God’s Natural Law

Michael Peach

Like Moses at the Red Sea, I declare:
The Lord shall reign for ever and ever! Only,
The “Kingdom” to which I refer is neither
The theocracy of priests and prophets, nor Yeshu’s
Unsustainable apocalyptic state.
Indeed, perhaps like Yoséh the Galilean
I should say: The Lord has reigned for ever and ever!
For my “Kingdom” is God’s Natural Law;
And this produced the human imagination
And, with or without the latter’s help, the Self –
The archetype of wholeness… therefore of love,
The conscience, the wild garden, and all else
The individuated soul projects.
