I’m an English major and I read this poem about 3 years ago, so I’ll do the best I can.but I think “it focuses on an idealized rural life” would probably be the best answer here.
The originator of pastoral poems was Theocritus, a 3rd century B.C. greek. The traditional pastoral is an elaborately conventional poem expressing an urban poet’s nostalgic image of the peace and simplicity of the life of shepherds and other rural folk in an idealized natural setting.From your list it seems to fit the requirements.
How can a person ever find themselves if everyone is busy playing God with their life? You have religious folks telling people how they can and how they can’t live.And you have atheists who think their opinions and assumptions counts for something when the only person it really counts for is their own self centered self.I believe in the scripture that tells us to count it all joy when facing various trials and tribulation. How in the world am I going to count any thing joyish if I have religious people telling me what I can do and what I can’t do, or you have the none believers who love given their opinions as if their opinions really means anything.
When you have true joy, you are able to tune all the other static out. First of all, know yourself. Study the word for yourself. Stay on the path that leads you toward true joy. All the static will be just that. Static. You know in your heart what is true for you. Study on that and when you find your own path, keep it to yourself for awhile until you are so filled with the joy of your discovery that nothing can sway you.
The answer is that to become truly spiritual is to find yourself alone. You find yourself independent of the story we all tell ourselves before transcendence and you will find yourself completely alone while observing a world of people making life as complicated as it can possibly be and harming any person who does not reinforce their story of themselves.Paradoxically you will find those that claim spirituality more lost than those that don’t because they are trying to find something that is already there. Ever lost your keys and looking everywhere but your own hand. It would be frightening to see people do this, except you are left without fear.
It isn’t playing God it is called thinking and it is the problem all are born with. Not to be cruel but you have to turn the thinking off at some point or another; including the residual thoughts that have been placed in or are coming through your own head.You turn all that off to listen to your own heart where contact with the eternal is made. Has nothing to do with whether other people are right or wrong. If all you have in this life is what is going on in your head, or you spend your time attempting to raise your energy to some mindless god of life forces, your heart will always remain empty and you will die never knowing the real joy of life that Jesus Christ has afforded.You will find that what you are questioning now, and not liking very much, is nothing but background noise. There is a place inside of you beyond self where the still waters and green pastures for the heart reside. When you find that joy you walk with it and your feelings about the confusion will become a little less critical. You may find you have more to offer.Perhaps you have some needless trials and tribulations too. For it is also written: Be still and know that I am God. From the view you give in your question I see a troubled world looking at struggling Christians.Counting something as joy and experiencing joy are as different as night and day. The instruction to count trials as joy is given to people and they somehow end up doing more counting then rejoicing —- Am I right? This works so seldom that most Christians forget about it. “Gosh, I should have counted that for joy?”The instruction you quote was given to people who had not yet found the experience of full and living joy in the kingdom. So again I ask. Do we spend the rest of our life counting trials and putting them in a joy pile; or do we have true joy within, under all circumstances, and stop living by the numbers?Not all of this answer may be for you, but it is for somebody that will read it.
Praise be to Allaah,The people of Sunnah and Jamaa’ah (Ahl al-Sunnah) believe that Allaah is exalted above His creation because of the evidence of the Qur’aan, Sunnah, consensus of the scholars, common sense and man’s innate instinct (fitrah(1) The Qur’aan describes the “exaltedness” or “highness” of Allaah in different ways, as His being High and Above, and by describing how things come down from Him, and go up to Him, and by stating that He is above heaven.
