Falling On A Soft Mat

Falling On A Soft Mat

More attentive than any lover or parent
is really God to us, but our gauge of judgment
is impaired by the world’s values, and our bodies’
often dominance over our spirit realm.

A young child first learning to walk
and very likely to fall
may be allowed to do so
by a wise guardian or teacher

if there is a soft mat beneath its body
that will cushion it from harm.

There is a soft rug you can place around others
It is forgiveness, it is charity.

We are all still learning to walk in ways,

so help each other.

            This is a wonderful sentiment. We are still evolving, we are still learning to walk, and some of us - to fly. We need others to do it, a teacher, a parent, a friend, someone who believes in us. We need to get rid of the things that weigh us down - old grudges (practice forgiveness) and greed (practice charity). Envelop the world with your goodness and your own inner values, and the world will give you wings.
