a tricky landscape
Not for the faint of heart, although,
Come to think of it, maybe the heart knows
What the mind doesn’t (and isn’t there a Blaise Pascal
Poem to that effect?) Hear that, oh, my heart!
If we risk no leap today, tomorrow may never come.
Will you come too? Together is better.
Let us attune (atone? at one?). One-Two-Three…LEAP!
