Within

“What is Above is Within … the Circumference is Winthin, Without is formed the Selfish Center, and the Circumference still expands going forward to Eternity.”
― William Blake

What lies within the heart of a man?

Is it compassion
Benevolence
Kindness
Purity
Generosity

Perhaps it is goodness, maybe virtue?
Empathy or Mercy. . .
Perhaps it is a bit of each. . .

All being the minute fragments endowed to the created by the masterful Creator

No one can see deep into the darkness
The secret places within

Yet, in the endowment of the gifts from the Master Creator,
The gift of freedom was to be paramount.
The ability to choose. . .
Right or Wrong
Truth or Falsehood
Love or Hate

Somewhere in the hidden places within,
A struggle ensues.
Wrestling with choice overshadows all. . .
And yet, there are those defining moments when
There are no battles, no conflict. . .
The decision is without choice. . .
And it is easily made

There is sacrifice
Charity
Selflessness
Giving
Offering
Humility
Grace
Mercy
Tenderness
and most importantly
Love. . .
