I have truth on good authority;
but, it’s relative and incomplete
and it cannot be tethered or bought.
Truth’s way is lit by obedience.
To obey creates peace and accord
and basks me in gentle Love’s soft Light.
I’m careful to nurture this virtue.
Obedience begets harmony;
disobedience ends in discord.
Obedience is freedom’s fulcrum,
the hinge of fierce and free submission,
life swings from it and pivots on it.
The dictates of my conscience obey
a sacred will without remorse.
Freedom is righteous obedience.
Willfulness has no authority.
Obedience sanctifies self-will
by upholding a sacred resolve.
“Obedience re-directs self-will…
It gives strength to the soul…
It spiritualizes one’s actions.”
 Father Judge Meditations p. 224
