Fools Rush In

Fools rush in where angels dare to tread
on the whole the negative attracts the positive
in helpless beseeching ways mercy comes
like poles repel unlike poles attract
know it all positive, knows nothing, and attracts nothing
what will our own mind and senses tell
only complete dependence and helplessness
only an admittance to our selfish failures
only the truth of independent misery
and the trail of mishaps and misdeeds that follow us
not an illusion of make believe success
these truths that break the mold
will allow the higher plane to descend
The Holy names will reveal His form and qualities
these truths will allow us to follow His Representative
carefully treading internal and external, the mission
and development of our own heart felt bhakti from within
without the authorized path, we are in rebellion
what we think we know, we don't know
we can only know what is confirmed on high
must be evidence left by sadhu sastra or guru
what is alien to that binds us further, however grand it sounds
the position, the teachings, the direction of Srila Prabhupada
tolerance and encouragement of all devotees whatever their ways
is possible when the negative attracts the positive
indeed this will be the symptom, one who sees in relation to Krishna
who truly understands the suffering of others
and knows how to solve the problems once and for all
by placing us on the path and encouraging us to stay.
a life of dedication a life of serving others truly
from such a life springs such wonders in the heart
from internal to external then back to internal
from external to internal then back to external
all absolute all harmonized in the Supreme
for evidence of all I say and speak
just refer to Srila Prabhupada's prayers
as his boat enters the U.S.A in the sixties
this is indeed Sastra of the utmost quality
coming from a sadhu of utmost quality.
