The Pendulum Swings

As with night and day,
birth and death, and summer and winter,
our collective political life
swings from right to left and back again.
Spirituality supports us
in staying centered
while circumstances move,
from one pole of expression to the other.
Outer appearances and conditions change,
but the really important things do not:
Love, forgiveness, generosity, kindness,
Truth and Grace are forever.
The Laws of Spirit are perfect and everlasting,
and Divine Order will always reveal Itself in the end.
The pendulum of life swings wide,
but you don’t have to be overwhelmed by it.
