XIII

The divisive world we have created
Is an outcome of separation from the whole.
Dualistic solutions to all this ignorance and confusion
Pose upon the same conflict-ridden paradigm, and resolve nothing.

* * * *
A gourmet craves taste, a musician sound,
A perfumer scent, a masseuse touch,
A painter color, a scholar thought.
How enticing the play of senses and mind,
That to become a connoisseur of one or more,
So many dedicate their existence to endless pursuit.

* * * *
Virtual reality is not just a computer fantasy.
The senses have created the universe with such precision
That you have yet to truly fathom
That none of it is real.
It is software born of divine programming.

* * * *
All paths to glory find the same grave.

* * * *
Science dissects and names with great finesse,
But of what use is a universe torn to pieces?

* * * *
All life in the unfolding present
Has survived since the immaculate genesis.
The unyielding capacity for domination of this manifest realm
Will be humankind’s inevitable unraveling
If it does not instead collectively
Attain a unified sense of guardianship.

* * * *
We are all spontaneously making up the rules as we go.
Playing so everyone wins is not a game easily learned.

* * * *
Right living is not a statement of morality.
It is a moment-to-moment feeling of intuitive rightness.
It is playing out this illusive dreamy theater as effortlessly as possible.
