We create a “self”
To protect our true self –
Which we may never come to know.
We protect this “self”
So that the true self – hidden deep inside –
Might, one day, feel safe enough to appear.
The “self” works, marries,
Saves for retirement –
And, generally, watches its step.
But this is not the Way –
Because one has to be willing for the ego-self to “die” for that.
Similarly, God turns out not to be “religious” at all – not in the slightest bit –
Because God is primarily a destroyer –
Obliterating artificiality wherever and whenever it appears.
Seven and a half billion people have been milling around –
Waiting for a word that could become the new “First Word” for humanity.
Who will speak it?
Who will frame the question we all want asked?
The day humanity finally gains its potential to become One
It will be asked
Because it’s always been the same question.
