"clap your hands; shout to God with cries of gladness" Psalms 47(46):2-3

All you peoples, clap your hands;
shout to God with cries of gladness.
For the LORD, the Most High, the awesome,
is the great king over all the earth. 

An Applause To Learning

"clap your hands; shout to God with cries of gladness" Psalms 47(46):2-3

        it costs money
        to buy and waste
        leaves a more desirable taste
        than bitter conflict
        tugging the rope
        to the breaking point
        stuck on the edges of pros & cons

        imposing limits on oneself
        has a greater value
        than limits forced
        by someone else

                not taking
                until the pleasure runs out 
                and there's none left to relish
                and to dream with
        brings lasting enjoyment

        personal trouble mountains
        shrink in proportion
        with just a simple shift in plea
        "be fair to us"
        and to hear in the listening

        to soothe
        another's fresh hurt or old wound
        fills out one's own dire need
        and emptied human shell
        with soulful

        to tame
        the rage of anger
        injustice - shame - disgust
        is to accept faults
        failures - imperfect behaviours
        and that just as they are manufactured
        into existence - with our assistance
        they can be changed
        and the energy transformed

        to know
        what alleviates
        anxious nervous boredom
        and nothingness
        by doing something
        anything that gives us means
        to control and feel success
        is to know the recipe
        for wilfulness
        or the willingness
        to do what is right and just
        because it leads us away from
        a distasteful and dissatisfied life.
