The Star of Redemption by Franz Rosenzweig

The soul
responds
to God’s-cry
with its own
the desire
to be loved
mutual
the desire
to be complete

If you are only
loved
not loving
back
you may
slip into
obscurity
you must participate!
Cosmic Unity

The Tragic Hero
we
desiring not
to hear
not to see
we must
reclaim our-selves
break chain-dust

Looking
at the world
the world looks back
we
recipient of revelation
acting passively
danger
of slipping
into reclusivity

Mystic wearing
the ring of Gyges
unfortunately
let
the world see
your Joseph
colored-wings!

Be a hero
let your seclusion
become
discourse
actualization
not
merely ecstasy

Be seen
Be heared
acting with
intentionality
dialogos
hero to the
world

Saint-man
overcome particularity
by embracing
particularity
one-dimension
of the multiplicity
of Totality
share
your
story
disco-ball lighting
up the party

Redeem yourself!
configurate
yourself within
global constellation
be
an active participant
in Cosmic Creation
reveal in
earthly love
the right
direction
of a man with character
turning
re-newed
facing God
in
the face
of one’s neighbor

Shalom
