Sixty-Five


65


All the idolatry in the world
Will not transport anyone any nearer to God
Than they each and every single one already every moment are.
All scriptures, all dogmas, all images, all symbols, all intermediaries, all assertions,
Are but empty, meaningless, untoward, even tragic distractions

* * * *
Truth is that which is prior to consciousness,
Prior to all the metaphors that create as many universes
As there are seeds to sow their dreamy reality.

* * * *
For serenity within and without:
Good food, good water, good breathing,
A predisposition toward simplicity and tranquility,
And good will towards all sentient beings.
True wealth is a state of oneness.

* * * *
Change is the lie.
Truth is eternal, indelibly indivisible,
As still as still can be.

* * * *
All consciousness is of arbitrary design.
The only absolute is the eternal awareness
Prior to all dreams born of a sensory nature.

* * * *
A drop alone is merely a drop,
But all together they compose a mighty sea.
Such is the nature of godness, and the infinity of universes
Made manifest in the ever-unfolding creation.

* * * *
You truly yearn to know, to touch that which is God?
Then just be very, very still, and in the effortless awareness,
You will discern the true nature permeating all from great to small.

* * * *
The foundation of any religious groupthink is one dogma or another,
All for the longing for something that is not, never was, and will never be.
It requires a timeless mind to discern the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
