Thinking is good – perhaps even better than knowing –
Because thinking is a tool – like a knife is for cutting –
And cutting is important to distinguish one thing from another.
For most human beings, thinking is an outward-facing tool –
Rarely used for cutting the cutter.
People make exquisitely fine cuts
Truly accurate dissections of others –
But, ordinarily, fail to address themselves.
Someone able to use a knife on herself
Is able to open eyes all over her body
To see through time and space.
If she keeps cutting, she’ll end up with nothing –
Which is a result God encourages – ultimate freedom!
The place where the universe begins and ends –
Where love, truth, justice, beauty, and freedom
Constitute points from which everything else bursts into being –
Where spirit touches the material world –
After taking a long path from material to spirit –
And then repeating itself
Over and over again.
