The “Co” in Cocreation

The “co” in cocreation
Has to do with synthesis
With aim and end for all in mind
Of its resulting bliss
A little diff’rent focus
Required of the aspirant is
Who wishes to behave as full
Mage and not mere wiz

Anybody can a fairly good
Etheric tantrum throw
Letting all the local angels
And their counterparts, too, know
That we have ceased with gratitude
Illuminated go
Forthwith impatient with our
Current mead of blessings grow

And are demanding, dammit,
(Who already live so well
That day to day existence for
Our Third World looks to us like hell)
— While we continue on perceived
Deficiencies to dwell —
That God and all the angels swift
Respond unto our spell

It takes practitioners considered
Balanced and mature
Resist obvious short term gain
Its glittering allure
And check within to ascertain,
Then twice to be most sure,
That in the undertaking
His or her motives be pure

If this turns out the truth to be
If it is really so
That aspirant will hesitate
Ahead of any other go —
That tiny selfish dream they had
Will grow and grow and grow
Until desired advantage
Is one which every soul can know

Be not in such a hurry
Be not so very blind
Buried beneath worry
Forgetting to be kind
To reach your goal at last and turn
Only sad to find
That you have left your brothers
And your sisters far behind

If seems to you the
Universe is just a little late
In giving you the blessings
Which you think will make life great
Remember then your tininess
Do your importance not inflate
Possess yourself in patience
And watch, and learn, and wait
