THE FRAILTY OF MAN
The created being is so frail: He is very weak in his resolve, fragile in his makeup/temper; feeble in his very personality, and has a delicate life span. His soul and spirit is immortal but he lives in an entity which has betrayed this deathlessness and which constantly battles these evidences, his flesh.
Man cannot help himself. He is susceptible to wrong, more disposed to an off beam than he is to the right. His nature gravitates towards the erroneous, and he is defeated by the merest things.
His courage and nobility is unoriginal; his goodness is derived and learned from instructions, through endless repetitions and failures and continued directives and endless struggles, yet he is conquered by the simplest things. It’s like a series.
In constant flux, dwindling to his left and to his right: in search of the liberating life for the ascended state for the redeemed man is an ascended being. In between, he imposes all universal orders, to learn and relearn what subsequently occurs in all his ceaseless replications A poem by Brian Michael, he explains his long awaited ‘’arrival’’:
I am complete when I am worthless
I am unrivaled when I am weak
I am unequaled when I am dependent
I am acceptable when I seek.
The one thing that you can’t see
Behind the barrier in which
I hide obstructing your vision and your sight
Is my incessant and flippant pride.
I am pardoned when brought low
I am free when plans get shattered
I begin to learn with much sadness
I transpire, beaten and battered.
How can I turn your face towards me?
When will you return and reappear?
Where can I go and you’ll be found?
How can I draw you close and near?
My character is honed when I surrender
My candor is present when I give up
My maturity grows with a tender heart
My clarity emerges with an empty cup.
A warrior’s confidence is his strength
And his training supports his mind
But the champions efforts are short-lived
If he is not with You aligned.
I am upright only when humble
I am virtuous when I decrease
I am pure when I forfeit
I am guiltless when You Increase.
God, Creator of man, help and guide us arrive this state in one piece.
