Erle Frayne Argonza /Ra
Love, concern and sincerest care
For the loved one and all loved fellows:
Could these be measured
Like the metered current
That powers the home?
If it were so could devotion be paid
In sheets over sheets of monies?
Perhaps the cats, dogs
And other wondrous pets at home
Can offer the answer:
Wondrous pets don’t count at all
Their kisses and devotion to friends
O! How they keep on giving!
They simply keep on giving!
[Writ. 04 June 1988, Proj. 8, Quezon City, M.Manila]
REFLECTION
The Law of Reciprocity posits: “Do for others what you want them to do for you.” A sacrosanct low in all spheres of existence, it is fully substantiated in the conduct of devotion.
As I was saying in that youthful poem of mine, devotion is a matter of quality of relationship, not a matter of quantity of giving. Take notice of your very own pets and see how totally devoted they are to you, never counting the love they offer to you. Such a behavior we must exude before the Almighty Providence and the sublime created Beings in all dimensions, inclusive of our own fellow humans.
For the egotistical types, giving love is a matter of quantity, such a love therefore being not ‘true love’. It is manipulative behavior, exuded to control people, enslave ‘the other’ in disproportionately asymmetric relations, and manifested with the expectation that others will reciprocate in kind. These are the types whom the Spiritual Hierarchy will expel from Terra post-2012, transferred to the world fit for their own psyche and awareness.

SONGBIRD’S MELODY SONGBIRD’S MELODY

Erle Frayne Argonza / Ra

 

Songbird of the country

Please sing your tunes tirelessly

On valleys and hills

Sing afloat your theatre of amusement!

 

You are forever rewarded

With rice, shelter, care

By humble folks who truly cherish you.

 

Sing!

Sing for them! – the poor and wretched—

 

They who were left forlorn

By trusted lords

By false guardians of welfare

By deified magnates;

They who are now casting

New lives for themselves

New hopes toward betterment.

 

O! Songbird so dear!

Lift them up from slumber!

 

[Writ. 26 May 1988, Proj. 8, Quezon City, M.Manila.]

 

REFLECTION

I never ceased to marvel over songbirds perched on trees nearby my residence, their songs serving as balms that can sooth inner wounds. As part of divine grace on Terra, we are o! so blessed with so many songbirds. In the early morning, they role-play as my alarm clock, wakening me through their sweet melodies.

Aspirants in the Path ought to meditate on the sublime meanings of the songbird. Upon advancing in the Path and striving to contribute to the Work, the Aspirant better face people like a songbird does to the folks. It is necessary to provide service to those who are in need, as well as to those who thirst for knowledge and wisdom, service being the 6th Ray of divinity.

Be like unto the songbird, who dedicates melodies so unselfishly to those who can hear, especially the marginalized peoples. Those deified magnates who quack service by engaging in humanitarian pursuits for posterity and fame, those who are undeniably Service-for-Self or SFS persons, will be taken out by Gaia from Terra post-2012, and will be transferred by the Spiritual Hierarchy to a world that befits their egoistic nature.

CHEERFULNESS CHEERFULNESS

Erle Frayne Argonza / Ra

 

Cheerfulness

Is never allowed to be dormant

Among children

In whose currents it

Freely flows

When it erupts

Like sunbursts

That all other cosmic bodies

Gladly accept

As life blessings.

 

[Writ. 09 Oct. 1987, Proj. 8, Quezon City, M.Manila.]

 

REFLECTION

A person who is truly in the Path of Light, in thought and in practice, will naturally turn out to be cheerful. If a person refuses, consciously or unconsciously, to release dense energy blockages from within, then higher Light cannot flow down the lower self as much as it should, thus causing a state of ‘grim and determined’ mood.

As a social activist of long standing, I had deep scorn for fellow activist leaders who were ‘grim and determined’. They turned out to be fanatical hardliners, and were defenders of social tenets as stiff dogma. When they spoke before the public, they discoursed in the ‘brimstone and fire’ manner, lacking humor and life.

 

Strive to release dense energies from within you, caused by very long conditions of psychological disorder that you may have possessed for so many lives, so as to effectively let higher Light flow through you. There are meditation tools available to achieve results.

Do not be imposing your presence upon a guru of the Teaching by stubbornly sticking on to your dense states of disordered selves. Being so, you will lack the cheerfulness that is expected of any worker of Light, and will dogmatize the Teaching as well as make a cult out of the founding Master of the group or teachings represented by your guru.

REFLECTIONS ABOUT WORK REFLECTIONS ABOUT WORK

Erle Frayne Argonza / Ra


There can be

no savoring the foods

offered by Terra

without working hard for their generation;

 

no consumption of bounties

in torrential showers

without striving

for their production;

 

no recital of flowery

words about justice

without active contention

for their fruition;

 

no pleasant rest

of mind and body

without processing by

the sweatshops of labour;

 

no blissful state

of realized utopias

without rendering sufferings

from waylaid obstacles.

[Writ. 27 Sept, 1987, University of the Philippines, QC.]

 

REFLECTION


The poem was largely my crafting of the virtue of labor in the poetic form. At the time of my writing this piece, I was largely enamored to the labor theory of value, which I hold on to this day.

Any spiritual Aspirant ought to realize the wisdom behind labor as way to reproducing in the self the power of creation of the Prime Creator. Being thus a reproduction of such divine powers, each of us is a co-creator of the Almighty in the lower dimensions of reality.

Being so, we strive to enact co-creation in the realm of practice. We were sent here for a higher purpose, so we maximize our presence in the dense spheres to labor as a sublime expression of the powers of creation. Even our sojourning the Path is a matter of engaging in work—in spiritual work—as we put into practice the principles of higher mysteries.

As we move on in our journey living highly productive lives, so does Divine grace come forth, showering us with blessings. Till finally one becomes Self-realized, a process that is itself brought forth by a combination of our efforts (25%), our guru’s intervention programs (25%), and divine grace (50%).

ON CRAFTING THE FUTURE ON CRAFTING THE FUTURE

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

 

What is

the promising denouement

of aspirations for betterment

by all the Earth’s dispossessed

if not that

the fidelity

to the visions

they’ve conceived

can unfold

in their nonpassive

creation.

 

Yes, the future

has shapes and forms

that can be exquisitely

crafted.

[Writ. 27 Sept. 1987, University of the Philippines, QC.]

REFLECTION

As a youth I was attracted strongly to humanist, Enlightenment ideas about progress and the possibilities of recreating worlds. From the Eastern masters did I learn more recondite thoughts about progress and the continuous growth of the Spirit in daily life, thus ensuring a better future for us all individually and collectively as humans.

Along the mystical Path did I grasp the knowledge that even the Earth itself—endowed as it is with higher intelligence—is capable of uprooting itself from eons of stasis and propelling itself to a higher dimension. That sublime intelligence is Gaia, the divine being that had made Earth as her material vehicle.

What we are today is what we have made of ourselves based on accretions of experiences from diverse embodiments. We can choose the Negative Path, or the laggard’s way of stasis, or the Positive Path of ascension back to the Godhead. The decision about what Path to take is ours to make, our future then expectedly a product about that decision and the compass of our sojourns.

The future, in other words, is not a fixed condition of life that an external intelligence has assigned for us. We are free will beings, free to chart the contours of our “what-can-be” from the momentary context of the “what-is”.
