XXI

What so many believe religion to be,
Is acted out as arrogant, improbable propaganda.
It is a secondhand act of memory, of recollection and regurgitation.
Real revelation comes spontaneously from union within.

* * * *
To believe godness is only that which is out of the ordinary
Is an error humanity succumbs to again and again.
All manifest forms carry on in the same field.
A bit of dust is as much a divine mystery
As the greatest miracle ever rendered.
There is truly nothing ordinary about anything.

* * * *
Many operate thinking
That something outside themselves
Will foster everlasting happiness and contentment.
Only because they are not paying attention
To that from which all things flow.

* * * *
We are fast-approaching the reckoning point
In the dynamic movement of human consciousness
When we as a tentative life form have no choice
But to reconcile the countless differences
And see the unmanifest universality,
The absolute unity of awareness.
Our many differences are imagined,
But the results of this continued delusion
Are potentially devastating to all life on this planet.
To continue this paradigm as it has evolved is unutterable madness.

* * * *
You have the advantage of history
To thoroughly witness the enduring confusion
Wrought by the delusional rigidity of organized religions.
When will you wrest your sovereign nature from those who would tame it?

* * * *
Your desire, your fear, your suffering,
Your mistaken hope that someone else will save you
Has been wielded against you since the seeds of consciousness took root.
It is time to clearly discern that you know as much as anyone,
That it is you alone who must choose to be free.
