Restlessness is the opposite of peace –
Anger of joy.

So why do we insist on spending time
In dismal lands – far from the spirit –
Even though, from birth, we possess a passport into the world of the Good?

Yes, it’s true that agitation and sleeplessness
Are fruits of a spiritual disease –
But in God’s medicine chest
Every single pill, elixir, and cream – all “natural,” by definition –
Can cure anything.

Long ago, when God began calling human beings
To come home –
They didn’t hear because they had been listening to something else.

The ones who did hear became the elect – the chosen ones –
But, those who, for some reason, didn’t,
Spent most of their time and energy enhancing the “fantastic” in their lives –
Because that’s all they were capable of experiencing at the time.
