Analogy

by J. Sandy

Age Group: Adult


Analogy

The compass, the wheel
Directions reveal
Each one will be true
For me and for you
My path I must seek
To others, oblique
We each have our way
From which we can't stray
Your path is not mine
So I must decline
Advice and consent
To my goal not bent
Inward we enter
From edge to center
From east to the west
My travel is best
Your path to the north
We'll meet center court
Yet we can not trade
The choices we made
I north, and you west
Will bring us no rest
What's right for the one
Leaves others undone
Directions' effect
We each must respect
You stay in your line
And I'll keep to mine
Thus each of us may
Be truthful and say
I honor your choice
As my own I voice
And some day we'll greet
Where path endings meet
Together once more,
We each found the door!

J. Sandy




Author's Notes: Unlike in other religions where you are supposed to take the same path as everyone else, walking in the same direction to reach your common goal, my faith may lead me to a common center, but my path lies in a different direction than the directions which are right for another. The analogy of a cart weel's rim as a starting point, and the different directions of the spokes of the wheels (all of which meet at the center) is the analogy I like to understand how my Wiccan brothers and sisters may each follow a different path or direction, but share the same final destination as we join Divinity at the end of each of our journeys.
